This month we have the return of Amanda Gruhl Mayer and Chris Mayer! They’ll help us make our dancing better, and more fun, using physics:

Objects in Motion (7:30-8:30)
Dancers obey the laws of physics – a follow in motion stays in motion until acted upon by an outside lead. We’ll review the basics of momentum, tension, and compression and help you apply them in some fun and flashy new ways!

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 Chris Mayer and Margaret Ptak.

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