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 Tuesdays.  We will be invading the Wheaton VFW (0N731 Papworth St., just west of the intersection of Schmale/Main St. Wheaton & Geneva Rds., on Geneva Rd.) TONIGHT from 7 – 10!

Cadillac Ranch has not announced plans to resume dancing on Tuesdays yet.  What they have mentioned in the Daily Herald doesn’t look very favorable for line OR couples dancing.  I’d like to keep them going!  Therefore, at dances I host, I encourage both line AND couples dancers.  If we have couples dancers present, our songs will alternate between 4 lines & 3 couples.  Of course, we will play to the crowd, and lines in the middle of couples dances may be possible, depending on how full the floor is.  Please, let’s share the floor, as our favorite hobby encompasses both single and partner dancing, and is unique in that regard.  The schedule in my world for April is as follows (click on the links for flyers; I’ll teach 2 beginner lessons at each dance):

  • On the FIRST & THIRD TUESDAYS, we’ll dance at the Wheaton VFW Post 2164, 0N731 Papworth St., Wheaton IL 60187 from 7 – 10 pm ($5 admission).
  • On the SECOND & FOURTH TUESDAYS, we’ll dance at the American Legion Post 1231, 1101 W. Algonquin Rd., Lake In The Hills IL 60156 from 7 – 10 pm ($5 admission).
  • This FRIDAY APRIL 8th, we’ll dance at the American Legion Post 75, 22 S. 2nd St., Geneva IL 60134 from 7 – 10 pm ($5 admission).
