Dancing Over the City!


Buffalo Grove dance studio owner will perform a salsa 103 stories above ground.

Jesse DeSoto, owner of Fred Astaire Studio in Buffalo Grove, will attempt to set a world record Monday by dancing 1,353 feet over the city of Chicago.

With partner Jaana Lillemagi, he will perform a salsa on The Ledge at the Willis Tower's Skydeck. The Ledge features a series of glass bays that extend from the tower's 103th floor.

"We've performed in some pretty unusual settings, but never anything as wild as this," said DeSoto, an alum of "Dancing With the Stars."

The dance is scheduled for 2 p.m. Monday. DeSoto and Lillemagi plan to submit their feat to Guinness World Records.
