Dear Friends, Students & Subscribers,

We have, after much consideration, and with  great regret, decided to retire from teaching Ballroom Dancing.

I will be 82 on March 29. It seems to be good time to stop while we are still able to dance and teach, rather
than waiting until we are no longer able.  Beginning in 1962 and till now, It has been a great ride!

We really appreciate being allowed to participate in your dancing lives

While we will no longer be conducting classes, we are not giving up our connection to the Ballroom Dance Community.
I will continue to maintain the Ballroom Chicago web site and will also keep sending out the weekly updates to all our subscribers.

We have missed and will miss seeing all of our students and friends.
Hopefully, we might see you on the dance floor sometime.

Sincerely

Bob & Penny Urbon
