Hi Dancers!

Summer flew by so fast. We hope that everyone had a good one.

We’re very excited about our upcoming dances and are really looking forward to seeing you at the club's September dance.

Travel The World Dance

Please join us for an evening of dancing and socializing on Saturday, September 21st at our theme dance, “Travel the World” which will feature music with destinations in their title. Songs like, “Hotel California”, “Havana”, “April in Paris” and others.

Now is the time to wear an article of clothing that identifies a place you have traveled, or a place you would like to visit. It could be a tee shirt, jacket, scarf, hat, or other clothing. Some dancers are designing and creating their “destination” shirt. It will be fun to see how many places will be represented.

  NOTE: I have started collecting gift cards and items for the Silent Auction to be held at our November Dance, "Thanks for Giving". The auction has always been very popular because of the many items winning ids are at far less than the item's value.  
We have plenty of baskets this year but if you wish to donate merchandise or gift cards please let me know.
So far gift cards and/or merchandise have been donated from: 

    Countryside Flowers & Nursery 
    Half Price Books 
    Kyoto Japanese Steak House 
    Nick’s Pizza & Pub 
    Texas Road House 
    Plum Garden Restaurant 
    Jewel Osco 
    Rookies All-American Pub & Grill 
    Bulldog Ale House 
    Grand Buffet 
    D’s Boutique 
There are promises of more donations so be sure to update the list, so you can check them out in the next 'Dance! Newsletter'.  
Any help in designing baskets, collecting gift cards, and other items to be added to the auction will be much appreciated. If you'd like to be included, please Call Me at 847-639-8699 or send me an email at
Thank you!          

We look foward to seeing you all at the “Travel the World Dance”

We'll See You at the Dance!
