One of the distinct rhythms in Blues music is the shuffle beat in which a variety of dances can be applied such as the Texas Shuffle, the Piedmont Triple Step, and the Chicago Triple Step. We’ll first delve into the music that inspires these dances and then apply the proper footwork, movement, and partner connection to express the distinct style of these individual dances to the music they are danced to.

In this class, we'll cover basic posture, connection, traveling across the floor, and fun step patterns.
