September 2014 Week 5

Community Meeting

From 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm, we will be hosting a Community Meeting instead of holding a series lesson. We want you to provide feedback on what you’d like to see in the scene and how we can do it.

Intermediate/Advanced Workshop: Ballroomin Blues w/ Rachel Stirling

Class Description:
Some blues dances were done in tiny little juke joints, and some were done in ballrooms to sultry jazz tunes. On September 30th at Tuesday Blues, The Fried Bananas are going to give you a taste of the latter, and Rachel Stirling will show you how to dance to it. First, she’ll get you maneuvering the floor and using contra-body motion, then she’ll step it up with some skip steps, lunges, and leg flicks.

Please note: This is a partnered workshop. In order to maintain the pace of this class, please bring your own partner or a group to work with; we will not be rotating.

Cost: $10
Class will be held upstairs at the Bossanova Ballroom.

September 2014 Week 4

Series Lesson: w/ Ally Yancey

Breaking Out of the “Dance Rut”: Aesthetics, Musicality, Variation, and Brain Space
Many of us have experienced the distressing sensation that our dancing “isn’t going anywhere.” Whether it’s because it seems like we aren’t getting better, aren’t learning, aren’t inspired, or are just no longer having fun, hitting this proverbial plateau sucks. This series will focus on tools and techniques that can help reinvigorate your relationship with dance, encourage different angles from which to approach dance, and perhaps even prevent feeling stuck in the first place. We will consider the physical—flourishes, stylization, musicality, and movement variation—as well as the mental—attitude, risk taking, and motivation.

See the Facebook event for more details.
