Join us this week as we explore more in:

Extended Topics: Deep Dives (7:00-8:00)
with Shira Hoffman and Jenn Martinez
This month we’ll be digging in to specific topics that make Blues look and feel amazing! We hear terms like lag, stretch and being ‘grounded’, but what do those term really mean and how do we achieve them in our bodies? Get ready to get geeky and think about how our bodies move and feel when we dance.
Level: Advanced beginner to advanced

Blues Basics: Ballroomin’ A (8:00-9:00)
with Derrick Rice
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 ballroomin’ blues, danced to jazz-blues music. We’ll be working on one-step and two-step for blues, two stylish walking dances with close embrace, fun footwork patterns, and delightful turns.

Amy Kucharik and Joey Science will be behind the DJ booth to whet your Blues appetite.

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

Haven’t gotten enough spice yet this month? Well, we’ve got one more way to serve it up this month in:

Extended Topics: Drama! (7:00-8:00)
with Mike and Dan Legenthal
You know those songs that have that growly trombone, or the squeaky soprano sax… jazz-blues has so much potential for intensity and for statement. These classes are designed to be multi-level, so whether you’re an advanced-beginner or a 10-year-veteran, we’ll be offering you ways to make your dancing really suit those rises and falls of jazz-blues. This time, we’ll play with how you as an individual can bring drama to an otherwise normal partnership! What can *you* do to spice things up?
Level: Advanced beginner to masters

Blues Basics: Jukin’ A (8:00-9:00)
with Zach Brass 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. We’ll work on getting great hip movement, working on the Fishtail, Mooch, Grind, Figure-8s, and Slow Drag.

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

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