This Month: Mambo/Salsa
Chevy Chase Country Club continues its monthly ballroom dance classes on Wednesday, September 22 with the sixth dance of the season: an evening of mambo and salsa in the Historic Grand Ballroom. The event features live music by the 10-piece Dick Elliot Orchestra and instructional dance lessons by Chicago legends Bob and Penny Urbon, followed by three hours of open dancing. For those who need a little liquid courage, a cash bar is available (prices range from $3 – $10). In celebration of all things Latin, drink specials include $5 margaritas and a $10 tequila flight featuring tastes of Patron Silver, Patron Reposado and Cuervo Gold.
The majestic Chevy Chase Country Club Grand Ballroom maintains its original integrity from the 1920s, and its 5,000-square-foot hardwood dance floor, stage area and state-of-the-art sound and lighting system provide the perfect setting for ballroom dancing. The Abbey, with its vaulted ceiling and vintage horseshoe-shaped bar, provides a cash bar and is a great spot for gathering and socializing over cocktails in between dances.
Instructors Bob and Penny Urbon, founders of www.ballroomchicago.com, have taught in the Chicago area for many years and made their names as the former owners of “Chicago Dance.” These days, Bob and Penny continue to do what they love best – teaching and sharing the joy of ballroom dancing with as many others as possible.
