Sara White – classes:

The Blues Effect

Drama…Passion…Joy…Bliss…The Blues room is the gateway to a wonderful dance experience full of connection and musicality – and the simple joy of a shared love for the dance. We want to give you the confidence to spend some time on the Blues room floor this weekend, so whether you are new to Modern Blues or you’ve been dancing Blues a while, Sara will help you explore the Blues core of connection, lead/follow and musicality.

Building on Blues

The heart of Modern Blues is the partnership of the music..movement..and you. In this class Sara will help you find ways to respond to the call of the music and helping you find its echo in your movement in dance. We’ll look at simple yet fluid ways for both lead and follow to be able to express their shared experience – to become lost in the music, stepping beyond the confines of ‘moves’ and into eloquent dance expression.

Blues Addiction

Once you’ve started dancing Modern Blues, you’ll never look back – when you learn to hit the breaks, to slide through the pauses, to let the music drive your dancing, to lose yourself in the playful exchange between lead and follow – moments of dance joy that will stay with you. Sara will help you build on your skills, adding drama and interest to your blues with some moments of flash, pace change and style, giving you what you need to allow you to explore the music in your shared dance.

Richard Chatland & Joanne Classes:

Bachata Workshop
Dominican Republic dance to Latino beats. The Classico version is easy to learn and fuse into modern jive when that slower Latin music comes on.

Rumba Workshop

Rumba is the Cuban Dance of smooth hip action. Learn how to use your hips with the minimum of effort while impressing your partner with your musicality Like the Cha Cha Cha this dance fuses in and out of Modern Jive Dance with ease.

Waltz Workshop

Tracey Barnes & Melvin Young Classes:

Smooth JIve 1& 2

Tango into Jive

Paul & Becky @ Pulse Classes:

West Coast Swing 1

Learn the four – six beat patterns that are the basis of West Coast Swing. Timings, footwork and everything you need to get you started. Great for anyone wanting to try West Coast for the first time, or to brush up if you’re not danced it in a while.

West Coast Swing 2

Learn the fifth and final ‘Fundamental’ pattern. A little trickier as it’s eight beats – but we’ll explain how and why things change!!! There’ll be time to add this to what you learned in WCS 1. Now you’ll be dancing it freestyle like a pro!!!

West Coast Swing 3

A class to stretch your West Coast. No matter what your level we’ll give you something to stretch you. The last workshop of the weekend – we’ll start easy peasy and keep making it harder til you break – in a fun way!!! Keep practicing and we’ll help you – warning … prepare for your head to explode!!!

Dips & Drops – for Jive, Blues & WCS

Starting nice and simple, we’ll show you how to get these stunning moves into your dancing – whatever your chosen style.
