Lawrence Welk eat your heart out! Chevy Chase Country Club is continuing their monthly ballroom dance classes in the original 1920s Grand Ballroom this July 20th. The event will feature live music by the 10-piece Dick Elliot Orchestra and instructional dance lessons by Chicago legends Bob and Penny Urbon, followed by three hours of open dancing for thirteen dollars per person. For those who need a little liquid courage, a cash bar is available in the same room. [Racked Inbox]
