Jookin’ Blues. The original get-down. Not so flashy, but oh-so-gritty.
Blues idiom dance (“blues dance” for short) can be separated into three categories: Solo, Ballroomin’, and Jookin’. In the October dance series, Erin Boeke Burke and Jonathan Henderson will cover Jookin’, the style of blues dance that focused on making the most of your dance count in limited space while maintaining the blues aesthetic. Learning Jookin’ Blues comes in handy whenever you want to dance in small spaces such as dive bars and house parties, because that was exactly how this style of dance was developed.
