We’ve got more fabulous dancing to practice in:

Extended Topics: Reps, Reps, Reps! (7:00-8:00)
with Julie Brown
There’s a saying that repetition is the mother of learning. This month, we’ll work on partnered patterns (like turns, side passes, or things that use momentum), and practice, practice, practice!

  • Leaders will work on building muscle memory for leading these patterns, and refining the techniques to lead them clearly & comfortably.
  • Followers will work on recognizing patterns, developing following skills to detect & follow variations, and refining the techniques to follow these patterns confidently & comfortably.

Level: This series will progress in level throughout the month–starting with basic patterns & fundamental techniques earlier in the month, and progressing towards complex patterns & next-level techniques later in the month.

Blues Basics: Ballroomin’ B (8:00-9:00)
with 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! Ballroomin’ is a sub-style of blues dances that were danced in ballrooms to jazz-blues. These dances have more partnered moves and often travel around the dance floor. This month, we’ll work on our close embrace connection and lag through Ballroom-style Slow Drag and work on turns & dips, as we learn Savoy Walk (also known as The Ballroom).

Ron Margolin and Paul Loschak will be behind the DJ booth to get your Blues groove on.

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