Description

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 includes well-known Drape and Drag movements like drags and pivots, plus some of our favorite combinations. 

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.

Who this course is for:
  • Dancers who are intermediate to very experienced.
  • Dancers who have taken Drape and Drag 1: Fundamentals and 2: Shaping.
