If you know anyone who has experienced a recent change (empty nest, retirement, new to the community, etc.) and looking for a new hobby, share this information with them and encourage them to dance.

Available for Private Lessons

We're available for private lessons anytime classes aren't already scheduled. Private lessons can be helpful if you're preparing for an event, are struggling with something, or just want some extra practice. $50/hour, they target what you want to work on and move at your pace rather than the class pace. Call 309.824.4007 to reserve your time.

Upcoming Tea Dances

Sunday Tea Dances give our students and members of the community an opportunity to practice. Dances are held from 2-5 pm on the second, third and fourth Sundays of the month. Admission is $7/person.

Let's Dance Big Band Weekend coming in July

Just Make It Happen is a non-profit organization in DeKalb, IL, which hosts a big band dance weekend in July—the 20th-22nd. Dance to live big bands Friday and Saturday evenings and Sunday morning. Drop in for lessons Saturday morning, and enjoy a hobby weekend. Information and registration are available on the website. We have attended for several years and thoroughly enjoy the weekend.
