FDX: Blues Footwork Workshop

FDX: Blues Footwork Workshop


Whom is this class for?

This class is for WCS dancers who are experienced and confident with intermediate-level material. If you can do variants of pushes, passes, and whips and know WWTriple inside and out, then you're ready for this class. Not yet muscle memorized with these things? Hold off for now; this material will only curfuffle your brain!

Freak Your Feet!

Please join me Thursday, May 16th for an hour-long workshop devoted to blues footwork variations. Most of you know that your styling choices dancing to blues should be somewhat different from how you would dance to mid-tempo or slow contemporary. The hard part is actually learning what to do to make that blues stand out as "BLUES"!

The faster the music, the less we wish to travel, and the more we wish to use our feet to reflect what we hear in the music. In this class, we'll cover the basics (and some not-so-basic!) styling variations for those feet. Once you have these concepts in your feet, they work just as well for mid-temp to fast contemporary songs as they do blues!

7:30-8:30pm (stay for Westie Session!)

$10 for adults; $5 for students with active ID, FREE for juniors!
