This week we have more vintage Blues awesomeness from Joshua Boroff and Devona Cartier:
Slow Drag (7:30-8:30)
Slow Drag is by far the most useful of all the vintage blues dances; you can use it for any blues song, any tempo. The simplicity of the basic step allows you to focus on body movement and connection in class, and musicality and improvisation â€¦out on the dance floor. We will also be teaching a number of moves to round out your vocabulary and make any dance a fun time! Like lindy hop, blues dance originated and evolved from African rhythms and movements, though some of the particulars of frame, rhythm, and connection can be different.
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, theyâ€™ll be ready for the Series classes.
Serving up some damn fine Blues will be Chris Mayer and Steve York behind the DJ booth.
As always, the lesson is $5 and the dance is an additional $5.
