Happy Memorial Day!

As we close out the month of May, we wish all of you a save and happy Memorial Day Weekend, and we wish to remember all those in memoriam who made the ultimate sacrifice by serving to make our country and the world a little safer, to keep the peace, and to keep our freedoms.  See you all in June.

With our Wednesday lessons on summer vacation, and July and August our Friday lessons going on Summer vacation, June dances then become your last chance to be polished for your Summer dancing.

We start June off with the ever happy and always fun Don M. teaching Two-Step, a dance he has been doing since the dawn of the Country/Western dance explosion in the 80's here in Chicago.  In short, he knows what he is doing and knows how to teach it.

So, what can we say about Eric Nava?  

2018 UCWDC Division 1 World Champion (he's got the belt buckle to prove it), taught many times at SNC as partner for Brittney Valdez and even for Rachel Mercedes, always so fun and a sort of a clown that you don't even realize your learning because you're having a blast at it, oh, and yes - especially for you ladies - a hunk.  

Convinced yet?  You should be.  Come out June 15 and learn Night-Club Two-Step Eric Nava style.  You will not regret it.
