Class Description

Ce cours est une introduction au "Jukin' Blues". Une groupe de danses qui est né des "juke joints" et de soirées chez des amis dans le sud rural des États-Unis. Le Jukin' blues a été influencé par un mix d'alcool bon marché, des musiciens qui voyageaient beaucoup et le laisser-aller (atmosphère de party!). Le Jukin' Blues implique beaucoup de danse solo et de jouer avec des formes et rythme produits avec le corps en relation avec la danse!

 

This class will be an introduction to jukin' blues - a group of dances that originated in juke joints and house parties in the rural south of the United States. Jukin' blues dances were influenced by a mix of cheap liquor, travelling musicians, and a letting go or party atmosphere. They involve a heavy solo dancing component as well as playing with shapes and rhythms in the body. This 6-week series is part of the fundamentals blues classes at Cat's Corner. Both Ballroomin' and Jukin' need to be taken before moving on to the higher levels.
