First Bluesday with Jess & Greg

First Bluesday
It's First Bluesday! The first Tuesday of every month, instead of our usual classes, we have one two-part class. Jookin' (in-place rhythms in packed bars) and ballroomin' (travelling in big ballrooms) are the two main groupings of blues dances. In this First Bluesday we'll do both jookin' and ballroomin' dances and learn to connect with a partner in various positions, transitioning between them while expressing our own musicality.

As described above, in the first part (7-8pm) we'll learn some of the building blocks of blues dancing and in the second part (8-9pm) we'll combine and apply them in new ways. If you're new or rusty, doing both hours is perfect for easing you into social dancing (you can do just the first hour if you prefer). If you're a more experienced dancer, First Bluesdays are great for meeting enthusiastic new dancers and honing your skills (you can optionally join us for just the second hour).

Pricing is the same as usual (see below). If you're looking for that push to finally start blues dancing, this is it!

£10/£8 for both hours + social dance
£6/£5 for one hour + social dance
Or use a Dance Pass Card for less than the price of a single hour
