October Happenings
Dear Roger,         
October is Cha Cha Month at SNC
Wednesday lessons Oct 6, 13, 20, 27; Friday Dance Oct 22
Just ask Bill, Bob, Roger, Wayne,  Don, Ann,  Judi and, of course, Pierrick and Pierre about the competition successes they've had while under training by Hania Richmond.   This very talented teacher can bring the best out in you in any dance whether it be for social or competition reasons.
Join us during October and learn how to press the ball of your foot into the ground in order to make those hips move the sexy cha cha way.   You'll also learn easy to understand patterns and connection.
Specialty Dance Lesson:  The Polka
Friday, October 1

Jon Serletic can make this energetic and lively dance seem effortless.   Jon is the Polka King of the Chicago area who quickly improvises as he gently moves his follow about the floor.
Join us for a lesson in the dance that makes everyone smile
