Come learn more about the Blues from Devona Cartier, Julie Brown, and Jonathan Pechon:
All about the Music (7:30-8:30)
From the Mississippi delta to the ballrooms of New York, blues music has a rich history and a variety of styles that gives us a lot to work with as dancers. Do you know about Piedmont, Texas blues, or the musical genres that led to blues? This series will delve into the roots of blues music, its many styles, the dances that grew up with the music styles, and how a deeper knowledge of the music can enrich our blues dancing.
This series will involve plenty of dancing but will also be excellent DJ training, and will involve some time for DJs to practice DJing. For more details, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 Andrew Selzer.
Dan Leganthal and Steve York will be behind the DJ booth to whet your Blues appetite.
As always, the lesson is $5 and the dance is an additional $5.
