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…
