The Mike Knauf Quartet has been delighting audiences for over 15 years. The quartet has performed for many dances, parties, events, and festivals. Knauf and his quartet members have performed nationally and internationally with some of the biggest names in music. The performers draw from a diverse repertoire of swing, Latin, and standards from some of America's finest composers for your dancing and listening pleasure.
Louie Stallone has been dancing since 1985 with contra, Cajun, swing, and contact improv — a post-modern dance form. He started teaching swing dancing in 1992 and added Cajun dancing in 1997. During the day you can find him teaching line dancing and tai chi for the Chicago Department on Aging. You can also find Stallone teaching Cajun and zydeco with the City of Chicago’s Summerdance Festival. He hopes to see you on the dance floor!
