I have NEVER seen so many dancers at a festival before last night!  The Dance With Janet group came out of the woodwork to dance to the Hillbilly Rockstarz band at the Taste of Glen Ellyn.  Although the dance "floor" was a parking lot in front of the stage, it was SHOULDER TO SHOULDER with dancers!  I still can't believe how many people stopped by to dance and visit with friends they met on the dance floor.  It was quite a taste of what's to come, as we'll be joining the Rockstarz this year on the 4th Annual Dance With Janet Cruise, and dancing for a week to their music in the Caribbean.  What a season we will have this year, as we repeat this for the whole festival season!!

Yet it's all about the people.  Dancing is our hobby, our venue of interest, and hundreds of people share the passion.  It's through the safety of the dancing "net" that lifelong friendships are built, relationships are made, and treasures of the heart are nurtured. If you have not tried dancing yet, I can't encourage you enough to do so!

To that end, a new event has been created JUST FOR YOU!!  TOMORROW evening we debut our first BRIDGE DANCE, which has been designed to BRIDGE the gap between the classroom of brand new dancers (or those who'd like to line dance but have never tried) and the big bad scary world of the dance floor in the "real world".  NO PARTNER IS NEEDED!  We do have a location change.  I'm including the post which has been published on the Dance With Janet Facebook page for you:
