Dance & All that Jazz Studio is closing in on its goal of getting Prospect Heights Mayor Nick Helmer to dance at its grand opening, but the deadline is soon.
Helmer said he will show his moves at 3 p.m. Saturday, July 27, if the studio gets 1,000 likes on its Facebook page, facebook.com/DanceandAllThatJazz. With 600 likes as of Tuesday, the new business is more than halfway there.
Owner Brittany Cederberg promises a live DJ, food, raffle, and break dancers at the celebration from 1 to 4 p.m., whether the mayor dances or not.
The modern dance studio at Wildbrook Commons, 844 N. Elmhurst Road, at the corner of Elmhurst and Palatine roads, features specially built wooden floors and an iPad login station.
Dance & All That Jazz provides classes for all ages in disciplines such as hip hop, jazz, ballet and tap. Aerobic classes also include Zumba, and soon there will be Pilates and yoga.
