  4. #4 North Shore Ballroom Dance Society

    (28 reviews)

    Barb G.

    Aleks is extremely passionate about the art of dance and it's very apparent that he loves to share his joy and knowledge with anyone who wants to learn. Wether you want to learn to be the hit of a nightclub, or you want to take it to a competition level, he will cater to what your needs and desires are, and he is capable of teaching all styles and levels. He makes you feel very comfortable no matter what level you're at and that was extremely important to me when searching for an instructor/coach. I feel a spark has been ignited within, I haven't had this much fun in years and I look forward to every class!!!

Thumbtack Spotlight

Chicago Country

I started Chicago Country back in 2002 as a central location for people to find country Western music and dance instruction.

Patrick Stamer offers private as well as group dance lessons. His clients love him and always have a grand time with him! Those who have recently met him all wished they had met him sooner.

There have been hundreds of classes, private lessons, corporate events, small and large parties over the years.

Patrick is no greenhorn to the dancing field. He has danced for eight seasons in pre-game performances for the Chicago Bulls. He was also a house instructor for a Chicago bar for three years, and did lessons here and there.

As far as strategy goes, I have one rule: the client and guests need to have a foot stompin' blast!
