Tuesday LaB – October 21st

Happy Tuesday dancing! Here’s what’s happening this Tuesday night…

8pm Main Floor: A novice Blues lesson taught by Mary. Novice lessons are drop-in friendly, so they are a great place to start if you’re new to the dance. The first half hour of the social dance will have mostly Blues music so you can practice what you learned right away (but we hope you stay for the whole dance, and also come back next week).

8pm Upstairs: For October Allison and Matt are teaching a series titled “Once Upon a Blues”. The series will focus on creating stories within your blues dancing. You will learn about musicality and how to play with the characters of the song to build a story with your partner.

9pm -12am: Social Dancing on the main floor! Dan Repsch and Breanna are DJing.

Tuesday LaB nights cost $7 to attend (that includes both the dance and the lesson). No partner is required. We do not allow anyone to join lessons more than 15 minutes after their scheduled start time, so make sure to arrive on time!

Tuesday LaB dances and classes are held in the Ethical Society building on Rittenhouse Square (1906 S Rittenhouse Square). Hope to see you there!

Grand Slam Trio at Rhythm Session TONIGHT!

It’s almost time–October’s Rhythm Session is TONIGHT! We’re going to celebrate the return of West Philly’s jazz night with some of the swingingest folks we know, the Grand Slam Trio!

As always, we encourage you to join us, bring your friends, and enjoy the cozy social environment while you dance away the evening. Meet us at Take the Lead, a lovely studio in West Philly with great floors, plenty of seating and space, and a one-of-a-kind atmosphere. Don’t forget to join the facebook event and let everyone know you’re coming! And remember, you can keep up with Rhythm Session on TwitterInstagram, and Facebook, too.

Rhythm Session aims to get jazz dancers, musicians, and fans together to interact and celebrate the music and dance in a comfortable social setting. The event is held every third Sunday of the month unless otherwise noted at Take the Lead Studio, 4701 Pine Street, in Philly. There is a suggested donation of $10+ to help pay the band and space.
