Fortnightly – Last call for Fortnightly Sign ups.

Last call for all 8th grade Fortnightly students!

As anticipated, the program is nearing capacity. Session 3 is full. Please rsvp now for Sessions 1,2,and 4. We are currently in the process of balancing our classes. Classes begin in January of 2017.

This is the last call for registration. Even if you think your student is reluctant, your 8th grader won’t want to miss this event. It turns out to be one of their highlights before heading to high school.

Invitations are available at all the middle school offices, at Cyndi Breslow’s house, 80 Waverly in Clarendon Hills (there is a basket on her front porch), or on line, at Please complete both the rsvp and the waiver.

Fortnightly is a traditional, local rite-of-passage and teaches general decorum and manners combined with the basics of dancing (waltz, salsa and swing) to eighth grade students from the Hinsdale Central High School feeder schools. It is organized by volunteers and staffed by professionals.

This is a wonderful opportunity that your children will remember and appreciate the rest of their lives. The program has accommodated over 250 Hinsdale area students, every year, since 1958.

The rsvp card and waiver can be downloaded from All area 8th grade boys and girls are invited to attend. Scholarships are available.
