Fall is finally here and TNS is starting it off with a bang!
This month we are super excited to have ALL OF THE BLUES DANCING! Including a month long INT Ballroomin’ Blues Class at TNS in addition to the one day workshop coming up on Sep 19th!
And don’t forget, as always, if you pay for the entire month’s series the first Thursday of the month you’ll get a week free!
EXPLORING: CONTINUING BLUES (Ballroomin’)
Ballroomin’ blues began as jazz and swing music was being played in ballrooms like the Savoy Club and Cotton Clubs when the bands would play slower songs as well as the fast swing songs. Similar to the earlier techniques of Slow Drag, the dancers would dance to these slower songs slightly more upright, traveling across the floor, and with larger moves because they would have more space to dance in.
Come out all this month and explore modern Ballroomin’ blues! Then on Sep 19th don’t forget to join us for a one day CONTINUING BLUES class on Jookin Blues!!!
