Since the start of the pandemic, we jumped on the chance to take Solo Blues Dance classes online. These classes are the highlight of Dara's week and lots of his students say the same thing!
If you love blues music and want to learn more about the history, stories and sounds; while learning to move your body and express the music in a fun, welcoming environment, you've come to the right place! Join Dara every week as he delves into the blues.
The classes happen live every week on Zoom:
Each course is either 4 or 6 weeks long. You can join in the first 2 weeks of the course.
Check our Courses page for upcoming courses and to register.
We are running courses throughout the year, each with a special blues music focus.
Each class combines live dancing and Q&A with pre-recorded follow-along exercises, which gives you the best possible sound and video streaming quality.
You have 24/7 access to the practice videos from the day of the class and for a month after the course finishes - so you have plenty of opportunity to practice in your own time too!
The course is suitable for all levels and we have dancers who are newer to blues as well as folks with many years experience in the group. You don't need to have taken any of our other courses to take part.
We will be SOLO dancing so you don't need a partner!
All you need is a little space to move, a computer and an internet connection. We'll send you simple joining instructions to make connecting for class easy.
We have a tiered system so everyone can contribute what they can manage financially, whether you're on a low income for any reason, have a regular job, or can afford to chip in extra for those paying less.
4 week course (4 hours of classes):
6 week course (6 hours of classes):
If your budget means the minimum contribution isn't affordable, get in touch and we'll work something out: firstname.lastname@example.org
