This week Julie Brown and Jenn Martinez are switching it up with momentum:

Role-Switching (7:30-8:30)
Come experience the other side of the looking glass! Learning the other dance role is not only fun (and ensures you can find a partner more often :), but it improves your dance skills all around.

Understanding both sides of the connection helps us listen better, speak more clearly, and understand our partner’s role, movement, and feeling, even in our primary dance role. In this class we’ll work on basic lead-follow skills, how to apply them to the other role, and how this helps improve your primary dance role. We’ll also learn some fun moves to “trade” the lead back and forth with a partner who also dances both roles.

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, we’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 Dan Legenthal and Jen Vannest.

Amy Kucharik and Julie Brown will be behind the DJ booth to satisfy your Blues cravings.

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