REMINDER:  I’m hosting a BRIDGE (Beginner/Intermediate) Dance THIS SUNDAY at the WHEATON VFW ($10 cover at 0N731 Papworth St. from 1-4 pm) followed by COUPLES LESSONS from 4:15 – 5:15 Cost will be $8/person for the lesson only, or $5/person for the lesson if you’ve attended the dance before the lesson.

Dancers are more comfortable in bars than in park district classes now, although Bloomingdale’s registration is still open for classes beginning 3/10.  I’m continuing with virtual/online classes as scheduled thru March.  If and when it changes, I’ll let you know. 

One more thing:  The TWO For TWO special lasts only thru the end of March!  It provides the perfect opportunity to experience my teaching style of line dancing from your home, in your pj’s, with NO COMMUTE!  Learn TWO entry-level line dances in TWO 30-minute lessons with me, online (one dance per lesson) for only $2.  The links for the two pre-recorded lessons will be included in your receipt.  Simply click on them and download them to your computer, and instantly transform your living room into a dance classroom!

As always, feel free call or text me at 630-492-0401 with any questions!

Love ya!
