- Dance the fundamentals of the blues/jazz style Drape and Drag.
- You should be physically comfortable with walking.
Ruth and Mike are known for their dramatic and flowing style of dancing to slow jazz and jazz blues. They are excited to share it with you:
Drape and Drag is our signature style of blues and slow jazz dancing. It is inspired by early dancers like Sandra Gibson and Albert Minns, as well as dances like the Strut, the Two-Step, and the Ballroom. We imbue this style with our own personality, so it has lots of striking shapes, smooth flow, rippling undulation, and underlying power. This course will give you a solid foundation in the essentials of weight shifts and connection with a partner. Whether you are new or experienced, continuing to work on these fundamentals is what opens up the possibility to do fancier and more difficult movements.
Each lesson includes short practice videos. No partner? No problem- there are separate videos for practicing with a partner and by yourself, so you can work on this style even without a partner.
- People of all levels from brand-new to partner dancing to very experienced.
