What we're about

Meet with local dancers of all shapes, sizes, spots and stripes to discuss and practice social dance.

Chicago has an incredible number of great places to go dance, so let's get together and have a great time dancing. Whether you just want to learn how to dance social dances like Salsa, Swing, Tango or Samba! , or just want to move those hips and gyrate in your own, sexy way, this Meetup is for you.

Do you find yourself sometimes stuck at home bored or alone when you would rather be out doing something fun?

Expand your social circle. If you'd like to go out, have fun, meet new people, and make new friends thru a non-threatening and fun environment, then you have come to the right place.

Dancing is for everyone from beginners to more experienced dancers.

We go to different dance events around town. Whether you like lindy, swing, salsa, cha-cha, etc, there is a dance event for you.
