To promote the best learning environment, we ask that you arrive on time to workshops. Latecomers will not be admitted into a workshop any later than 15 minutes after the scheduled start time (5-minutes for the Mini!)

Give yourself a few extra minutes to get to classes so that you don’t miss a minute of sweet, juicy knowledge!

If you still need to show proof of COVID negativity, give yourself 20 extra minutes to test here!

Workshops take place Saturday and Sunday. (But not too early – we’re night owls, too.) Dance classes are 90 minutes and are divided into three themes. Plus! We’ll have our new 30 minute Mini Workshops to ease you back into learning after lunch!

FoundationsTechnique and StylesMake It Sing!
Focusing on the core aspects of Blues dance, these classes are for those with a year or less of Blues experience, as well as for more experienced dancers looking to revisit and refine their understanding of essential Blues technique.These classes are intended for intermediate and advanced dancers with experience in Blues, and focus on building vocabulary and refining skills. This track features classes on the physical aspects of technique and partnership, as well as classes about some of the sub-styles of Blues dance that stem from the diversity of Blues music.These classes are intended for intermediate and advanced dancers with experience in Blues. These classes are about putting cherries on top of your dance with musicality, play, dynamic partnership, and competition concepts.

You are not restricted to any one theme, and can take any class from each and any theme as you please, which gives you the freedom to work on what you need based on your abilities and interests. Every 90-minute time slot will have a workshop from each of the three themes happening concurrently, so it really is a chose-your-own-adventure! All of our workshops are conveniently located in adjacent rooms in a single building, and Carnegie Mellon is close to many local eateries, so finding lunch is quick and easy.

SCB also hosts a Blues clinic both Saturday and Sunday this year!, where instructors give individuals feedback on their dancing. If you don’t have a full weekend pass, you can still attend the Blues clinic, for $10. When you’re not getting feedback, you can practice alone or with a partner, or just treat it as a bonus social dance. It’s a great chance to learn more and practice your skills. Don’t miss it!
