Event Details

Have you ever wanted to really move your body to blues music, but thought, what the hell do you do to it? Now here's your opportunity!

Make a note in your diaries and join us for our Nothing but the Blues 6 weeks dance course starting on 8th June. We're starting from scratch to teach you all the basics and some nice twirly impressive little bits to schmooze you and get you in the mood for moving to blues music.

Our music ranges from old style jazz to 1920's blues to electric blues and beyond into modern day renditions of THE most beautiful, layered, evocative style of music that has you just irresistibly moving to the groove. Here's a little example from just one artist, the inimitable Catherine Russell https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rxIWXCmO5nE

If you have no partner in life, nor dance partner, you are especially welcome to come and join us to build up your social life and give yourself a break from the stresses of working for the boss! Though blues dancing is a partner dance, our classes are truly inclusive as everyone can get to dance with everyone in this most beautiful of genres.

 

============================

 

Here's some of the benefits of coming along to our course:

  • You'll learn week by week how to weave different moves together

  • Each week you will be revising the moves you did the week before so you have something to build on

  • Each week you will receive a video recap so you can practice at home without forgetting a move

  • You'll learn how to listen to the music and interpret a dance connection with your partner

  • You'll gain a much deeper body confidence as you learn to dance close and slow, as well as solo and funky

  • It'll give you something to get yourself off the sofa for every week and dance yourself fit!

  • You'll learn about body leads, follow interpretation and so much more.

  • You'll feel a sense of satisfaction at the end of it

  • And at the end, we are having an mixed genre and expressive 1920's style party so that you can practice all your lovely blues in your own eclectic way! Here's your event link on facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/741490256022484/

AND if you're already a dancer:

  • It'll expand all your other dance styles.

=============================

 

 

Here's what others said about our last class!

 

 

"I enjoyed most learning a new style of dance without feeling uncomfortable in a
nice friendly group."

"I loved the time at the end to practice what we had learned and I love the music!"

"I loved the class rotation so that I could get to practice with the whole class."

"The videos were so helpful. In fact, invaluable to home practice"

 

 

============================

 

 

Class will start at 8pm till 9.30pm. Then from 9.30 till 11pm there is an open social where you can practice all your moves and potentially dance with some of our lovely graduates from past classes. These practice sessions cost £5 for graduates.

So, get your dancing shoes on and get ready to groove! Your investment for this 6 week course, including the social session, is just £49 so make sure you grab your place quickly as places are limited.

Places are balanced by role ie: lead and follow and not gender. Blues is very flexible so some of you might enjoy coming in as a lead and in the social bit, alternating between lead and follow. Find us on www.facebook.com/groups/allaboutblues

Organiser

Jenny Lynn

Jenny is a lifelong dancer of many different genres of dance including the 10 dances in ballroom and latin, salsa, modern jive and blues. As a personal development teacher, she has incorporated movement and bodywork into her workshops realising the value of using the body to create shifts of personal perspective and to resolve many mental, emotional, spiritual and even physical disturbances. In her journey of dancing the blues, she has discovered a fantastically natural and fun way of clearing our fears of intimacy and learning how to celebrate being alive. Jenny brings a blend of fun and passion to her blues dance workshops, inspiring dancers to feel the music, interpret in their own unique ways what that sound looks like, and to throw off the shackles of fixed routines and dancers block.
