Powerhouse Blues 10/27

Hey All! Come on out to PhB tonight for another great night of Blues dancing in Philadelphia! We’ll have Tara Hughes and myself DJing sweet tunes for you and we’ll have an awesome class taught by Allison Bishop to wrap up the A-Muse Me series!

Tonight’s class will be Micro-musements! Focus on communicating with your partner in close embrace – and adding in follow voice even when everything is tiny and cozy!

Also, since it is Halloween, bring out your orange and black colors tonight!

Tuesday LaB – October 28th

Here’s what’s happening this Tuesday night…

8pm Main Floor: A novice Lindy lesson taught by Brian. 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 Lindy 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: Ashley will be teaching the Thriller dance choreography, ’cause it’s Halloween this week!

9pm -12am: Social Dancing on the main floor! Matt Rapp and Tara are DJing!

****It’s Halloween this week! Powerhouse Blues is looking for your best black and orange, Tuesday LaB is going to hold a costume contest, and Jazz Attack has ‘& the Bears’ playing! Can’t wait to see you all!****

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!

Whether you’re a total newcomer to dance, a novice working on your basic skills, or an experienced dancer who wants to brush up on your technique, LaB’s Blues Crash Course is the place to be!

Brian will be teaching a full day’s worth of pulse, triple-steps, step-steps, 6-count, 8-count, drills, exercises, patterns, and everything else you need to become a rock-solid Lindy Hop dancer. No experience or partner required!
