It’s another crisp & rainy Fall day, but at least we’re alive to enjoy it!  We made it to Friday, and the weekend is HERE!!

** Reminder that DJ Dave and I are not hosting dances at the Spotted Fox on Saturdays anymore. We are trying a new venue for the next TWO Saturdays, November 5th and November 12th:

Black and Gray Brewing Co.
311 Barrington Ave Unit B
East Dundee, IL 60118
Dance 7-11 pm; $10 cover

Our host has a limited menu from which to choose, including craft beers brewed on the premises, various flavors of seltzer water and hard cider. Bottled water and soft drinks are also available, and you are welcome to bring in any food you’d like. Please support our host, Theresa, and purchase beverages!  The way to keep host venues happy and long term is to ensure they are profitable when we are there.  We’re hoping this will be a new home for the country dance community!

** My LAST Workshop of 2022 is THIS SUNDAY from 1 – 4 pm at the Wheaton VFW.  If you’d like to learn some challenging, popular line dances (Come Dance With Me, Lay Low, Dizzy, & No Body But Yours), NOW is the time!  I’ve been asked to teach DIZZY at a workshop many times, so here it is!  Pay $30 at the door or save $5 by pre-registering by MIDNIGHT TONIGHT at  I’m looking forward to seeing you there!

** COUPLES CLASS resumes THIS MONDAY 11/7 at 6:15 in Elgin.  I’ll be teaching some fun & easy pattern dances for the rest of the calendar year, AND providing practice time for your Two Step & Double Two.  We’ll be going through the Patterns 1 DVD, which is available for $30 on my website or in person.  Dances include 16 Step, Barnyard Mixer, Cha Cha Del Rio, Schottische, Shadow, & Stationary Cha Cha.  These are done all the time, so if you’ve been waiting to learn them, wait no longer!

** If you’re new to DWJ, enjoy HALF OFF YOUR FIRST CLASS through the end of the year.  Now it’s only $5 to see what all the country fuss is about (and believe me, it’s something worth fussing about!!!)

As always, it’s my pleasure to see you on the dance floor!!

See you SOON!!
