This Bootcamp course condenses the standard 6-week format into one action-packed weekend. Be prepared to learn a lot as we take a tour through core dance skills and concepts of Blues movement, aesthetic, and music. We'll cover multiple rhythms, different vernacular movements and styles of blues. Whether you're a relative novice or an experienced social dancer, everyone will be pushed and challenged and walk away with new and improved skills. You'll get 10 hours of instruction for just $100 to take your dancing to the next level.
The next weekend Bootcamp will be Feb 4th & 5th, 1-6pm.
Location: Ragtime PDX, 232 SE Oak St., Portland OR
In lieu of practicas, short practice sessions will be interspersed between new content.

- We're at Ragtime PDX sudio from 1-6pm on Saturday and Sunday, please be on time. The address is 232 SE Oak St, Portland.

- Pack yourself snacks, lunch, and a water bottle! There is food nearby, but if you pack yourself food you can use your downtime to recoup or practice instead of running all over to find food.
