Thursday, July 13

We’re back to our regular schedule this week, but the awesome classes remain:
Competition Series (7:30-8:30)
with Joey Science & Kelly Pavao
A hush falls over the crowd and you and your partner step out onto the open floor. Exciting? Terrifying? Both? We’ll break down the in’s and out’s, the up’s and down’s, and the do’s and dont’s of competing. We’ll discuss practicing, prelims, finals, and spotlights in both a strictly and a mix-and-match competition setting. You’ll also get our experienced perspective from both sides of the clipboard. (No partner necessary.)
Blues Basics: Struttin’ (8:30-9:30)
with Julie Brown & Zach Brass
This weekly drop-in class is designed for new-to-blues dancers or anyone wanting to focus on the fundamentals. No experience or partner required! This month, the classes will cover the basics & variations for struttin’. Struttin’ is a dance originally from Memphis, danced all or mostly in close embrace, with cool footwork and occasional turns. It’s a comfy and relaxing way to dance to mid-to-up-tempo guitar blues styles!
Steve York and Amy Blank will be behind the DJ booth to whet your Blues appetite.
As always, the lesson is $5, and the dance an additional $5.
