505 Blues Dance: Brenda Russell Training & Playing - Blues, Jazz Workshop 10/26/2018 City: Albuquerque, USA Dances: Blues, Solo Jazz We have a special workshop for you that you definitely want to be there for!

Featuring international instructor Brenda Russell ~!!!!

Friday (2hrs Workshop & Social Dance)
Not Your Grandma's Waltz (7-9pm)
One Step is one of the oldest known Blues Dances. Waltz is also a One Step Dance and is a cultural social dance all over the world. Many Blues songs are 6/8 or 3/4 time. Brenda will share various ways to move to Blues Waltz and 6/8 rhythms for magical blues dances.

Followed by dancing to live music (9pm till midnight)

Saturday (6 hrs Workshops & Social Dance)
Warm-up and Check-in( 10:00-10:30)

I Strut My Stuff (75 min) (10:30-11:45am)
One-Step is one of the earliest American social dances. Because of the fixed rhythm, body movement and maneuvering come to the forefront in distinguishing one style from another. We will explore many of the dynamics of One-Step dancing as well as various types of One Step such as Strut, Trot, Peabody, etc, as they connect to different types of music.

(15 min break) (11:45-12:00pm)

Giving It To You Straight (75 min) (12:00-1:15pm)
Early American Blues was commonly done in a binary or straight Blues style. When the music is subdivided by two the transitions of axis change and expressions of rhythm are small and efficient. Learn the fundamentals and tricks of dancing to Binary Blues from the Delta to Sweet Home Chicago.

Lunch (60 min) (1:15-2:45pm)

Cakewalk Into Town (75 min) (2:45-4:00 pm)
There was One-Step and it was good. There was a Two-Step and it was also good. Learn the roots of the American social dances that are the foundation for Blues, Swing and most popular American social dances. Savoy Walks/Swing Walks (commonly danced at the Savoy Ballroom) come forth from these original American dances, as well as many styles of Ballroom Blues.

(15 min break) (4:00-4:15pm)

That's Swingin' (75 min) (4:15-5:30pm)
Swung beats refer to a subdivision of three, or a triplet rhythm, as opposed to the Binary rhythms explored earlier. So now we have Ternary rhythms adding a wave to our Blues. We will explore 7 types of spinal movements that can be used to express Ternary Blues music.

Q&A/ Practice (30 min) (5:30-6:00pm)

Dinner Break (3 hrs) (6:00-9:00pm)

Evening Dance (9:00pm-Midnight)

Sunday (6 hrs Workshops & Social Dance)
Love that Afro Beat (10:30-12:00)
Find out what St. Louis Blues, Hound Dog, and Baby Scratch My Back have in common, and how to move into a four-beat basic structure of Two-Step dancing. Brenda will cover a simple survival kit for Afro-Latin Blues, and how to sink deep into the groove, as opposed to floating on top of the metronome. We will also explore the body movements derived from African, Afro-Caribbean, and Afro-Latin dance.

(15min break) (12-12:15pm)

Digging Deeper (90 min) (12:15-1:45pm)
We will continue with One Step and Two Step Dances building layers of technique for added grace and efficiency, fun maneuvers, distinctive aesthetics for dances such as Strut, Trot, Grind, and Jazz movement for musical expression.

Lunch (75 min) (1:45-3:00pm)

Jook! (90 min) (3:00-4:30pm)
Coming back into the stationary dances of Binary and Ternary Blues to get you movin' and groovin', adding syncopations that will take you to that special place of continuous and effortless mechanics, as well as partner dynamics for maneuvering in tight spaces.

Practice/Q&A (90 min) (4:30-6:00pm)

Dinner and DJ'd Dance (8-11pm)
Teachers: Brenda Russell's bio:

Let's delve deep into the blues, exploring the dances, music, and history of the people who originated this culture.

We’ve got San Francisco's Damon Stone, London's Trisha Sewell, and London's resident American Jae Wilson to get you movin’ and groovin’. They’ll be joined by musician / lecturer from Leeds Arts University Tom Attah and some expert community members to get you thinking and hmmm-ing. And cocoa. We’ll also have lots of cocoa.

Your ticket includes 8+ hours of classes and 3 parties with traditional music from Tom Attah, Stefano Ronchi, and more!

The last Friday night of every month is Blues At The Ritzy - and this January is no different! A ticket for London’s longest-running monthly dance has been incorporated into your ticket, lucky you. 8pm - 2am, act TBA.

Saturday we’ve teamed up with London’s other premier blues night, Merchant Moonshine with Blues Revolution. 8pm - 12am+ with music from Stefano Ronchi at one of the coziest cocktail bars in the city.

Sunday we’ll be running an early evening dance after workshops with live music from Tom Attah.

If you want to learn more about where blues dance came from, as well as being part of a community celebration of that culture, bring it on in.

We’re still finalising workshop and talk ideas so fill out a survey and let us know what excites you: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/2J2G8H5
