As it’s our end of term party we’ll be having a taster class in blues – lindy’s more relaxed, slower cousin, which is usually danced to slower, bluesier music. Like lindy hop, blues dancing is another vernacular jazz dance style which began way back in the 1930s, when folk would gather in “juke joints” late at night and dance in crowded rooms to live blues music. Nowadays, blues is danced to all sorts of slower music, including blues, usually late at night, often at lindy events, when everyone is too tired to dance to the fast tunes!
And don’t disappear after class! It’s a party! So grab a drink from the bar and stick around for some social dancing with your new (and old?) dancing chums.
It wouldn’t be an end of term party without cake. So please feel free to bring along some baked goods or snacks.
And hey, why not get dressed up for the occasion?
