Union Foundations: March 24

This week, join online or in-person for a class, followed by open practice time for folks in-person.

Let’s explore another fun, relaxed way of learning to dance – learning on the social floor! Teachers Katrina Rogers (Denver) & Jenn Martinez (Boston) will talk about ways of learning on the social floor that are helpful and feel great, how that functions in each of their personal experiences in Black and other cultures’ social dance spaces, and then help us put some of these ideas into practice.

-7:30-8:30pm ET – Class (online & in-person)
-8:30-10:30pm ET – Open practice/social time

Sliding scale $5-15 online, $10-25 in-person – admission covers the whole night

As usual, if the price is a barrier, please reach out to BostonBluesUnion(at)gmail(dot)com and we can work something out.

We’re still rebuilding and re-envisioning, so this is still a Union Foundations event, and not an official reopening.
