Dave DiNaso’s Traveling World of Reptiles

If you are reading this right now it’s most likely because someone told you about us or recommended us to you. Over the past 20 years we have performed more than FOURTEEN THOUSAND shows in the chicago-land area. The web site, a few boxes of business cards and hundreds of free t-shirts is the extent of our advertising. The majority of people who know about us found out about us through word of mouth. We love what we do and it shows. If you have never seen The Traveling World of Reptiles it can best be described as an up-close, live, and extremely interactive or “hands on” experience about reptiles and amphibians from around the world. We blend education and a unique style of humor to form a totally original experience that makes our presentation every bit as entertaining as it is educational. In other words you will be every bit as impressed with the performer as you are with the animals. This is only a general description because each show is unique and much of what we say is total improv. Our 60 to 75 minute show is always safe and professional and we never force anyone to touch or handle the animals if they choose not to. If you would like the opportunity to see, touch, and learn about reptiles from all over the world and laugh a lot while doing so, you will love the Traveling World of Reptiles show.

In 1952 he moved his wife and 4 children to Burbank, California to work in the aerospace industry only to move back to Aurora in 1955 and again pursue his teaching and retail business.

John and Eileen Hix retired in 1996 and the three brothers bought the store and changed the name to Hix Brothers Music. The store was moved to its current location adjacent to the Fox Valley Mall in 1999 and has 11 teaching studios, a guitar repair shop, amplifier repair, a dedicated audio/tube amp room, and an acoustic guitar area.

Naperville Humane Society

Naperville Area Humane Society (NAHS) is a non-profit, limited admission animal shelter accepting cats and dogs. Our shelter can house as many as eighteen dogs and forty cats.

Each animal is tenderly cared for at NAHS. Entering a shelter can be stressful or possibly even terrifying to some cats and dogs. Our dedicated and highly trained staff and volunteers offer compassionate care to each animal and work to address his or her individual needs.
The staff works diligently to match the needs of each pet with a family eager to adopt a dog or cat. While at NAHS, all animals receive basic vaccinations as well as medical care. All animals are neutered or spayed before being released to their new owners. In addition, dogs’ temperaments are thoroughly assessed before being made available for adoption.

Unfortunately, there continues to be far too many cats and dogs needing help in our society. Since we cannot solve this overwhelming problem ourselves, we have evolved our approach to the homeless animal crisis to include innovative community service initiatives, such as humane education and a behavior helpline, while we continue to re-home animals.

Nick Connell

People and organizations hire me to foster a dynamic vibe with balloon “magic.” If you are planning a small or large gathering of any sort with some need for unique pizzaz, I could be a great addition to your party. Being dubbed “a normal person who can dazzle with balloons,” I have a passion for engaging with people (yes, children to adults) and creating fun moments together: with wit, humor and creativity.

I make every attempt to be prompt and professional, relaxed and flexible. And I wear the most natural smile my parents put on me. 🙂

I’ve entertained at a wide array of events: bar mitzvahs, wedding receptions, large fundraisers, birthday parties, block parties, festivals, carnivals, christenings, grand re-openings, bring your kids to work day, and the like. People hire me typically as the lead entertainment, and also as part of a larger mix of events and entertainment.

The typical amount of time is 1.5 – 2 hours, but I’ve been known to entertain for an entire day, without losing much luster. Fun will be had!

Salto Entertainment

About Salto Entertainment
Salto Entertainment was founded by Ivan España, a fifth generation heir to an incredible variety of circus history and talent. Ivan began performing as a young child and by his teens was an accomplished star on the family’s trapeze act named “The Flying Españas.” The Flying Españas gained global recognition by presenting an elegant and modern interpretation of the traditional flying trapeze act which has influenced and inspired trapeze artist ever since.

As Ivan’s talents as a performer were established, his interest in custom riggings were developing. Ultimately, his fascination with custom riggings, along with an emerging interest in daredevil stunts, led him to the development of a variety of new acts, including one of the first double Sky-wheels and a modernized presentation of motorcycle Thunder-Dome, a.k.a., The Globe of Death, along with the bungee trapeze and the graceful aerial Chiffon.

Through his innovation and showmanship, Ivan has been privileged to perform at The Sydney Opera House in Australia, Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen, Kiss in Concert, NBC’s “Death-Defying Thrills”, Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus and played a prominent role in the Lear Levin-Walt Disney Pictures video production “Circus”. These performances have led to international prizes such as the prestigious Silver Clown at the International Circus Festival in Monte Carlo in 1990 and the Action Maverick Award in New York City in 2007.

Challenged and inspired to continue influencing the circus, Ivan, together with his brother, Noe, brought to life one of the most spectacular productions, CIRQUESA-DreamQuest. CIRQUESA quickly became the Trip Advisor #1 Attraction in Virginia Beach in 2013. Thriving by the challenge to create the impossible, Ivan has continued to create a variety of new acts and productions, including Cirque Holidays, Moto Psycho Circus and more.

The Children’s Museum in Oak Lawn

The Children’s Museum in Oak Lawn is a place for families to learn, explore and soar together. It’s a place for children to be creative, to role play, and to build. It’s a place for parents to be the teacher in their child’s life. It’s a place for discovery, learning, and fun! Our mission is to positively impact a child’s potential in life through play-based education.
