What’s It Like To Dance With Janet?

We dance every Tuesday night for 3 hours, from 7 – 10 pm.  We are usually at the Wheaton VFW (0N731 Papworth St, Wheaton 60187), except for the 4th Tuesday of the month.  Check the appropriate schedule (see below) to see where we are on the 4th Tuesday, as it may be changing.  Tuesday are ALL REQUESTS Nights. We’ll have a list of dances to  help you remember what you know; just mark of which dances you want to do.  Included in your $8 cover are 2 line dance lessons (beginner at 7:30 & intermediate at 8:30).  Drinks are available at the bar at very reasonable prices.

Our weekend dances are usually BRIDGE Dances*.  Three line dance lessons will be taught from 7 – 7:45 pm and we’ll review them during the rest of the dance and play your requests as well.  We dance Country PLUS, which means half of the music is country and the other half is a mixture of pop, rock and anything else!  We encourage lines AND couples dancing at all dances, but call mostly lines.  All ages are welcome; please bring your parent if you can’t drive yourself.  Minors are allowed at all our dances, but of course they are not allowed in the actual bar portion of the VFWs.  Admission is complimentary for those guests 12 and under, and $8 for those 13 and older.  Locations will vary so check the calendar to see where we are each weekend.

I’ll bet you’ll know a lot of the dances we’ll be dancing. Visit the Dances We Have Done – Beginner and the Dances We Have Done – Intermediate pages for a complete list of dances…which includes, of course, YOUR REQUESTS!!  Check it out!

*BRIDGE DANCES – What’s a BRIDGE Dance?

Would you like to line dance but aren’t sure how? Here is where you’ll learn, without the pressure of being in a bar. Tonight we are BRIDGING the gap between those new to line dancing and those comfortable with it!

Join the Dance With Janet team for a night of BEGINNER dances! If you or someone you know doesn’t know how to line dance, THIS is the dance to attend, as we’re gearing the evening towards YOU!! We’ll introduce new dancers to the world of open dancing out “on the town” in an non-threatening setting.

If you take classes with me, you WILL know the dances which will be called. I understand how scary it can be to go dancing and feel confident in what you’ve learned. BRIDGE Dances are the perfect place to practice what you’ve learned, as well as learn how to dance if you don’t know how to yet. Schedule will be:

7:00 – 7:45: Learn THREE BEGINNER 1 (entry level) line dances – PERFECT for new line dancers!

7:45 – 10:00: Open line dancing, which includes split floor songs where the easier dance is a Beginner level dance. All beginner dances will be shown & called.  Intermediate dances will be reviewed as needed.

Bring your requests & your own snacks and drinks; $8 cover (DWJ cards ARE accepted)

See you there!
