Partner Blues Fortsättning 2

Blues dances are a group of African American dance styles to Blues music, with the earliest styles developing in the late 1800's.

Class description:

During the course, we will cover two of the most popular styles of Blues partner dance, Juke Joint Blues and Ballroom Blues. We will focus strongly on musicality, improving connection in close embrace, closed and open, and digging deeper into the specific aesthetics of blues dance.
