Tuesday Night Blues with Jess & Greg

  • The Newsroom 5-11 Leith Street Edinburgh, Scotland, EH1 3BG United Kingdom (map)

7:00 - 8:00pm

Foundations Class: Connection & Posture

Regardless of whether we're solo dancing or dancing with a partner, we always need to have an earth-centric posture and be connected to the ground, the music and ourselves when blues dancing. When dancing connected to a partner, having that partnership be comfortable as well as functional is essential to maximising everyone's enjoyment.

This Tuesday we'll get into a nice posture and then use that to make our close embrace (torso to torso) connection feel extra clear and lovely. As always, complete beginners welcome and no partner necessary.

8:00 - 9:00PM

Improvers+ Class: Hips, Hips, Hooray!

During the Improvers+ class we’ll work on movements we typically think of as "hip movements". We’ll focus on some specific blues idiom dances and movements: mess around, four corners and grind.

Prerequisites: None but be prepared for the pace to be faster than that of the Foundations class.

9:00 - 11:00PM
