I only try to dance better than myself.”
- Mikhail Baryshnikov
Private lessons are a great way to jump start your dance learning, or refresh a forgotten skill. There is no substitute for intense 1-on-1 attention! Private or semi-private (bring a friend) lessons are available during weekdays and evenings. To schedule a lesson contact Flouer@BluesDanceNewYork.com
Fundamentals Fridays before FNBlues 8:30-9:30
If your brand new to Blues Dancing this is the class for you! We will cover some of the fundamental aspects of Blues such as pulse, how we connect to your partner, and about blues music. One of the goals of this class is to get you out on the floor for your first night out, and show you what makes blues dancing so different from other dances. Some people choose to take this class more than once until they have fully digested all the concepts presented.
Intermediate Fridays before FNBlues from 8:30-9:30
To give you a more complete understanding of a topic, we are presenting you with “Chapters” for the Intermediate class. Classes can be taken individually, but are meant to build skills in a particular area of dance.
We teach specific movements that are a part of the blues vocabulary, but classes at FNBlues will almost always also offer a theory behind the movements. We will teach you to dance through being able to analyze the ‘why’ and ‘how’ things work. We emphasize creativity and historical context. Ultimately, taking class is your vehicle to having even more fun on the dance floor!
We are lucky to be based in New York City, and have the opportunity to host workshops with regional, national, and international instructors from all over the world. Check out the Upcoming Workshops tab to find out more about what is coming up!
