It’s time once again for our monthly Clinic and some live music!

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.

This month the David Hayward Band will be making its Blues Union debut. They’ll be rocking a wide variety of both contemporary Blues and Blues-rock. For more information and to get a taste of their sound you can visit http://www.benjaminroadband.com/.

And since we have a band, we’ll be going till midnight.

As always with live music nights, the Clinic is $5 and the dance an additional $10.

Come catch the last week of awesomeness from guest instructors Mike Legett and Dan Rosenthal:

These are a Few of Our Favorite Things (7:30-8:30)
Two Parts Moves, One Part Musicality, and a Dash of Technique, the Perfect Recipe for Blues. Using a few cool moves as a means of addressing important technique topics, we’ll explore ways to be musical both by acknowledging specific moments (small picture) and throughout a song (big picture) making you fun to dance with from start to finish. Topics may include close embrace or Drag Blues-inspired moves, stretchy-zoomy movement, phrasing, and creativity.

Beginner Crash Course (8:30-9:00)
This will be a weekly feature designed to introduce novices to Blues dancing. It will provide enough vocabulary to have fun on the dance floor. Plus, when students feel comfortable with this material, they’ll be ready for the Series classes.

Mike Legett and Steve York will be behind the DJ booth to keep you dancing all night.

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

A Class Change is Gonna Come

In our continuing efforts to improve our dancers and our scene, Blues Union is going to embark on an exciting new class change! Please check out our Upcoming Classes page for all the details.
