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 250+.

Basic Swing lesson 7:30, The Flat Cats at 8:30. Admission is $10. Free Parking. No Meetup charge. Dress nice casual or vintage, 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.
