Hey, folks! Â Our month of guest instructors continues with Dan Repsch, whom you may recall from the competitions at Sweet Molasses Blues. Â He’s here this week to bring us some out of town goodness.
Shapes, Shifts, and Safety belts
This is a lesson designed to acquaint beginners with the blues. Â Weâ€™ll start with moving your own body, then introduce a partner and learn the basic shapes that blues dancers create in almost every dance. Â If you donâ€™t have any experience dancing youâ€™ll be prepared for a social dance by the end of the class and if youâ€™ve been dancing for a while youâ€™ll come away with new ideas and some of the finer details of the fundamentals.
Putting Yourself Into Your Blues
This class uses a concrete structure to show how you can bring your personality out in your dancing. Â Weâ€™ll briefly discuss the emotions present in selected songs, but the majority of the class will be spent dancing simple yet impactful ideas. Â Iâ€™ll provide tools Iâ€™ve developed through both social dancing and numerous classes, and also look to the students for some of their interpretations so they can define their own dancing style
