It’s a new week, and we’ve got more hard and fun stuff in store. It all starts with:

Tricks from Close Embrace (7:30-8:30)
with Joey Science
We’ll get a little adventurous in this class, with some tricks that can be performed from close embrace. We’ll start with tricks where you don’t have to leave close embrace, and then end with one that does!

Blues Basics: Jukin’ A (8:30-9:30)
with Jenn Martinez and Charlene Chow
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 Jukin’, a sub-style of blues dances that were danced in juke joints, house parties, and other small social spaces. Danced to guitar, harmonica, and piano-based blues, this style has greater independence between partners. This month at Union, we’ll work on getting great hip movement, working on the Fishtail, Mooch, Grind, Figure-8s, and Slow Drag.

Amy Kucharik and Joey Science will be behind the DJ booth to get your Blues groove on.

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