This workshop is aimed at Modern Jivers who've been dancing at least six months who want to feel more confident when going into the "Blues Room" at dance holidays and when attending "Smooth Jive" or Blues dances and freestyles. Much of what you will learn can be added to your Modern Jive dancing as there is a great deal of crossover between "Modern Blues", "Smooth Jive" and "Modern Jive".
There's a lot of dance events labelled "Blues", "Smooth" or "Expressive". And a lot of confusion about what these terms mean. Especially as different people mean different things when they say "Blues dance", "Smooth Jive" or "Expressive". This workshop will, hopefully, remove the confusion and help Modern Jivers to start their Smooth, Blues and Expressive Journey.
Andy McGregor will be leading this workshop. He's been dancing Blues and Smooth for a very long time, having attended his first Blues Dance class in Manhattan in 1992. Andy often judges dance competitions, including "Blues" and "Smooth" comps. Andy can be seen carrying the clipboard as Head Judge in this clip from the "UK Smooth and Blues Champs" - this is "Lucky Dip" where people were randomly allocated a partner. For those who don't recognise Andy, he's the one in the kilt.
