This week Jenn Martinez will address performance and movement quality in:

Solo Blues Performance (7:30-8:30)
Level up your dancing with a fun and challenging solo blues choreography! This series will teach you some cool new solo blues moves, as well as help you explore your personal expression of those moves to music. During the month, we’ll learn choreography, form it into a group routine, and work on personal expression and performance. After the series, we’ll perform the piece at a Blues Union dance*!

*Performing is not mandatory, however, if you do want to perform, perfect attendance is strongly encouraged. If you want to perform but need to miss a class, it is your responsibility to learn what you missed.

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 Jenn Martinez and Naomi Choodnovskiy.

Plus, we have an extra special treat! Amy Kucharik and her brand new band Tiger Moan are going to give us live taste of what’s to come for Sweet Molasses Blues. Find out more about Amy at

And because we have live music, we’re going till midnight!

As always, the lesson is $5, and since there’s a band, the dance will be $10.
