Come to Blues Tonight!!

 
Once again, there will be blues dancing tonight from 9:30-11:30 in the AFC. If you have not yet been, now is the perfect time to show up, as what we will be teaching today has nothing to do with what we have covered in the past 2 weeks. So
 
9:30-10:30: Intro to Jukin’: Last week we covered ballroomin’, which is done primarily to slow jazz. This week, we are covering music that lies on the other end of the spectrum. Sharp, rhythmic, jukin’ blues is my personal favorite style of dance because of the freedom of expression given to both partners.
10:30-11:30: Social Dancing: Stay and dance for a while. This week, I’ll be playing mostly jukin’ music so that you can practice what you learn in class.
 
Come out and dance with me.
