I am asked all the time, "Natalie, where can we go dancing?", and I always answer, "Anywhere you like!"; because it's true! You can dance at our practice parties, in your kitchen, at the next family wedding, or dozens of restaurants and clubs in the Chicagoland area.
One of the wonderful things about dancing is it requires no equipment and no planning! You do not need balls, bats, uniforms, or a tournament schedule. You can bust-out in spontaneous dance whenever and wherever the mood strikes! Here are a few spots to get you started:
