Popular Dance Magazine
"Dancing USA"
"The Comprehensive magazine about Dancing in the USA"
Has a New Owner (Michael Fitzmaurice), and a New Look
The April/May 2000 Issue contained wonderful article about this web site, a copy of which is printed below with the permission of the author:

Reprinted from the article "Our Favorite Websites" 
By Michael Fitzmaurice

Bob Urbon does not meet the standard profile of internet entrepreneur. Bob is not a twenty-something computer geek with no business experience and a hacking background. The proprietor of BallroomChicago.com is the former owner of the renowned studio, Chicago Dance,
and has taught dance for  thirty-seven years. At the start of this year, Bob and his wife, Penny, sold their studio to world champion dancers Gregory Day and Tommye Giacchino, and began to focus their efforts on their fledgling website.


    BallroomChicago.com provides information to dancers who are looking for what is going on in the local dance world. The information provided is very detailed and up-to-date. It includes information about local dance clubs, studios, ballrooms, and special events. BallroomChicago.com does not maintain a passive site waiting for visitors just to log on and explore the site. BallroomChicago.com sends out a regular stream of e-mails each week delivered to an ever-growing list of area dancers.

    For the social dancer, BallroomChicago.com makes finding a place to dance on any night of the week as simple as counting to the music. Every city should be so lucky to have an internet service like BallroomChicago.com.

We wish to thank Michael Fitzmaurice & Dancing USA for the wonderful article
