Class 1: Rev Your Engine
This class will put a little high octane gas in your car and get you ready for a full day of blues dancing! We will take a thoughtful & creative approach to your solo movement & blues aesthetic, and build vocabulary so you can let loose in next fast blues class.
Class 2: Pedal To The Metal
You are a well-oiled machine, destined for glory on the dance floor. Not only can you dance slow and gritty, but when a fast song comes on you can shift into gear and show them who’s boss! Dust off your fast blues skills with this class on rhythm & connection styles.
Class 3: Build Your Partnering Vocabulary
Build the skills necessary for beautiful & dynamic partnering. We’ll explore our full range of balance, leverage, and compression that will make communicating on the dance floor a breeze. These techniques help you to first ‘pronunciate’ your movements clearly, then we combine them into syllables and words, ultimately expanding your dance vocabulary.
Class 4: In, To, And, Or, The
Transitions, transitions, transitions! By now, you have some pretty sophisticated vocabulary in your arsenal from the previous class. It’s time to start expressing yourself in full sentences & maybe even paragraphs. We’ll talk in depth about how to fit moves together for ultimate blues fluency.
