Touch dancing is always so elegant and genteel. Young folks consider such things a blast from the past as they thump, bump and Harlem Shake their booties. But putting on lovely clothes, looking your partner in the eye and dancing together never goes out of style, which is why Willowbrook Ballroom has a full calendar. The venue's annual Swinger's Ball will feature the Alan Gresik Swing Shift Orchestra and the Head Honchos Blues Band.
Why go: Dancing is fun, even if you don't show up with a partner or a mask (it's a masquerade ball).
Reconsider: Touching strangers? Ick!
7 p.m. Saturday at Willowbrook Ballroom, 8900 Archer Ave., Willow Springs; $25; 708-839-1000, willowbrookballroom.com
