Blues Basics (8:30-9:30)

This month we worked on practicing for competitions, and now there’s even more time during:

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.

Joey Science and Jonathan Pechon will be behind the DJ booth to satisfy your Blues cravings.

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