Jookin’ is the style of blues dance that is most commonly seen on the social dance floor. A little gritty and a little sassy, Jookin’ was done in the jook joints down south and later at rent parties in the big cities. During this class we will focus on the gritty side of Jookin’- we’ll get down & dirty, movin’ & groovin’ to the deepest of the blues tunes. Are you ready to get down?!
Work That Groove
Let’s find your groove and work it! Too often we dance our default and never go beyond it. This class will explore ways to expand our groove in both solo and partnered dancing. Warning: creativity and smiling will happen!
Time to get fancy! A little bit of flight, a little bit of dynamite. Let’s add some POP and ZING to your dancing!
Erin has been haunting the dance floor since the early 2000’s. With a huge variety of dances from blues and swing to Ballroom and belly dancing, you will find her feet moving to any beat.
Having a deep belief that anyone can dance if their willing to put in the effort, Erin skillfully breaks down dance movements to what people do in everyday life. Furthermore, she believes that dancing is a joyful physical expression and that reflects in her teaching.
She teaches both locally and nation-wide, is a frequent competitor, and part of the all-star women’s blues troupe, Mojo Aristocracy. She’s frequently dressed to the nines, so be on the lookout for her and ask her for a dance!
With over 20 years of dance experience, John is confident in his dance ability, but also knows that one can never learn enough! He runs a dynamic, lighthearted classroom, and enjoys working with beginner dancers, instructors, and everyone else in-between. Students have often said they feel comfortable and have fun in the safe environment he creates. His classes will challenge you to develop new dance technique, improve your body awareness, and gain new insight on how to move your body.
