Welcome to DANCE WITH JANET !
Everyone loves music! Are you one of those who itches to MOVE to the music? If you are, you can head to a dance studio, but that’s not everyones cup of tea. Social dancing – the Dance With Janet world – is more relaxed. While all dancing has choreographed steps, line dancing is unique in that you can dance without a partner. It’s a pattern of steps that’s repeated throughout the course of an entire song, and yes, there are different dances to different songs. If you get bored easily, check out line dancing! In the Dance With Janet community we dance about 200 line dances. You won’t be bored!
Sometimes people can pick up line dancing in bars. I offer classes outside of clubs for those who prefer to give their footwork a bit more attention. Classes with me are small groups ranging from half a dozen to two dozen people. I spend time with you to make sure you are comfortable. In the process you will not only learn to dance, but you’ll build friendships with your fellow dancers that can last a LIFETIME!
I offer live, in-person classes in couples and line dancing six days a week. Please the teaching schedule page to find a class near you which fits into your lifestyle. Times, locations, and the level of the class are noted. This is where you’ll learn the dances we do in “The Real World”, and where lifelong friendships are made (Really!! Corny but true!!!). We truly belong to a WONDERFUL community of people! I look forward to adding you to the group. Register for a class TODAY!
Online lessons and DVDs are available, but if you prefer learning in-person, I teach group classes in Bloomingdale, Darien, Elgin, Glen Ellyn, Hanover Park, Itasca, Mt. Prospect, Oakbrook Terrace, St. Charles, Warrenville, West Chicago, Westmont, & Wheaton. Private Lessons are also available by appointment. See what the classes are like on the Line Dance Classes & Couples Dance Classes pages.
I also teach line dancing at private events – I’ve taught at the McDonald’s, Havi Global Solutions, Veolia Environmental Services, MAEOPP, & Liberty Mutual Insurance corporate parties, to name a few. Please contact me if you’d be interested in having me teach some line dances for your personal or corporate gathering; it’s a great way to get people moving and spice up the party!
And…what good are classes without a place to go & practice what you’ve learned? I host 6-8 dances per month in Batavia, Carol Stream, Warrenville, and Wheaton. To see when our next dances are, visit the Upcoming Events Page. Cover is $8 and includes 2 complementarily line dance lessons; feel free to bring your own munchies. Water & soft drinks (and adult beverages, if we are at a VFW or American Legion) are for sale. We would love to dance with you!
