CBS (Channel 2) TV Promotes Square Dancing - Featuring Glenview Squares & Others (2/11/2014)

On Tuesday Feb 11, 24 dancers from Glenview Squares, Arlington Squares and elsewhere, plus caller Tom Davis appeared LIVE on CBS2-TV to promote square dancing to the Chicagoland area.  CBS2 early morning reporter Vince Gerasole and his photographer (Lou Kleinberg) came to the Glenview Park Center to find out about Square Dancing.  Tom Davis did a wonderful job of keeping the music and atmosphere lively, and Vince did a terrific job in helping us market square dancing and show how much fun it is!  While some of the participants may have felt a bit crazy for getting up way before the sun, everyone enjoyed themselves and their passion for square dancing was clearly on display.

Check out the four segments that appeared on the broadcast.  The first video features Janice Cha.  Tom Davis stars in the second, while Linda and Chris Kious are both featured in the third video.  You can also check out the cameo (15 seconds of fame) appearance of Richard Frankel in the 4th video.  Enjoy, we did!

Were working on getting the videos directly on our site.  In the interim we thought we’d provide links to the videos on the CBS Chicago website.
