We’ve got one more week of getting into the groove called::

Chicago Triple (7:30-8:30)
with Ruth Evelyn and Mike Grosser
Get down and settle into the groove with Chicago Triple. This style feels great over a wide range of tempos and is perfect for a lot of music that you hear from live blues bands. We’ll play with digging our feet into the floor for triples, and how to make the dance feel different from other triple-step dances. This class will also cover ways to preserve energy when dancing to more energetic songs.

Blues Basics: Ballroomin’ A (8:30-9:30)
with Ruth Evelyn and Mike Grosser
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 be learning some ballroomin’ blues! Ballroomin’ is a sub-style of blues dances that were danced in ballrooms across America. Danced to jazz-blues, these dances have more partnered moves and often travel around the dance floor. This month, we’ll work on our close embrace connection and leading & following skills, through learning One Step & Two Step for blues.

Grace DelGiudice and Paul Loschak will be behind the DJ booth to keep you dancing all night.

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

This week we’ve got an opportunity to geek out and more hip shaking fun with:

Blues Clinic (7:30-8:30)
The Clinic is an opportunity to work one-on-one with 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!

Blues Basics: Jukin’ A (8:30-9:30)
with Jenn Martinez and K. Faye Jones

Jukin’ is a sub-style of blues dances that were danced in juke joints, house parties, and other small social spaces. Danced to guitar, harmonica, and piano-based blues, this style has greater independence between partners. This month, we’ll work on getting great hip movement, working on the Fishtail, Mooch, Grind, Figure-8s, and Slow Drag.

Joey Science and Paul Loschak will be behind the DJ booth to get your Blues groove on.
