This week at Blues Union

Thursday, February 23

We’ve had silliness, dynamic dancing, and snow this month, and now it’s time for:

Blues Clinic (7:30-9:30)
The Blues Clinic is an opportunity to work one-on-one with our Blues Union 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 8:30-9:00, we have our Blues Basics class as usual, while the clinic continues in the rest of the room.

Steve York and Joey Science will be behind the DJ booth to whet your Blues appetite.

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

Let’s try this again! This week Forrest Rogers-Marcovitz and Jenn Martinez will actually continue to combine dramatic dancing and silliness in:

Whee, Zoom, Boing! (7:30-8:30)
Interested in adding dynamic and exciting movement into your dance, but don’t want to be too serious? This series will explore moves and techniques around partner momentum, fluid traveling, and axis sharing from a goofball perspective.

Blues Basics + Beginner Clinic (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 class includes the beginner clinic, where you can work on your dancing one-on-one with instructors and advanced dancers. This month it will be taught by Joey Science and Sarah Elise.

Julie Brown and Amy Blank will be behind the DJ booth to get your Blues groove on.

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

Closed on Thursday, February 9

Update: Due to the weather and the city of Somerville declaring a snow emergency, Blues Union will be closed on February 9.
