Blüesli 2.0

Leitung: Leigh & Dáire

Bluestanz Workshop und Party mit Live Musik!

Blues Dance Weekend: two days of workshops and a party with live music on Saturday evening.

What is Blues dancing?

Blues dances are a family of dances originated in Afro-American communities at the beginning of the 20th century. Like the music, the dances are diverse and soulful. Be it dancing solo or with a partner, to a tempo ranging from very slow to very fast, a night of blues dancing gives everybody an occasion to express their own feelings.

Who is it for?

Anybody who wants to learn how to move to Blues music! Whether it's because you love the music, you love moving freely in tune with a partner or discovering new movement possibilities and ways to express yourself through dance, you will find something good.

Your teachers

LEIGH ANDERSON

Since discovering the blues, Leigh has succumbed hopelessly to its charms. She brings the essence of the sultry, soulful blues to dance floors; competing, teaching and DJing in Scotland and around Europe. She also knows how to throw a mighty-fine party and is notorious for bringing together kick-ass events in her home scene, Edinburgh, including the love-fest that is The Spoonful! Leigh’s mission in life is to squeeze every ounce of enjoyment out of every dance, and her welcoming classes are rooted in this philosophy.
 
DAIRE MAC AN BHAIRD

Daire likes his music like he likes his whiskey – aged and mellow. He was born under a bad sign in Holland and has both lived, taught and DJed blues all over Europe. A mover and a shaker in more ways than one, he is one of the founders of blues dance scene in Delft, Holland and co-organises Crash! The Delft Blues Festival every February. Daire is always researching and expanding his knowledge of blues music and dance both on and off the floor. He wants to share the joy of connection with the music, your partner, and the moment.
