We’re delighted to announce our other Community Heroes: Jess & Greg.
Jess met blues dancing via a stranger on a bus during a snowstorm. Greg met blues dancing at a house party, trying to make friends in a new city. Jess and Greg met – surprise, surprise – while blues dancing! They have gone on to dance all over the world and teach in the U.S., France, Switzerland, Germany and the UK. Known for being approachable and fun to dance with, Jess and Greg value self-expression, partnered creativity and comfort in their blues dances. They believe that dancing comfortably in one’s own body helps us dance comfortably with others, which is why their teaching frequently focuses on body mechanics and consent, endeavouring to let everyone’s inner (or outer!) dancer shine.
Their class will kick off the Saturday and set us up for the rest of the weekend:
You know the saying “you must love yourself before you can love somebody else”? The same can be said for connection! In order to connect our body to the floor and to itself, we’ll activate the joints and tissues from our feet through to our hands. We’ll pay special attention to the body mechanics of our shoulders, giving us the tools to find a relaxed and grounded frame. This class will prepare you to experience connection to your partners as if it were the easiest thing in the world.
