Blues Training! (7:30-8:30)
When learning to dance, we need to acquire knowledge and artistic ideas, and we need to acquire the physical skills to put these ideas into practice. Classically trained dancers spend hours upon hours practicing these physical skills as a group, until they have excellent muscle memory and control, but often we forget the value of focused practice as social dancers. In this series, we will practice the movements and physical skills of blues in a precise, controlled ways with a lot of repetition and feedback. Most work will be solo, with some connection drills as well.
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 Mike Legenthal and Zach Brass.
Julie Brown and Steve York will be behind the DJ booth to scratch your Blues itch.
As always, the lesson is $5 and the dance is an additional $5.
