Blues Muse 2016 (October 21st – 23rd, 2016)

A follow-focused workshop weekend to amuse and inspire.

What makes a blues dance magical? A great song, an inspiring follow, and a receptive lead. Blues Muse is a workshop weekend dedicated to bringing out the muse in every follow, and teaching leads to appreciate and collaborate with their partner. This weekend includes two full days of instruction, a blues Jack & Jill competition, a Jill competition, special performances, and three nights of social dancing to nationally hailed blues DJs, complete with late-night dances. Stay tuned for music updates!

To achieve these goals, we’ve invited eight blues Muses who are renowned for their inspiring teaching, mesmerizing social dancing, and collaborative partnerships:
Julie Brown, Adamo Ciarallo, Shawn Hershey, Dan Legenthal, Mike Legenthal, Vicci Moore, Dan Repsch, and Jenny Sowden!

As social dancers, our Muses are known primarily for their impeccable partnering, their gorgeous solo movement, and their inspired musical contributions to every dance. The follow-inspired focus of Blues Muse does not exclude the pivotal contributions of leaders to magical, conversational dancing! Muses will inspire follows and leads alike, with just as much instruction on partnered and solo blues for leads as for follows.
