Blues Classes

Classes every Wednesday evening

Blues dances are a family of dances originated in Afro-American communities at the beginning of the 20th century. Like the music, the dances are diverse and soulful.

Classes will be taught in English (German translation available).

Class Description

We start each class with solo blues movements and warm-up exercises before moving to the topic of the day. During class, we encourage you to switch roles, especially in Blues Basics so you will experience and learn from both views.

Class I – Blues Basics: In this class, we will focus on the fundamentals of different kinds of blues dancing, from the basic steps, to various forms of connections (open, close and closed embrace) and simple moves. Whether you have never danced blues before, or you want to drill down on your basics, you are welcome to join!

Class II – Blues Challenge: In this class, we will focus on more challenging and playful moves and rythms, drilling down on specific blues idioms. Good knowledge of blues basic steps, rhytms, connection, stretch and compression is required. Are you up for the challenge?

If you do not know which class to choose, please reach out to us!

For the intermediate dancers, we recommend you to join both classes and keep working on building a strong foundation for the more challenging moves.
