Are You Caught Up?

Lately it’s been a challenge to stay on top of all the changes in my dance world.  We’ve lost Cadillac Ranch as our main dance hall and replaced it with various locations.  We’re also adding more floor splits, so people of all levels have more opportunity to dance each time a song is played.  New…

Where Are You Going?

  Lady Di gets a headache trying to figure out where she is dancing every Tuesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.  On the off chance that she is not the only one, the revised Dance With Janet flyer should help us ALL remember where we are going.  Each location is listed on the Upcoming Events page of my website.  VIDEOS and STEP SHEETS of what I’ve taught at…

No More Wondering!

I moved into Geneva in 1999, and found the American Legion Post 75 within a month (since it’s right across the street from the library, and I’m a library gal). Of course I peeked in the window and saw the MAPLE HARDWOOD FLOOR, and thought, boy, would it be cool to have a dance here.  WELL, as of TONIGHT, there’ll be…

Dancers Are Invading Wheaton!

I never thought I’d see the day when we’d dance regularly in the western suburbs, but it sure looks like this party is gonna fly!  So many dancers who take classes with me are from the Wheaton area; I’m so pleased that we were able to find a nearby facility where we can dance on…

Counting Down The Days

I’m sure I’m not the only one counting down the last days of the existence of Cadillac Ranch. Boy, but it’s been one heck of a run. I find myself of two minds. I know they’ve said they’ll reopen with a different concept, and I’m looking forward to seeing what that will be, but there’s…

Is Cadillac Ranch CLOSING?!

  Can it be?  Is Cadillac Ranch, the almost 25-year old country bar which set the standards for every other country dance hall around, really closing?  Sadly, yes. As you’ve probably seen on Facebook, or heard through the grapevine, Cadillac Ranch’s last evening open will be March 26th, 2016.  As they’ve stated, they intend to…
