13:00 - 13:30 Registration
13:30 - 17:00 Classes (3 hours with break)
17:00 Drinks and food at Telford's

Venue
Telford’s Warehouse, Tower Wharf, Chester, CH1 4EZ

This is a traditional blues dance workshop, suitable for people who have never danced blues before, but will also have something new for more experienced dancers. The classes will be taught switch (everyone both leading and following). After the classes, we'll go upstairs at Telford's for a group meal.

What is blues dancing?
Blues is a style of dance that is all about interpreting and expressing the music. Like swing dancing, it evolved from African rhythms and movements, developing in smoky juke joints and Blues house parties. Many aspects of Blues dancing such as call and response, emotional intensity, and tension and release are directly related to the music. If you love blues music you’ll love blues dancing! Here's a video made by blues dancers in Paris:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rpVoCEixMSo


Cost
Tickets are £30 for 3 hours of classes. We'll contact you with bank details to make payment closer to the time. Payment will be required to confirm your space at the event. We won't be offering refunds, but if you are no longer able to attend, you are welcome to sell on your ticket.

Hosting
If you are from out of town, there is limited hosting available, which will be prioritised for people from furthest away. Otherwise, we can recommend places to stay in Chester.

Teacher
When starting the amazing Bristol blues scene in 2013, Tristan discovered a passion for helping other people enjoy this wonderful dance even more. Since then he’s been invited to teach across Europe, and built a reputation for fun and engaging lessons that still help people change their dancing for the better.
He most loves conversational dances, where ideas spark backward and forward between partners, and you leave the dance feeling like your partner showed you something genuine about themselves. That focus leads him to teach classes on connection, on being a receptive lead or having the confidence as a follow to share what you feel in the music with your partner. He is secretly trying to make everyone in to his ideal dancing partner, and isn’t even slightly sorry about it.

Cheshire Swing Cats wants everyone to feel absolutely comfortable and safe at all of our events. By attending any of our events in any capacity, you agree to treat all participants with care and respect and abide by our code of conduct. For more info, see our website, www.cheshireswingcats.com

Belta Blues 2017 Newcastle-upon-Tyne
Belta Blues 2017 10/13/2017 City: Newcastle-upon-Tyne, United Kingdom Dances: Blues Join us for a weekend of blues with classes for experienced dancers and parties for all.

There will be one core track so that we can build a cohesive curriculum over the weekend, and share the experience as a group. Challenging concepts and lessons, for intermediate to advanced dancers, grounding our Blues with Trad techniques to better let our individual creativity and expression blossom.
This year will see a combination of solo body movement, Trad partner styles, flash moves, musicality and creativity. We’ll talk about different music styles and dance styles, to a wide range of tempos. As always we aim to challenge you to work on your body awareness and breaking down your habits, all to evolve into something new!
The main courses will be articulated around:
Dancing to triplets in the music
Connecting with your partner both in simple-but-new patterns, and in more flashy ballrooming styles
Tackling up-tempo Blues
Working on solo body movement to integrate your pulse, as well as bring cool individual variations in your dancing.
We can’t wait to be back and we hope to see you soon ! "

And then there will be the parties hosted by fabulous DJs and great live music. It will be all kinds of epic, so be there lovely people. Tickets go on sale on the 2nd June. Tickets from £75.
Teachers: Vivien Nivesse and Philippa Svensson
