Come join us for another evening of blues dancing. No experience or partner is necessary; just bring yourself and a willingness to dance.

8:00 – 9:00: Drop-In Blues Lesson
9:00 – 11:30: DJed Blues Music and Social Dancing

This Week’s Instructor: Quinn Casselberry and Valerie Plaus
Lesson: Body, How You Move???
Ever find yourself asking this question? Well, us too! (more often than we would like to admit). We want to help answer this question by emphasizing the use of intention in our movements when we dance. What do we mean by this? Come join us to find out more!
DJs: Megan Adair and Quinn Casselberry

We request a donation of $3 at the door to help cover venue and instructor costs. This helps us to bring in awesome out-of-town instructors and live music when we can.

Out-of-Towners: if you’re driving in for this and aren’t keen on driving back at midnight, post here or contact Daniel Miles and we’ll make sure we find housing for you.
