Chicago Area
Dance Calendar

~ January 2019 ~

From: Ralph Dahma (January 21, 2019)

Long story short: Effective immediately,
there will no longer be swing dancing at Hubcaps/Galaxy
on Wednesdays or any other night. It’s not for lack of support, since these
past 2 weeks have been well supported.
Let’s  just say it’s their business decision and leave it at that.
We’ll keep you posted if another venue becomes available.
