January 2018 Dance
"21st Anniversary Celebration Dance and Buffet"
at St. John's Lutheran Church, Algonquin, IL
We are sorry, but due to unforeseen circumstances
our January 20, 2018 dance has been canceled.
Please check back for updates. Thank you.
Our next dance, "The 21st Anniversary Celebration Dance and Buffet", will be held on Saturday, January 20, 2018 at St. John's Lutheran Church Activity Center.
The Buffet will be held between 6:00pm and 7:30pm with plenty of delicious food available. We are asking if you could kindly bring a dish to pass either an appetizer or dessert so we have a fun variety of food for everyone. Also, this dance is a benefit for the Food Pantry, so we are asking for a minimum donation of $2 per person that will go directly to replenish the Food Pantry’s supplies. Canned and dry foods are also greatly appreciated!
Then, dance off the added calories with a free Lindy Hop Swing lesson at 7:45 pm from Professional Ballroom Dance Instructors Frank and Jackie Penze! Open dancing will start at 8:15 pm and continue until 10:30 pm with Ballroom, Latin & Swing music provided by DJ "Dr. Rod".
There will be free cake and coffee, door prizes, a 50-50 drawing and surprises. The dress code is dressy casual, no jeans or gym shoes. Admission is $8/person for USA Dance members, $12/person for non-members and $10/person for seniors 65 and older.
St. John's Lutheran Church is located at 300 Jefferson St., Algonquin, IL. See the "Maps" page on this website for directions to this location and to download a map.
