Special Event! I will be in Seattle on Saturday, March 21, and would like to host a cheap Drag Blues workshop. I'm competing for National Dance Teacher of the Year and will be attending an award ceremony Friday evening. I've already won Colorado and Midwest Dance Teacher of the Year! I thought since I was already there, we could setup an inexpensive workshop for those interested in improving their Drag Blues for Saturday, March 21, from 1-4:30. The workshop is all-levels. I'll be sure to differentiate up for any advance dancers by offering extensions, additional technical focus, or freely discussing points for teaching certain aspects. 1-2pm - The Essence of Drag Blues We'll cover important technical points to get everyone connected and maintain that connection while dancing across the room to music. 2:10-3:10pm - Drag Blues Moves and Dips Learn fun moves to incorporate into your social dancing. 3:10-4:10pm - That Drag Blues Flare Everyone loves Drag Blues because of the flexible and rhythmic aesthetic that its connection allows. This class will teach you the flares that make people want to learn Drag Blues. Imagine that one move that makes you think, "I want to do that!" $25 for all classes or $10/hour.
