For our second intermediate series, Jenn Martinez and Shawn Hershey will challenge your partnering skills with Drag Blues:
Drag Blues (7:30-8:30)
Learn some stylish moves in Drag Blues! In this series, weâ€™ll be using close embrace, counter body movement and weight-sharing to create dips, leans, drags, and maybe even a few lifts. Weâ€™ll challenge your core strength and your control to add more dynamic movement into your dancing!
Note: To take this class, you must be at the intermediate level at New School Swing, or have a recommendation from a Blues Union instructor. To get a recommendation, ask an instructor at the Blues Clinic 🙂 More information can be sound on the Upcoming Classes page.
Blues Basics (8:30-9:00)
This will be a weekly class designed not only for the novice, but anyone wanting to focus on the fundamentals of Blues dancing. It will provide enough vocabulary to have fun on the dance floor, as well the opportunity to hone and polish the core techniques behind the dance.
Jonathan Pechon and John Brooks will be behind the DJ booth to whet your Blues appetite.
As always, the lesson is $5 and the dance is an additional $5.
