- 2:30 PM – 5:30 PM JUKIN’ BLUES DANCE WORKSHOP
Jukin’ I: Dance like no one is watching
The blues dances of the rent parties and juke joints are the “down home” dances done when people wanted to let their hair down and didn’t care who was watching. We will cover a number of foundational dance movements that serve as the basics of these dances.
Jukin’ II: Electric Boogaloo
We will learn more funky blues dances and really concentrate on what in the music spurs our movement. Newer dancers will increase their juke joint style-of-dance while more experienced dancers will gain new musicality and improvisation skills.
