Workshop descriptions:

Foundations – close embrace

This workshop will introduce you to the connection most well know to the world of Blues dances, our dearest close embrace! By the end of it you will be able to comfortably dance in this position, do some smooth movin’ and enjoy the slower tunes while doing some social dancing =)

This workshop is suited for everyone that has never danced Blues, including dancers with experience in other dances & styles. It is also a good way of getting back into Blues dancing in you haven’t been doing it for a while, or for skill improvement.

Dancing to Ballroomin’ Blues

In this class we will be dancing to Blues Music that was played in Big Ballrooms, and by Big Bands! This means lot’s of space to move around the room, some jazz, and a hint of drama. Have you ever joined our Blues & Slowbal socials at Dizzy? Then you have certainly heard some Blues songs of the kind. Give it a listen in the link bellow!

To join this workshop we recommend some experience with dancing in close embrace. If you have never learned the Blues close embrace, join the Foundations close embrace to be able to join this one too.
