Class Series #1:

Instructors: Josh &Devona

BLUESKOOL provides blues dancing classes meant to give NYC blues dancers a place to improve their blues dancing skills. We hire blues dance instructors to teach 3-week class series. Each series could occur at different times depending on instructor availability.

First Series: Blues Ballroomin'

Our first series is in Blues Ballroomin' and will be taught by Devona Cartier & Josh Boroff. Devona & Josh have developed a specialty in Slow Drag which is a blues dancing style commonly used in Blues Ballroomin'. The 3-week class series will costs $45 if you pre-register by paypal. Per class drop-in rates of $17 possible if you have not pre-registered.

Instructors' Class Description:

Slowdrag, Struttin, and ballroomin' are staples in our dance canon; especially if the music has that hot, jazzy, dirge feeling, or is a sweet, cool, blues tune. We will go over the technique these dances, add a number of different moves, turns, drags, and lifts, and toss in some musicality and style.
