Central Illinois Social Dance Scene

bored and poor

I know... what a funny title!  But I find that I have to drive all over central Illinois to go dancing cause things in my semi-home base died a quick death, so I'm POOR.  I hooked up with a fella who doesn't DO ballroom slow but will do swings and freestyles... so I'm bored.  I'm hoping that when fall classes get going that more dances will be available in Bloomington-Normal,  but I doubt it.
Ya see,  THE VFW 454 stopped having bands every Sat night,  so we have few options and end up at Mackinaw Vineyards.  Which is cheap enuf but you're dancing on concrete and if hot shot big name bands are there... there's no room after dark to dance even on the concrete.

There's usually a Friday dance at THE EAGLES CLUB in downtown Bloomington with MARK AND MELISSA (DOUBLE TROUBLE).   They were attempting to do line dancing/country/some ballroom on first and third and then ballroom/swing on the second and fourth Fridays, but it was confusing. So,  they just play for whichever crowd shows up.  And if the line dancers are there and rudely taking up the floor,  there's not much room for swing or line-of-dance dances.  These are the same line dancers who took over DUKE'S DANCE AT THE MOOSE LODGE and so many many of us didn't renew our membership cause there wasn't any room to dance something other than their line dance.
Maybe TRI-LAKES BANQUET HALL will keep their country dances going with fun bands and the chix/fish fry every other Sat. night.
CHEEKS BAR AND GRILL still has bands but not much room for dancing,  but we still do it.

Then there's the BRING BACK DANCE GROUP with Mickey, John, Laura, Patti  in charge.  They have a monthly DJ dance either at The Lafayette Club or Normal Community Activity Center.  Check out their website for their schedule.  DJ BRAD usually sets up what songs he's playing to make sure all types of partner dancing is done.  But that doesn't mean you still can't do hug n waddles or freestyle or line dancing.  The group learned that in order to be the mix of DUKE'S SINGLES DANCE and CATHY'S MILLER PARK BALLROOM DANCE (both dances are dead),  that they would have to allow ALL types and styles of dancing to keep the crowd numbers up to pay the rent.  That means more fun for EVERYONE.  I've never seen them throw anyone out for doing THE ELECTRIC SLIDE to their swing song... so try it out.  Their next dance is Sept 21 at the Normal Comm Activity Center.  Their weekly class/dance starts up Sept 10 with a special quest star WCS teacher... see their website.
Hopefully a big huge HALLOWEEN dance will be Oct. 12 at the Normal location.

My friends,  ISU JAZZ ENSEMBLES 1 & 2 will hopefully have a dance this fall,  but we're not sure when.  I'll keep you posted.

Lots more info coming.  I'll start posting all the lists I get from Sambra,  Jan,  Susan... and join MEET-UP Central Illinois Dance Group (or something like that) .  We post everything we can.
Til then... it's a Sunday night and I'm with 4 adorable dogs who need a potty break.
KEEP DANCING Y'ALL....

dance updates for Aug. 2012



WOW WOW WOW... HOW LONG HAS IT BEEN????

Have you been good and out there dancing all over the place?

I pretty much dance only at Mackinaw Vineyards... and they still have bands thru Sept.. The last 2 bands have brought in soooo many people it was hard to dance. But I think that will change...

By the way... what happened to summer weather???



Have you kept up with Ms. Edie's building getting sold and her dances cancelled (or are they?) Or that DOUBLE TROUBLE is now JUST TROUBLE.. just kidding. So many of us went to Blm EAGLES CLUB to say bye bye to Steve... but MARK carries on the torch... so keep dancing the first and third Fridays at that club.

And then about 120 singles/single couple attended the first ITOO HALL SPONSORED SINGLES DANCE in Peoria... and another dance is scheduled....

Lots of stuff and always more out there thru MEET-UP groups or FACEBOOK or www.DancingDates.com
And then about 120 singles/single couple attended the first ITOO HALL SPONSORED SINGLES DANCE in Peoria... and another dance is scheduled....

Most of us did NOT renew our MOOSE LODGE memberships at Blm location.  Duke's dances were becoming mostly country and line dancers were taking up the floor.. so many stopped going... and soooo we were told Duke's dances would be cancelled... so we didn't renew... we're waiting to hear if he's picked up another location.




Lots of stuff and always more out there thru MEET-UP groups or FACEBOOK or www.DancingDates.com

I've been busy on Facebook trying to rescue dogs and cats.
Then there's trying to save HARVEST MOON DRIVE-IN THEATER in Gibson City. They need to raise a TON OF MONEY so they can upgrade.
Big fundraising event Sept 7-9th with bands and movies and food...
a 1967 Mustang will be given away!!!

Check them out at their website, FACEBOOK or 815-268-4000

Then I got involved helping the OLDE ENGLISH FAIRE at WILDLIFE PRAIRIE STATE PARK with their 2013 event. Hopefully, Margie and I can get tons of you excited to join us and Mickey and getting this event's attendance numbers UP.. they'll have KNIGHTS OF VALOUR from Disc Channel there again...

More more later ...

but until then...
