Popular Dance Magazine
"Dancing USA"
"The Comprehensive magazine about Dancing in the USA"
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 the year 2000, 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
