Chicago's Original Country Dance, hosted by David Boyer, will be celebrating its roots and 30 years of country dance parties across Chicago with a special dance party beginning at 4 pm on Sunday, August 20, at The Call, 1547 W. Bryn Mawr Ave.

Alcala's Western Wear, 1733 W. Chicago Ave., will offer door prizes ranging from T-shirts to a $50 gift certificate; a light buffet will be served. Admission to Chicago's Original Country Dance is free and open to all 21 and older.

It may seem like a whole other time, but thirty years ago this past May, David Boyer ( pictured at left ) hosted the very first "Texas 2-Stepping Night" at Carol's Speakeasy. Carol's was Chicago's largest gay dance club with legendary parties and DJs. Beginning in the late '70s, Carol's was packing them in every weekend.

Boyer remembers that about 30 guys were there that first night looking to learn to two-step. Every single guy stepped on the dance floor and by the night's end, Two-Stepping and country dancing were in Chicago to stay.

Whether you are an old fan of the dance or are looking for a new outlet for dancing and fun, all are welcome to come help celebrate 30 years of country dancing in Chicago LGBT community.
