Directions when we resume

in-person Dancing

Dancing is almost every Monday in Evanston, just north of Chicago, from 7:30pm to 10:30pm. There is no dancing on Memorial Day, Labor Day, and when Chirstmas Day and New Year's Day fall on a Monday. Our policy is that we dance as long as it's between 0 and 100 degrees. On occasion we may cancel due to severe winter snowstorms, so check for email alerts in case of severe weather. If you aren't on our email list, you can request to be added by contacting us via the email address below.

Bring a water bottle and dancing shoes. We do not have air conditioning.

We dance at Lake Street Church's MacLeish Hall, a 2100 square foot space with a lovely wood floor. Lake Street Church is located on the northwest corner of Lake Street and Chicago Avenue. MacLeish Hall is accessed from the courtyard on Chicago Ave.

There is free parking around Raymond Park, on Lake St, and on Sherman Ave (south of Lake).

There is meter parking until 9pm on Grove St.

There is parking under the Holiday Inn on Sherman Ave, but you need to pay the box and use a sticker.

Close to Dempster Street Purple Line and Davis Street Metra stops! Easy to get to via the Pace 213 and 250 buses.

The church courtyard faces Chicago Avenue, just north of Lake Street.

Enter through the doors in the corner of the courtyard (see picture on the right).

**Note: the door now is kept locked - push the doorbell on the sign or knock on the first window.

MacLeish Hall, where we dance, is to your left when you enter the door--very easy.
