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 $7 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*.  Four 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 $7 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’re Learning – Beginner and the Dances We’re Learning – Intermediate pages for a complete list of dances…which includes, of course, YOUR REQUESTS!!  Check it out!

 

Sunday Nite Country

*BRIDGE DANCES – What’s a BRIDGE Dance?

Tonight’s dance is to introduce new dancers to the world of open dancing out “on the town”. We understand how scary it can be to go dancing and feel confident in what you’ve learned. We are BRIDGING the gap between the classroom and the open dance floor. A lot of you take classes with me; this is the perfect place to practice what you’ve learned, or learn how to dance if you don’t know yet. Schedule will be:

7:00 – 7:45: I’ll be teaching 4 BEGINNER 1 line dance lessons – PERFECT for those who are new to line dancing! 

7:45 – 10:00: We’ll have “regular” open dancing, which includes split floor songs where the easier dance is a Beginner level dance.  Every 5th song will be a full floor intermediate dance to give the beginner dancers a break.

Bring your requests & your own snacks and drinks, $7 cover (DWJ cards ARE accepted)!!
