Remember the fun that dance brought into your life and the many friendships gained through dance? 
Now is the time to introduce your non-dancing friends to the joy of dancing.  

Join us on Saturday, November 11th at

This dance features music with destinations in their title such as “Hotel California”, “April in Paris”, and others.

Now is the time to wear that article of apparel which identifies the place where you travelled, i.e. tee shirt, jacket, kilt, or Kimono!? It can also be based on a place you would like to visit.

Some are designing their “destination” shirt!

It will be fun to see how many places will be represented. 

& Silent Auction

   

Our silent auction is one of the favorite events of the year because baskets stuffed with items and gift cards which are usually sold far below their value. It’s just in time for the holidays to use for gift giving, too. The auction involves a lot of work getting gift certificates, baskets and items and then putting everything together to make attractive packages. If you have items to donate, gift certificates from your favorite places you patronize or perhaps helping to put together baskets, please give me a call, 847-639-8699 or email at jackiepenze@aol.com
