This month we are proud to bring in some guest instructors – Ruth Hoffman and Mike Grosser:
Tango-Inspired Blues (7:30-8:30)
Infuse your ballroomin’ blues with techniques and vocabulary adapted from Argentine Tango. Lead and follow precise weight changes, create elegant lines with leg extensions, and add Boleos (kicky things) to your repertoire. Delve into circular movements, make your close embrace comfy and squishy, and more.
Note: To take this class, you must be at the intermediate level at New School Swing, or have a recommendation from a Blues Union instructor. To get a recommendation, ask an instructor at the Blues Clinic 🙂 More information can be found on our Upcoming Classes page.
Blues Basics (8:30-9:00)
This will be a weekly class designed not only for the novice, but anyone wanting to focus on the fundamentals of Blues dancing. It will provide enough vocabulary to have fun on the dance floor, as well the opportunity to hone and polish the core techniques behind the dance.
As always, the lesson is $5 and the dance is an additional $5.
