You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink…remember that line?  Oh, so true.  We are one step ahead of the crowd when we know what our issues are (yes I know, I've got an Achilles heel that so many of you roll your eyes about – myself included), but until we get working on those problems, we're only playing this game of life with our cards in our hands.  We may all roll our eyes at the stupid horse who won't drink when life-giving water is offered, but how many of us are the same way?  We whine about what we know needs attention in our lives…but do nothing.

Let's identify our problems, and then get to work on them!  If we won't, no one else will.  They sure won't go away on their own!!

Dance Details:

  • Our next big show is the LABOR DAY PARADE in Schaumburg on September 7th.  This is the third largest parade in the Chicagoland area (after Chicago and Naperville), so the audience will be HUGE, and the performances FABULOUS!  Please join me in your Dance With Janet shirt and BLUE DENIM BOTTOMS!!  The playlist has been updated – please take note!!!  The parade steps out at 10 am, and we are at the END.  Therefore I suggest you plan to arrive between 9:30 – 10:30.  Go to for details – scroll down to the RED PERFORMANCE calendar.
