BLOCK PARTY ACTIVITY - Ask More: Group Blues Lesson + Social Dance

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Ask More is a space for SDF goers to physically partner with all bodies and genders in an open-invite, fun partner dance setting. An hour-long drop-in intro to blues dance lesson (no partner required) will be followed by an hour social dance.

Lesson will cover partner dance basics, breaking down assumptions about dance role based on gender, and invoke the practice of asking more questions—verbally and nonverbally—to share a dance full of enthusiastic consent.
