About the event

Slow music is a tad scary right? Especially at the end of an evening. But as dancers, don't you feel that you want to do more than just sway and smooch?

Well if you do then this is the workshop for you! 

First, let’s define the workshop title:

Vintage – denoting something from the past of high quality, especially something representing the best of its kind. (Oxford Dictionary)

Blues – Simply dancing to blues music and interpreting the attitude of the music through the expression of the movements danced by the partnership.  (The Dancer’s Dictionary)

Within this workshop, Ben will teach you a variety of dancing techniques from many different blues families from Juke Joint, Slow Drag to Ballrooming. All concepts and movements will be accessible and easily transferred into your current dancing repertoire.

Expect to be challenged by learning diverse footwork patterns, elegant dips and tricks, innovative styling and captivating travelling movements. You’ll leave this workshop with a whole new outlook on slower tempo dancing!

This is your chance to learn from the best in this 2.5hr workshop, brought to you by Blues Champion and qualified dance teacher Ben Davies. 

The cost is £15pp (or £20 a couple) and will be held before the afternoon dance with The that you can make a day of it!

Please bring refreshments.
