This week we have Joy Arico traveling all the way from Rochester, NY to DJ a set and teach us some lessons! Without further ado, those lessons are:
Scattering JOY (Intermediate, 7:30-8:15):
This lesson delves deeper into Blues connection. This is a topic rarely discussed that is very dear to my heart. As leads and follows, there is a tendency at every level to add unwanted noise to the dance. For follows, we will discuss and pra…ctice techniques to filter out the noise and dance the intended lead. Learning to do this first; will help you clearly add shines without interrupting your connection later. For leads,we will discuss and practice techniques that help add clarity. You know what you want, so should your follow.
Embracing Close Embrace (Beginner, 8:15-9:00)
In this class we will share the 3 main shapes of Blues connection, and practice movement in each. The focus will be on relaxation and moving with your partner in close embrace. After this lesson you should be able to have a fun night of dancing with strangers, and friends at Blues Union!
After the lessons, Tim Lewandowski will be joining Joy at the DJ booth to bring us a whole jarful of Blues.
As always, the dance is $5, and the lessons beforehand are $5.
