No dance experience necessary; no partner necessary!! This is a great class to get started with partnered swing dancing and social dancing in general! During this lesson series, students will develop the basics of the Blues dance in its two main genres: the rhythmic, party-dance "Juke-Joint" style; and its smoother counterpart, "Ballroom" style. Fundamental concepts such as posture, pulse, and partnership will be addressed, followed by featured stylistic elements such as turns, lunges, footwork patterns, and jukin' grooves and history of the dance. Attention will also be paid to concepts such as partner connection, dance-as-conversation, and musicality. With blues music being a predecessor and major influence to much of the popular music of the last 60 years, you will find yourself able to apply the skills learned in this series to dancing far beyond the floor at Hepcats!  Due to the nature of partner dancing which puts you in close proximity to other people, we kindly ask that you wear a high quality mask to class to prevent the spread of COVID-19 or other illnesses.
