Are you in, meaning, did you remember to sign up for DWJ’s 10 Days of Dances at www.dancewithjanet.com/join?  You hear from me all the time.  Why not see and meet (virtually, of course) the other instructors of DWJ dance classes?  Who knows; you may resonate especially with one or more of them.  You’ll discover line dancing appeals to all kinds of people, everywhere.  AND you’ll learn 10 Beginner line dances, to boot!

Did I mention it’s FREE?  What’s not to like??  Every day, starting tomorrow, a new email will arrive in your inbox with a video.  Some are shortish; some are longish.  All are FUN and educational, and all are yours forever!  They cost you only your time, and they deliver a dance you can use to lots of songs.  Pull out your favorite tunes and try these line dances at home!  BUT you must sign up to participate…

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 requires masks the entire time we are in one of their facilities, even when we’re dancing.

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

Love ya!
Janet
