The Dirty Water Lindy and Blues Exchange is upon us again. As usual, Blues Union will be co-hosting the opening night Swing and Blues Party! Please note the schedule and location changes below.

This month’s role-switching series will be wrapped up with an all levels class from Jenn Martinez and special guest Chris Mayer:

Role-Switching (All Levels, 8-9)
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.

Plus, to keep you on your feet till midnight, there will be fantastic DJs and live music! Jan Marie & the Mean Reds will be playing a set, while Dan Legenthal and Jonathan Pechon will be behind the DJ booth.

This will be taking place at the Crosby Whistle Stop, located at:
24 Roland St
Charlestown, MA 02129

The night is included if you’re registered for Dirty Water. The price at the door, with the lesson included, is $12 general, $10 students and seniors.
