In the first program on Wednesday, Jan. 15, at 1:30 p.m., Alex and Margaret Arteaga will demonstrate Latin and Ballroom dancing.
In the second program on Friday, Jan. 31, at 1:30 p.m., John Boda will recall the career of Irving Berlin.
There is no charge for either event but reservations are required.
The Arteagas, who have been dancing together for 18 years, have competed around the country and enjoy performing and sharing the fun of dancing with others. They also teach Latin and Ballroom styles of dance and Alex helped pioneer the initial “Having a Ball” program in Chicago.
As part of Boda’s Songwriter Showcase series, he will present Irving Berlin’s life and talent through a combination of pictures, stories, information and live music. The afternoon will include such Berlin favorites as Cheek to Cheek, Alexander’s Ragtime Band, Always, and White Christmas.
For further information or reservations—which are required four days before each event—call 847-825-1161, ext. 129. Light refreshments will be served.
