We’ve got one final DJ battle for all you lovely people! But first we wrap up another set of classes:

Blues at the Savoy (7:30-8:30)
with Jenn Martinez and Forrest Rogers-Marcovitz
Come dance drapey, draggy, Ballroomin’ blues. This month we will focus on the slower, jazzier side of blues music played in larger ballrooms like the Savoy in Harlem. Inspired by movement and dance from the time, we will work on ways to gracefully glide around the dance floor and use momentum for elegant, dynamic moves.

Blues Basics: Triple-Step & Improvisation (8:30-9:30)
with Jenn Martinez and Forrest Rogers-Marcovitz
This month, each week covers a different topic. On the first and third weeks, we’ll learn blues dances that use a triple-step rhythm, and work on traveling, chill turns, and side passes. For the second and fourth weeks, we’ll learn how to listen to the music, find your own basic, and build a beautiful dance to any style of blues music.

Amy Kucharik will be behind the DJ booth first to get us all grooving. Then in the battle arena will be Mike Legenthal vs. Steve York!

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