Weekly dance events bring out dancing fun for all ages at the Great Lakes Swing Dance Club.

TV’s “Dancing with the Stars” has brought dancing out of the ballroom and into the mainstream of everyday American life.

 Some of the most popular styles of dancing in the U.S. include ballroom dances like the Foxtrot, Waltz, Tango, Rumba, Cha Cha, Salsa and Night Club 2 Step. Swing dances include the East Coast Swing, West Coast Swing, Hustle and Lindy.

 The Great Lakes Swing Dance Club celebrates all the fun and benefits of dancing by bringing dancers together weekly for dance lessons and an evening dance at the Flushing Rollhaven Center, located at 3464 Ann Dr., Flushing.

 Now celebrating its 25th year, the Great Lakes Swing Dance Club was founded in 1991, and quickly became the largest dance club in Michigan. Boasting 300 members, the club offers weekly dance lessons and evening dances, plus regular events throughout the year and participation in community events for those who are interested.

 Dancers include men and women who are college students and retirees, singles and married, from a variety of backgrounds. What they all have in common is a love for dancing.

 The Wednesday Evening Dance starts with a one-hour lesson from 6 to 7 p.m., professionally instructed on a specific dance style. Open dancing is from 7 to 10 p.m. for a variety of dance styles.

 The cost to attend is very reasonable and first-time visitors are free. For more information, visit www.glsdc or contact Leo Brennan at leojbrennan@yahoo.com.
