How’s that contra-body movement coming along? This Monday evening, Jan 28, 6pm at Cowboy Monkey, Sierra and Dave will teach part two of the lesson on forward and backward walking. Although most of us mastered walking in everyday life some years ago, this is harder than it sounds while dancing with a partner.
An instructor will also be on hand to teach a separate beginner lesson if desired by the group. As always the lesson is free, we are enthusiastically beginner-friendly, and there’s no need to bring a partner.
This Monday, at Cowboy Monkey. 6pm Lesson with Jennifer. She’ll be teaching close embrace slow drag.
As always, we’ll make sure our lesson or a side-lesson is beginner-friendly.
7-9pm free social dance. Our crowd has been growing — should be a fun time.
We had a solid turnout last week, with a number of newcomers. (Yes!) With the students back in town, tonight’s fun should be up another notch.
It’s Sierra’s turn to teach and rumor is she might teach us forward/backward walking (it sounds so simple right?) and lunges. Lesson 6pm, Dance 7-9pm @ Cowboy Monkey. Lesson and dance are free. Come eat, drink, and dance with us.
Update: Thanks Laura Gillen for this picture of tonight’s dance:
Last night was a bluesCENTRAL Get-Out-And-Dance at Neil St. Blues, where the Blues Deacons played some great danceable blues tunes and Neil St. Blues welcomed us with their usual warmth and enthusiasm. Thanks Laura Gillen for these pics of the fun times!
Winter break is over, and our weekly lesson and dance are back at Cowboy Monkey, in downtown Champaign. Jan 7th and every Monday following, we’ll have our beginner-friendly lesson at 6pm, and social dance from 7-9pm. More details here. Come dance with us!
