We’ve wrapped up another series, so it’s Clinic time:

Blues Clinic (7:30-9)
During Blues Clinics we gather as many instructors as we can for personalized instruction. Students dance with instructors and get individual feedback on their dancing. Music plays continuously in the background, and students are encouraged to social dance and give each other feedback while not dancing with instructors.

For the first half of the Clinic the instructors will focus on working with the intermediate and advanced dancers. For the second half, they will focus on helping beginners. But no matter your level, you’re still welcome to approach a teacher at any time during the Blues Clinic to get help and feedback. It’s also a great time to talk the instructors about taking the intermediate level classes.

Mike Legett and Steve York will be behind the DJ booth to scratch your Blues itch.

As always, the Clinic is $5 and the dance an additional $5.

This week we have more cross-over awesomeness from Mike Legett and Dan Rosenthal:

Lindy Hop for Blues Dancers (7:30-8:30)
Lindy and Blues were not historically two separate, unrelated dance forms, though it may seem so at first glance. This month we’ll look at the similarities between Lindy and Blues. Over the course of the series you will learn how to incorporate elements and techniques from both dances, learn some new moves, and become even more awesome. It is STRONGLY encouraged that you plan on coming to every class, so that we can build on material every time.

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 found on our 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.

Kevin Sihlanick and Jonathan Pechon will be behind the DJ booth to scratch your Blues itch.

As always, the lesson is $5 and the dance is an additional $5.
