Ballroom Dancing

Ballroom has again become one of the most popular forms of dance. While some people appreciate its nod to nostalgic times, many dance for other reasons: It’s a great way to stay in shape. It has been proven to promote to keep the mind active and healthy. Most importantly, knowing how to dance provides confidence and a source of social enjoyment on the dance floor.

Our new ballroom dancing classes are run by Ballroom Chicago and founder Bob Urbon who teaches styles from Rumba to East Coast Swing.

Classes are conducted in 5-week progressive sessions designed to be a casual, fun remedy to the dreaded Two-Left-Feet syndrome. Couples are suggested.

Summer LEADS 2019

The Summer LEADS Program is a great way to meet new people in Chicago and offers an introductory exploration of the Jewish community in a fun, relaxed social setting. Groups will be formed in several areas of the city and separated by age. LEADS participants will join together for a bar event following most sessions.

The cost to participate is $50, which includes 5 sessions, food, speakers and all program supplies. In addition to the program fee participants will also be asked to make a meaningful gift to the 2019 JUF Annual Campaign (minimum $36) and will have the opportunity to do so during the course of the program.

YLD and Silverstein Base Hillel are thrilled to present a new rabbi-led LEADS couples group this summer! This series is for couples seeking community and support as they navigate decisions about their Jewish lives and bring Jewish values into their relationship. The program aims to help couples discover opportunities for incorporating traditions from both partner's families into their home as they build their life together. If you would like to participate in the couples group, please indicate so at the bottom of your registration.
