We have an out of town instructor this month – Andi Hansen, from Grand Rapids, MI! Her focus is on creating a safe, comfortable dance where each partner feels confident in expressing themselves. Andi believes that everyone has something to add to the dance, and that nothing is quite like the creativity of playing with the music, your partner, or solo dancing with friends. More on Andi here:

Partner Conversation (7:30-8:30)
Come see Andi’s take on partner conversation! Topics will include how to create opportunities for your partner & encourage them to contribute to the dance, continuing the conversation & riffing off your partner, open leading vs closed leading, leading vs moving yourself independently, and exact following vs approximate following.

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 Andi Hansen.

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