Foundations: Dynamism and Momentum – Blues Partnering 101

Although everyone is responsible for moving their own body when blues dancing, we still create and utilise momentum. This often leads to very dynamic dancing, which is one way of responding to the complexities and tension in blues musics. We can make something dynamic, such as a turn, by speeding it up, slowing it down, etc.

African American dance styles place a high value on individual expression. Let's explore how that works in partnership!

As always, complete beginners welcome, no partner necessary.

8:00 - 9:00PM

Improvers+: Boogie Blues

Boogie's twisty corkscrewing movements perfectly complement the typical piano baselines found in boogie blues music. We'll see how we can use these largely feet-and-leg movements in partnership.Prerequisites: No specific prior experience necessary, but beginners will likely find this challenging.

9:00 - 11:00PM
