Solo Stylin’ (7:30-8:30)

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.
