Bonnie Marr


Bonnie hit the dance floor with Janet hard in 2014 and never looked
back!  She mastered all the dances in record time.  People naturally
followed her, so she pursued teaching, which was the next logical
step.  Bonnie is a regular substitute instructor for
Dance With Janet classes.

Cathie Friedel


Cathie has been dancing with Janet since 2012.  Her infectious laugh
and positive outlook have contributed to her nickname, “Bubbles”
which she certainly lives up to. She takes great delight in sharing
her hobby with new dancers and it’s very evident to see!  Cathie
teaches Beginner line dance classes in Itasca, Darien, and West Chicago.

Cathy Dugan


Cathy began dancing with Janet in 2013.  Though a bit on the quiet
side, she is a natural leader, and people instinctively listen when she
speaks.  Her dedication and passion for dancing is obvious and inspiring.
Cathy teaches Beginner line dance classes in Elgin and Bloomingdale.

Julie Schroeder


Julie has been dancing with Janet since 2016.  She quickly realized
this was the hobby for which she’d been searching, so she started
dancing 3-5 nights a week.  She is so friendly and easy going that
she fits right in with any group.  Julie teaches Beginner
line dance classes in Wheaton.

Karen Moutvic


Karen started dancing with Janet in 2013.  Once she discovered how
much fun dancing was, she made sure to hit the floor 2 – 3 nights
a week, without fail.  She’ll dance whenever she hears a song
that moves her, no matter where she is!  Karen teaches Beginner line
dance classes at Front Street Dance Studio and Butterfield Park District.

Kim Spath


Kim and Janet met on the dance floor in 2015. Their paths didn’t
cross too often in person, but Kim’s passion for dancing
kept her in the Dance With Janet community. She put her positive
outlook on life to good use and wasted no time starting
a dance group in her community in the northern Chicago suburbs.

Pam Schumacher


Pam began dancing with Janet 2013.  Her gift is encouraging
people, so teaching them how to dance comes very naturally
to her.  She’ll show new dancers what to do and have
them loving every minute of it!  Pam is a regular substitute
instructor for Dance With Janet classes.
