Swing Dancing at Willowbrook Ballroom with The Flat Cats! Over 55 RSVPs!

Dance to the music of The Flat Cats at the historic Willowbrook Ballroom Friday, August 31st on Chicagoland’s largest dance floor. Let's celebrate Willowbrook's 91st Anniversary Year!

One of Chicago's best small Swing Bands, The Flat Cats play at Summerdance and regularly at Willowbrook. Attendance for Swing Dancing at Willowbrook is usually 200+.

Basic Swing lesson 7:30, The Flat Cats at 8:30. Admission is $12. Free Parking. No Meetup charge. Dress nice casual, Willowbrook policy is no blue jeans (or gym shoes). If you don't have dancing shoes, leather soles work the best. Full service bar.

Try to get there a little before 7:30 to Meetup. There is dancing for all levels and you might pick up a few tips by watching the more experienced dancers. RSVPs preferred so we know how many tables to hold, but don't stay away because you didn't RSVP.

Look for tables with Meetup signs. Hope to see you there.

    It was a great event! I had never before been to a meetup of any kind, and I will definitely go again. Jim had some buttons that said "Meetup" so you would know who was in the group. It was a nice icebreaker. Thank you Jim.
