The Blues Dance Circle

October 4, 2022 @ 19:30 - 21:30

Join the blues circle for 5 even week Tuesdays of 45 min of informal instruction followed by 1 h of practice and social dancing!

Mandatory registration at:

Blues dancing shares many roots with lindy hop and is often danced in the lindy hop community. The goal with this blues circle is to make the beginner feel at home at a blues party or blues weekend and to give the more experienced dancer a chance to practice and learn new moves, or why not learn the role you usually don’t dance?

The circle will run on even weeks thus perfect to combine with the slow Lindy Hop track:

There will not be any experienced instructor, but someone from the circle or an invited guest will share their knowledge on a specific part of blues dancing each time. The topics will depend on who is instructing, but preliminarily they would be:

Blues moves and slides, solo and together
Inside and outside turns
Walks and ochos
Switching
Close embrace

It is totally fine to just show up and participate, but you are very welcome to help out with instructing, being instructor sidekick or DJing one of the nights. This will be coordinated by Pelle Ohlsson so let him know if you are interested!

Each night will be free standing, but you will learn the most from joining as many of them as you can. We will start with 5 nights and this may be followed up by another circle if there is interest.

You will sign up as leader or follower as you prefer, but in case the class would be very unbalanced we may do everybody-leads-everybody-follows.
