Andi Hansen and Forrest Rogers-Marcovitz have even more ways to communicate ideas during a dance:

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 and Forrest Rogers-Marcovitz.

Amy Kucharik 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.
