This month at Tuesday Blues, our series lessons are focused on preparing dancers for Rose City Blues. This coming Tuesday we have a class on Latin Blues with Andrew Smith, who will be visiting us from Seattle.

Many blues songs feature Latin rhythms, so let's get acquainted with the wide world of Latin rhythms and movements and how to «bluesify» them. It's old school fusion, looking at two genres that have been “fusing” for a long time. Best of all, you get to work your hips. Yowza.

Class starts at 7:30 PM at the Bossanova Ballroom, and is $8.

Teaching internationally for over a decade, Andrew still wears the same pair of dance shoes he bought after falling in love with social dance at the end of high school. In classes around the world, he draws upon his experience in social, vernacular, and classical dances to inspire and challenge his students. He brings a balanced focus to technique, body mechanics, spirit, and creativity and strives to create a positive, safe learning environment. Andrew continues to hone his skills through competitions and wins at events around the country, including Mean Old Blues, Rose City Blues (twice), and Portland Blues Experience (thrice). In his spare time, Andrew is a software engineer and holds a Master's degree in Sustainable Design and Construction from Stanford University. He enjoys hugs, yoga, and dark chocolate.
