Free Evanston Latin lesson and dance with live band

Come to the conveniently located the intersection of Maple Avenue and Church Street, at the Evanston (Davis St.) Metra stop, two short blocks from the CTA Davis Street stop.. There is a (pay) parking garage a half block north, but I have always found free streed parking 3-4 blocks to the west, south of Davis. Look for the dance party between American Apparel and Chef’s Station’s patio (that restaurant looks great, though pricey). The official address of the dances is the 909 Davis St. Plaza, though from Davis street the band would sound far away. Dance instruction: 6:00-6:45pm (though sometimes extends till the band plays) and the band plays for your dancing or listening pleasure from 7:00-9:00p.m. Each week features a different dance style: R&B, Latin, oldies, Big Band, and rock/pop classics. This sometimes starts late, but still we need to arrive early if we are to meet and stake out our own area. And especially if you want to find free parking. This is dancing on a hard surface, so wear comfortable shoes that won't be damaged. This is a free event and all ages are welcome!

    The teacher was top notch for teaching a group of mostly novices. When I heard she planned to teach Merengue, bachata, cha-cha *AND* salsa, I figured there wouldn't be enough of any of them to do anyting. But she did teach enough, even with a late start and ending at 6:55.

    The band was OK for salsa, but the whole evening they played one cha-cha, one merengue and no bachata. Some tunes were marginal salsa, two so bad, it was hard to do anything (one medley started as rumba, later was merengue-ish, later cha-cha-ish, then nothing but the same poor salsa the rest of it could have been).
