This month we have a new series on certain rhythms found in blues music:

Latin Rhythms in Blues (7:30-8:30)
with Jenn Martinez
Latin rhythms have often been woven into blues music, but what can we as blues dancers do with them? In this series we’ll delve into how to identify various Latin rhythms and how to adopt blues dances to them. We’ll also explore how to adopt Latin moves into the blues aesthetic.

Blues Basics (8:30-9:30)
Struttin’ and How to Build a Blues Dance
with Jenn Martinez
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! Classes focus on a different topic each week. This month, some weeks will cover the basics of struttin’. Other weeks will cover the fundamental structure of blues dances, so you can listen to the music and build your own.

Amy Blank and Steve York will be behind the DJ booth to whet your Blues appetite.

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