Welcome to DANCE WITH JANET !

I offer live, in-person classes in couples and line dancing six days a week.  Please check the schedule below to find a class near you which fits into your lifestyle.  Times, locations, and the level of the class are noted.  This is where you’ll learn the dances we do in “The Real World”, and where lifelong friendships are made (Really!!  Corny but true!!!).  This is truly a WONDERFUL community of people!  I look forward to adding you to the group; register for a class today!  Click on the class you are interested in for details on which dances are included.

Online lessons and DVDs are available, but if you prefer learning in-person, I teach in Carol Stream, St. Charles, Warrenville, & Wheaton.  See what the classes are like on the Line Dance Classes & Couples Dance Classes pages.  I am also available as a guest instructor for private events – I’ve taught at the McDonald’s, Havi Global Solutions, Veolia Environmental Services, MAEOPP, & Liberty Mutual Insurance corporate parties, to name a few.  Please contact me if you’d be interested in having me teach some line dances for your personal or corporate event; it’s a great way to get people moving and spice up the party!

And…what good are classes without a place to go & practice what you’ve learned? Check out all the new places we offer in which to dance on the right side bar.  Doors open at 7 pm each night (except for Sundays, at 6); stop by and dance with us!

Dances are also hosted in Warrenville at the Warrenville Community Building (3S240 Warren Ave., Warrenville, IL).  We line dance on the first & third Saturdays from 7-10 pm; couples dancing around the perimeter is encouraged.  I teach a line lesson at 7:30 & 8:30.   On the second & fourth Sundays from 6-9 pm we dance alternating sets of couples and line dances.  DJ Jeff plays your requests at all these dances.  Warrenville events are family friendly as no alcohol is allowed; guests of ALL AGES are welcome. To see when our next dances are, visit the Upcoming Events Page Cover is $5; feel free to bring your own munchies, water & soft drinks are for sale.  We would love to dance with you!

As more classes are officially scheduled they’ll be added to the calendar.  Please use this calendar as a guide for future classes; they’ll be offered at the same times.  Regarding class content, couples dances rotate (we teach one type of dance for a four week class) and will be noted in the schedule.  Specific moves taught will be tailored to the class participants’ needs & abilities.  Line dances also rotate so each class session is different.  Visit the Dances We’re Learning tabs under Line Dance to see what has been taught so far.  I’ll introduce new line dances, and will add them to the lists as they are taught.
