with Paul Loschak
Interested in hanging out and listening to blues music? Tonight, non-DJs and DJs alike will dive into fun musically-themed activities about how dancers hear music!
DJ interest or experience is *not* required! We’ll dance to individual songs and then combinations of songs with an ear towards the musicality and atmosphere that each song choice creates.
All are encouraged to bring dance shoes. Those interested in DJing are encouraged to also bring a device with music on it (something with a standard audio jack, also known as a 3.5mm plug) and a pair of headphones/earbuds.
7:15pm – Doors open / arrive, say hi, get shoes on
7:30-9:00pm – Class
9:00-10:00pm – Social dance – Any aspiring or experienced DJ is welcomed to play a mini set while everyone hangs out and dances. No structured activity.
Sliding scale $10-25, admission covers the whole night. No one turned away due to lack of funds.
