We featured several ways to integrate dancing skill sets this month. Come practice with us during our:

Blues Clinic (7:30-9:30)
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! From 8:30-9:30, we have our Blues Basics class as usual, while the clinic continues in the rest of the room.

Ruth Evelyn and Joey Science will be behind the DJ booth for your dancing pleasure.

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

And we’re back! There’s one more round of ways to integrate the skills of leading, following, and dancing expressively, with both Ruth Evelyn and Mike Grosser:

Lead, Follow, and Dance at the Same Time (7:30-8:30)
We see many dancers alternate between leading/following and fully dancing. We will explore mental and physical techniques to maintain leading and following while dancing expressively. As dancers, we will focus on techniques for balancing individual voice and maintaining cohesion with our partner.

Blues Basics (8:30-9:30)
This weekly drop-in class is designed for new-to-blues dancers or anyone wanting to focus on the fundamentals. It will provide enough moves to have fun on the dance floor, as well the opportunity to hone and polish the core techniques behind the dance. Each week, we’ll cover something new, so you can come every week, or just drop in for a class or few. This month it will be taught by Ruth Evelyn and Mike Grosser.

Julie Brown and Paul Loschak will be behind the DJ booth to help get your Blues groove on.

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