We’ve wrapped up a joyful series, and now we’re featuring something new!

Blues Community Potluck (7:30-8:30)
In lieu of our Blues Clinic, we’ll be hosting a potluck. Everyone is welcome, even non-dancers, so bring your friends and loved ones! Let’s get to know each other, celebrate each other, and grow our community together. This will be a good opportunity to interact with dancers you don’t know as well, discuss your thoughts about our Boston area community, and just hang out and eat food with folks. Hope to see you there.

Feel free to bring your own food or food to share. If you bring food to share, please provide an ingredients list with your dish.

Blues Basics: Ballroomin’ B (8:30-9:30)
with Mike Legenthal and K. Faye Jones
This drop-in class is designed for new-to-blues dancers or anyone wanting to focus on the basics! No experience or partner required! This month focuses on Ballroomin’, a sub-style of blues dances that were danced in ballrooms across America. At Blues Union, we’ll work on our close embrace connection and lag through Ballroom-style Slow Drag, and turns & dips, as we learn Savoy Walk/The Ballroom.

Steve York and Mike Legenthal will be behind the DJ booth to keep your groove going all night.

There is no charge for the Community Potluck. As always, the lesson is $5 and the dance an additional $5.
