You aren't getting itchy to try a new place to dance, are you?  Really?  You're ready for a new venue?  Cuz I've got one, starting TONIGHT!  It's the same one we're alternating with the Wheaton VFW on Tuesday nights, but we're starting it THIS FRIDAY, and we'll still be there on the 2nd & 4th Tuesdays, starting this Tuesday, May 10th.  The West Chicago VFW where we were dancing was booked for the first 3 Fridays in May, so we'll be at the Elgin American Legion Post 57 (NOT the VFW where DJ Dave holds his Sunday dances) TONIGHT AND IN TWO WEEKS, on May 20th.  Come early for the fish fry!

ALSO…we debut our performance season on MAY 21st at the Just Play event in Carol Stream.  We take the stage at11:45, so please be there by 11:30; attire is your Dance With Janet shirt and blue denim bottoms.  We will be dancing on concrete, so I advise against cowboy boots.  Gym shoes work MUCH better.  For the list of dances and more performance dates, visit and scroll down to the RED performance calendar.  After the show, I invite you to join me for Culver's ice cream (on Schmale Road in Carol Stream) – my treat!!

At 3 pm on the 21st, after Culver's, we're heading over to Keith and Karen Moutvic's home (1619 N. President St., Wheaton, IL 60187) till 6:30 pm for our POST/PRE CRUISE PARTY!  If you've attended either of the two past Dance With Janet Cruises, and/or are thinking of attending the next one on February 18, 2017, come on over!  This is our time to reunite after a fabulous vacation at sea together, and talk about our upcoming cruise.  Please bring a dish to pass if you can.

May 21st wraps with a dance in Warrenville from 7 – 10 pm (3S240 Warren Ave.) – talk about a fantastic way to end a day with friends – dancing with them!  Hope to see you there!
