Nothing says summer like a barbecue, and the folks at Fred Astaire in Burr Ridge are hosting one Tuesday night, where people can come out and watch the Chicago White Sox battle the Chicago Cubs in the Crosstown Classic.
The event will double as a guest party, teaching newcomers the basics of East Coast Swing. For those of you who want to burn off some of the barbecue, a ballroom dance workout also will be offered indoors.
"It gives people exposure to this environment, who don't normally come to a dance space," said Michael Micek, manager at Fred Astaire. "It's a fun, healthy sport, so come on out."
There is a $20 cover charge to attend the event, which starts at 6 p.m., but there is no charge for all current Fred Astaire students. Proceeds will go to benefit the Hinsdale Area Networking Group.
