Blues turns and movement class, Blues-Tango Fusion dance

If you've done a bit of Blues, here is a great chance to work on expanding your dance vocabulary with special visiting instructor Heriberto Perez, who has taught at national events such as Atomic Blues Fusion and the Fusion Exchange (as well as at Salsa Congress).

Afterwards, the Blues-Tango Fusion dance is a fun mix of music and styles - and you don't need to know any Tango, you can just take a break during the occasional Tango-only songs.

8:30pm Class 2 - $7: Turns and open movement for Blues
Feel great in close embrace, but not sure what to do in open? This class will teach you turns, styling and movement to make your blues dancing dynamic and visually appealing. You will learn new moves that will allow you to dance to faster music, when close embrace does not fit as well.

9:00 PM: Fusion Dance - $12 ($10 students)
Alternating sets of Tango, Blues, and Fusion
with DJs John Miller and Noah Nethero



Class: $7
Dance: $12
Both classes and dance: $22
No partner necessary


(7:30pm Class 1: Intro to Bachata!
Learn this sexy, latin, dance from the Dominican Republic! Bachata is often danced in a close embrace allowing you to seamlessly intertwine it with both Tango and Blues. No partner necessary.)

    Do I need to bring a partner? Can I wear flat shoes?

      Don't worry, no partner is required. They will rotate lead-follow pairs in the class, and at Blues dances the environment around asking to dance is very relaxed and even people who come as couples usually split up and dance mostly with others.

      The most important thing in shoes, is that they have something like a leather sole that will pivot on a wood floor. It also helps if they have a closed back or heel straps, so that they will stay on. Heels don't really matter in Blues, and only a moderate heel is necessary for Tango dancing (though it's still possible to get by without, and some ladies prefer it).

      I look forward to seeing everyone there! It will be a missed opportunity if we don't get too many from this group, but the class and dance should be well attended by other people coming for this longstanding event.
