Chicago Area
Dance Calendar

~ February 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.
