Saturday
4 one-hour blues workshops at The Wilkins School from amazing instructors Brooke Filsinger and Jered Morin!

11:00-12:00
* Let’s Party! Vintage Juke Joint Moves *
Rhythms, turns, and partnering skills for a real Blues party: get in the groove with a collection of rhythmic variations and connection types. The perfect class for all-levels of Blues dancers - improve your essential techniques and be inspired too.

12:15-1:15
* Leverage and Tension *
We’ll explore how to "use" your partner to create new patterns with a great feeling. In Blues, the tension and stretch is very different from any other dance. What is that difference and how can we use it to add more musicality/styling?

1:15-2:45
LUNCH BREAK

2:45-3:45
* Modern Blues Club Dancing *
From the first Juke Joints to today's modern clubs, Blues has never needed to be "resurrected" because it has continued to be danced in Afro-American culture. We'll get you moving with a popular solo routine, "Show Me What You Got," that brings the hot rhythms, intensity, and power in a modern Blues Club style.

4:00-5:00
* Expanding the Close Position *
Want to be more comfortable and more creative when close to your partner? We’ll study proper connection technique and appropriate body positioning, plus cool moves & hot styling initiated by both Leads AND Follows!
