Dances Flyer

Lady Di gets a headache trying to figure out where she is dancing every Tuesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.  On the off chance that she is not the only one, the revised Dance With Janet flyer should help us ALL remember where we are going.  Each location is listed on the Upcoming Events page of my website.  VIDEOS and STEP SHEETS of what I’ve taught at those dances within the last two months are also provided there.

Again, thank you for your patience during this time of restructuring.  I feel like we are survivors of a shipwreck, as we have the common bond of dancing together at the former Cadillac Ranch and we are reassembling elsewhere.  All the legwork is completed and the final dance schedules have been posted on the Upcoming Events page of my website, as previously stated.  Our tour of the Chicago suburbs is complete, and things should settle down now.  We have PLENTY of options of where to go to dance, and you’ll be able to find me at consistent locations now.  YAY!!

DANCEWITHJANET.COM has had a facelift and is hopefully even easier to navigate now.  Please visit and let me know your thoughts!  A significant change to note is the absence of the Cadillac Ranch and Warrenville tabs.  They have merged into our new best friend, the Upcoming Events tab.  Additionally, the order of the tabs in the header has changed.  Enjoy exploring it!
