Launching The Blues
You’re a brand new blues dancer who has fallen head over heels in love with the dance and wants to jump start your journey on the road to becoming a mystical blues muse. You're working on getting comfortable with the basic blues footwork, partner connections, pulse and beginning to build a blues dance vocabulary.
Engineering The Blues
You’re newer to blues and have been taking several classes at your weekly venue, and you want to become a more active social dancer. You’re working on pulse, turning down a line, walking and traveling, grounding, lagging behind the beat, some historical blues vernacular, and momentum and elasticity.
Exploring The Blues
In addition to being an active social dancer, you’ve probably taken a workshop or two or have started traveling to events in other scenes. You’re comfortable with all the concepts outlined in the other tracks, and are learning concepts such as frame matching, shared and off-axis turns, dancing to subdivided and polyrhythms, and the ability to create rhythm and pulse throughout the body. You are also starting to solo dance, add on to your blues vernacular, and explore musicality.
