Learn To Dance In A Day – Solo Blues

Perfect for anyone who loves Blues music, regardless of dance experience, this workshop will help you have fun with the music, be confident and creative on the dance floor, and enhance your partner dancing.
Blues and jazz dance share many of the same roots, so this workshop is relevant to anyone with an interest in vernacular jazz.
Our experienced blues teacher will take you through the fundamentals of solo blues movement and technique, drawing inspiration from clips of vintage blues dancing. We’ll practice chaining moves together, and improvising your own combinations. Build up your confidence to dance solo blues socially or in jams!

WHAT TO EXPECT

Our Dance in a Day workshop will teach you some introductory moves and technique that will allow you to build your confidence and take your dancing to the social floor.

 

WHAT TO BRING

Comfortable shoes (most swing dancers don’t wear heels), water bottle, snacks, mints, deodorant, spare t-shirt, small towel, band aids – swing dancing is exercise, and you may well break a sweat, so be prepared.

 

No partner required

This is solo dancing, so we won’t be dancing with partners – but we’ll all be sharing the same fun learning experience, so you’ll meet some new people and learn some new moves.
