Hi Dancers,

    Our subdivision is having a garage sale Fri., April 21 & Sat., April 22 until noon. Since I have a foot injury, I can no longer wear my dance shoes sizes 8-1/2 to 9. There is over a 20 year accumulation of many other items, too. We won’t have time to get everything out but if you are interested, give us a call, 847-639-8699 or email "" for a pre-sale for our students and friends.
