Welcome to your Dose of Dancing; a diversion from the heavy news bombarding us from all sides.  I’m glad I’ve continued dancing during covid; it’s kept me sane and at least somewhat focused.  Although dancing together looks a lot different than it used to, I encourage you to keep it up, for the same reasons.  And if you don’t know how to line dance, boy, have I got a DEAL FOR YOU!!

Sign up at www.dancewithjanet.com/join to receive 10 Days of Dances from the instructors on the Dance With Janetteam!  Each day you’ll receive an email with a link to a video.  It’s the perfect way to sample the style of different instructors – from home – and best of all, it’s FREE!!  You’ll receive your first email this Wednesday, October 21st.  Why not?

And then, let’s dance!!!

DWJ In-Person Mask Policy:  Masks are optional.  When we dance inside, it’s with limited attendance in a big space so we can be adequately spaced apart and comfortably line dance without masks.  During classes in Park Districts, that rule applies also, but masks are required in common areas.  Additionally, Bloomingdale & Wheaton Park Districts require masks the entire time we are in one of their facilities, even when we’re dancing.

As always, sign up for virtual lessons at www.dancewithjanet.com/virtualby 7 pm for Monday & Wednesday’s 7 pm classes.  I continue to look forward to dancing with you!

Love ya!
