Come one, come all, because this month we have a special series on a different style of African-American dance:
Intro to Chicago-Style Steppinâ€™ (7:30-8:30)
Chicago-style Steppinâ€™ is a smooth and chill partnered dance style descended from lindy hop, danced to R&B music. Guest instructor James Brown from the Red Velvet Steppers will teach an intro-to Steppinâ€™ series all month, and on the last week, James & other local steppers will come help out at a Steppinâ€™ clinic from 7:30-8:30.
Blues Basics + Beginner Clinic (8:30-9:30)
This weekly drop-in class is designed for new-to-blues dancers or anyone wanting to focus on the fundamentals. It will provide enough moves to have fun on the dance floor, as well the opportunity to hone and polish the core techniques behind the dance. Each week, weâ€™ll cover something new, so you can come every week, or just drop in for a class or few. This class includes the beginner clinic, where you can work on your dancing one-on-one with instructors and advanced dancers. This month it will be taught by Jenn Martinez and Clayton Jennings.
Amy Kucharik and Julie Brown will be behind the DJ booth to get your Blues groove on.
As always, the lesson is $5 and the dance is an additional $5.
