Midwestern folk dance festivals?

Can anyone suggest folk dance festivals held in the Midwest that feature great instructors and lots of opportunity for dancing? I know that many years ago there used to be a folk dance festival at the University of Chicago that I liked. I've heard there's one in Madison, Wisconsin. Does Chicago still have theirs, and if so, where can I find info? Where can I look to find info on Madison's? Does anybody know of anything in St. Louis, Kansas City, Minnesota, or eastern Nebraska? Or others in Illinois and Wisconsin?

Dodgeville Wisconsin holds a Swiss folk dance festival annually about the end of July. Sorry, I do not have further information.
