Boston Blend is this month, and Blues Union is here to help set the mood! This month we have an all levels, everyone is welcome series on another African-American dance style:

Intro to Chicago-Style Steppin’ (7:30-8:30)
Chicago-style Steppin’ is a smooth and chill partnered dance style descended from lindy hop, danced to R&B music. Guest instructor James Brown from the Red Velvet Steppers will teach an intro-to Steppin’ series all month, and on the last week, James & other local steppers will come help out at a Steppin’ clinic from 7:30-8:30.

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 Clayton Jennings.

Sarah Elise and Joey Science will be behind the DJ booth for your dancing pleasure.

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