Practice with your peers and instructors
On the last Thursday of the month, we hold a Blues Clinic from 7:30-9:30pm (Blues Basics class still happens too).
What is Blues Clinic?
The Blues Clinic is an opportunity to work one-on-one with ourÂ Blues Union instructorsÂ and to work withÂ 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!
What if I’m a beginner?
From 8:30-9:15, we have our Blues Basics class as usual, while the clinic continues in the rest of the room. After that, instructors and advanced dancers focus specifically on helping beginners, so you’ll get plenty of help (and get to meet people too!).
What about the Beginner Clinic every week?
The Blues Basics class every week also includes a beginner clinic starting at 9:15pm, where beginners get to work on class material with instructors and other experienced dancers. It’s a great way for beginners to get better faster and meet people when they’re new to blues dancing.
How can I help?
If you feel like you’ve got the basics down and want to help out, feel free to join us as a helper for the beginner clinic every week from 9:15-9:30pm. We recommend getting there a little early, to hear what the Blues Basics class covered that week.
For the monthly blues clinic, we highly encourage everyone to work with instructors, peers, and dancers of all levels. If you’re interested in being an official helper, contact Jenn or Julie.
