This month we’ve been focusing on the music, and it’s time once again to Clinic:
 
Blues Clinic (7:30-9:30)
The Blues Clinic is an opportunity to work one-on-one with our Blues Union instructors and to work with your friends and peers. Music plays in the background as people work together, and the instructors move around the room, working with people one-on-one or in couples. When not working with instructors, people work with peers, dance with each other, try new things they’re working on, or try things the instructors have helped them with. You can work on material from that month’s series class, workshops you took recently, or anything you like! From 8:30-9:15, we have our Blues Basics class as usual, while the clinic continues in the rest of the room.
 
Joey Science and Joanthan Pechon will be behind the DJ booth for your Blues dancing pleasure.
 
As always, the Clinic is $5, and the dance an additional $5.
