Last month we focused on solo movement. This month we have Devona Cartier and Joshua Boroff showing us how to work that 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.

To keep you dancing all night, we have Steve York and the return of Gui Cavalcanti behind the DJ booth.

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