Come catch the final week of Devona Cartier and Joshua Boroff showing us how to work solo movement into a partnered frame:

Solo Moves in Partnered (Beginner Series, 7:30-8:30)
Using some solo blues vocabulary, we focus on how to dance together, to a wide variety of music and tempos, and how the feel of a song might influence things like rhythm and style. In addition to partnering skills we will incorporate “break-a-ways”, moves that can be done apart, or in open position. We will play lots of music and give you plenty of time to practice. Get comfortable moving your body in the blues aesthetic. I mean you have to move your body to move your partner’s right?

Beginner Crash Course (8:30-9:00)
This will be a weekly feature designed to introduce novices to Blues dancing. It will provide enough vocabulary to have fun on the dance floor. Plus, when students feel comfortable with this material, they’ll be ready for the Beginner Series classes.

Amy Kucharik and Julie Brown will be behind the DJ booth, ready to meet all of your Blues needs.

The Beginner Series class is $7 for students and $10 general admission, the Crash Course is $5, and as always, the dance is $5.
