What's Up in August?
Friday, August 2:  Ice Cream Social
Ice Cream will be served by your Board of Directors.   Come dance the night away breaking only to treat yourself to your favorite flavor  and topping.   Your DJ is Ken Dillard spinning tunes from 8pm to 12am.

Read about the history of our club, read the bios of our instructors, browse through for much, much more and MOST IMPORANT, check out the photos.   The most recent (supplied by Don Leynes and Liz Gutzweiler) are of Dance Camp Chicago.  Thank you Roger Peterson for constantly updating our web site to provide a wealth of information in an easy to navigate format.
Dance Tip

Slow Down and Enjoy.
"When you rush something, you loose focus on the little things that make it worth doing in the first place."  Only lead moves that you fully understand.  Take time, have fun, while being on time.   Make this a dance she will always remember (in a good way).

Financial Tip
Discover if you have more money for dancing

The state of Illinois currently has $1.7 billion dollars in cash, plus contents from Illinois bank safe deposit boxes, which need to be returned to Illinois residents. Most assets are transferred to the state after they've been inactive for at least five years.


It's easy for Illinois residents to discover if they have assets waiting for them. Residents have nothing to lose, and everything to gain, by searching the I-Cash website.  Discovery is a simple, three-step process:   


  1. Enter your name in the online search field
  2. If it's a match, fill out and submit the online claim form 
  3. Receive your property or cash and enjoy what you've discovered
