We’re back this month with a new schedule and a new series from Amanda Gruhl and Chris Mayer:
Blues Performance (7:30-8:30)
One of the best ways to push your dancing up a level is to work on challenging choreography. In this class youâ€™ll learn blues choreography targeted to intermediate students (though advanced dancers are welcome too). In February, Chris & Amanda will teach the cool moves and how to lead & follow them. In March, theyâ€™ll form it into a routine, which will be performed at a Blues Union dance! If you want to perform and take the March series, you must attend the February series as well. February will also be a good time to find a partner, since in March, youâ€™ll perform and take the whole series with a partner of your choice.
*Although perfect attendance is not required, it is strongly encouraged if you want to perform. If you miss a class in March it is your responsibility to figure out what you missed by asking peers, attending Blues Clinic, or scheduling a private lesson.
Blues Basics + Beginner Clinic (8:30-9:30)
This weekly drop-in class is designed for new-to-blues dancers or anyone wanting to focus on the fundamentals. It will provide enough moves to have fun on the dance floor, as well the opportunity to hone and polish the core techniques behind the dance. Each week, weâ€™ll cover something new, so you can come every week, or just drop in for a class or few. This class includes the beginner clinic, where you can work on your dancing one-on-one with instructors and advanced dancers. This month it will be taught by Julie Brown and Steve York.
Dan Rosenthal and Jonathan Pechon will be behind the DJ booth to whet your Blues appetite.
As always, the lesson is $5 and the dance is an additional $5.
