Fluid Dance Roles
We’ll be playing with different ways of dancing and partnering, including embellishments, hijaks, and role switching techniques. Dancers will learn what to change when they switch from leading to following and back to keep the dance smooth and connected.
Every Monday night in the Mission, from 9:00-12:00, come have fun and dance with your friends to blues music and beyond. Check out our drop-in lessons at 8:00 (No partner or experience needed). Sliding Scales: $12-$16 lesson plus dance, $6-$10 dance only.
We love variety, so we partner dance to many styles of music, exploring different styles of movement to go with it. To blues music we dance blues dances. To other music we branch out and explore AltDancing, or find inspiration from other dance forms.
