Last week we wrapped up another month of series, and now is the perfect time to practice. That’s right, it’s time for another Clinic:

Blues Clinic (7:30-9)
We gather as many instructors as we can for 1.5 hours of 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. There is also a long beginner lesson running throughout, making the Clinic perfect for introducing newcomers to Blues Dancing.

To keep you feeling the Blues all night we have Devona Cartier and special guest Rachel Jordan from Austin, TX behind the DJ booth.

If you registered for an entire series (beginner or intermediate), the Clinic is included in the price. As always, the Clinic is $5, and the dance an additional $5.

The March series have concluded, so it’s time for a Blues Clinic! This will give all the series students a chance to really get focused attention on what they learned.

During Blues Clinics we gather as many instructors as we can for 1.5 hours of 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. There is also a long beginner lesson running throughout, making the Clinic perfect for introducing newcomers to Blues Dancing.

And for your Blues enjoyment, we have Stephen York and Alex Abdoulaev behind the DJ booth.

If you registered for an entire series (beginner or intermediate), the Clinic is included in the price. As always, the Clinic is $5, and the dance an additional $5.
