We have one more installment about all the things from Mike Legenthal and Forrest Rogers-Marcovitz:

PTED: Posture, Tone, Energy, Direction (7:30-8:30)
Or “How to lead and follow all the things!”
PTED–a means of describing partnered dance connection originally proposed by Joe Demers–is a way to use your body to have a dynamic, responsive, and versatile connection. The days of “too light” or “too heavy” will soon be over. Best of all, it’s useful not just in blues, but for lindy, balboa–all the things. All the things!

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 Mike Legenthal and Forrest Rogers-Marcovitz.

Julie Brown and Amy Kucharik will be behind the DJ booth to whet your Blues appetite.

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