Thursday, April 12

Come join us as Joshua Boroff and Devona Cartier bring us one of the major styles of Blues dance:

Jookin’ (7:30-8:30)
The music is hot. Rhythmic. Guitars and harmonicas are flyin’. What are you gonna do? Get close? Show off? Dig down. Shake it. How do you dance to the music of the Jook Joint, the rent party? Memphis? Beale Street? Chicago? Well, Mooche, Grind, Shake and Bake, Fishtail, and the like. That’s it, move those hips.

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 Series classes.

Julie Brown and Steve York will be behind the DJ booth to satisfy your Blues cravings.

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