SIN CITY BLUES: Class plan

January and February:

In blues dancing we never stop working on the FUNdamentals. You will be surprised by how good your dances become when you improve your posture, pulse, connection, rhythm and lag. That’s why the start of the year is the perfect time to refocus your energy on the techniques which really make blues dancing work. It’s also a great time to start level 1 for first time bluesers!


March is the month of Cs. Catches, close embrace and contra body will be our mantra for 4 weeks. You will start with catches redirecting your energy, creating flowing and effortless movement with your partner. You will then master the mysterious techniques of the magical close embrace, finally focusing on the venerated use of contra body, enabling you to cast an enchantment through your dancing.
