Before each dance, there are two classes:
Intermediate+ (series class) | 7:30-8:30pm
This class is designed for dancers who’ve got a good handle on the basics and are excited to delve deep into blues technique, expression, and more advanced vocabulary. These classes serve students from intermediate up through advanced and masters.
To take the Intermediate+ series, you must have taken all 6 monthly themes in the Blues Union Basics class and/or at Bluesy Tuesy. The themes are Jukin’ A, Jukin’ B, Ballroomin’ A, Ballroomin’ B, Struttin’ & Improvisation, and Triple Steps & Improvisation. The themes are staggered between Blues Union & Bluesy Tuesy, so if you take both weekly classes concurrently, you can finish all the themes in as little as 3 months.
If you take an Intermediate+ class, you’re welcome to stay for the Blues Basics class afterwards, for free.
Blues Basics (drop-in class) | 8:30-9:30pm
This class is great for anyone who’s new to blues dancing (first 6 months to a year) or anyone who wants to re-focus on the fundamentals. There are 6 monthly themes to take (and retake!): Jukin’ A, Jukin’ B, Ballroomin’ A, Ballroomin’ B, Struttin’ & Improvisation, and Triple Steps & Improvisation.
