Welcome to DANCE WITH JANET !

I offer live, in-person classes in couples and line dancing six days a week (couples lessons are available privately).  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!!!).  We truly belong to a WONDERFUL community of people!  I look forward to adding you to the group.  Click on the class level (the blue title as in “BEGINNER 1 LINE DANCE CLASSES”) you are interested in for details on which dances are included.  Register for a class TODAY!

Online lessons and DVDs are available, but if you prefer learning in-person, I teach group classes in Elgin, Hanover Park, St. Charles, Warrenville, & Wheaton and soon in Itasca, Oakbrook Terrace, and Westmont.  If you prefer learning privately, I can teach you in your home.  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? I host dances in Batavia, Warrenville, West Chicago, and Wheaton.  To see when our next dances are, visit the Upcoming Events Page Cover is $7 and includes 2 complementarily line dance lessons; 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.
