Absolute beginners

Before the monthly Saturday night party you can start your Blues dancing career at our Absolute Beginners workshops.

We start with a 30 minutes introduction of the basic steps and the lead/follow dynamic. This part is mainly for new people, but even if you have taken some classes, it is alway good to practice your basics over and over again. It’s the most important skill you will ever learn! We switch partners and roles, so you can become an allround social dancer.

Following that, we spend about an hour with a different theme every month. We close off the class with a half hour social dancing on beginner friendly Blues and Jazz music. This means songs with a clear beat and suitable speed, so that you can practice what you just have learned. Slowly the other party dancers will arrive and join you on the dance floor so you can try some moves with little more experienced dancers. You will notice that in our scene they are very willing to dance with you, like your teachers!

When the party officially starts, you will know enough steps and moves to dance all night. So don’t leave before the band has stopped, they are playing for you too!
