This month we’re celebrating Black History Month! All profits from the month will be donated to Black Lives Matter Cambridge. Join us as we kick off with:
All Levels Sampler on Blues History & Culture (7:30-8:30)
with Mike Legenthal
This month, instead of the Intermediate+ class, we’re offering classes open to all levels on various topics regarding blues culture, music, and history! Each week will be a different teacher & topic. The first installment will be a lecture on blues history and context.
Blues Basics: Ballroomin’ B (8:30-9:30)
with Julie Brown & Clayton Jennings
This weekly drop-in class is designed for new-to-blues dancers or anyone wanting to focus on the fundamentals. No experience or partner required! This month, we’ll focus on Ballroomin’, a sub-style of blues dances that were danced in ballrooms to jazz-blues. The first 2 weeks, we’ll work on close embrace and some cool moves, while learning Savoy Walk. The last 2 weeks, we’ll work on our close embrace connection and lag, through Ballroom-style Slow Drag.
As always, the lesson is $5 and the dance an additional $5. Donations will also be welcome.
