Brian Lucky Skillen is in town and teaching a weekend workshop tailored to fusion dancers and blues dancers. Lucky was one of my own first teachers of Fusion and he has been known to teach globally Blues, Fusion, and Lindy Hop.

Saturday: (12:30 pm to 6 pm)
1) Connection ­- This class will give you the tools to connect with your partner on many levels including visual physical and auditory. It will give you the skills to connect in open position, closed position and close embrace. It will also explore where movement is being generated and how it is communicated. 
2) Fox Fusion - This fusion dance will use techniques of foxtrot and other traveling dances to add elegance and grace to your dancing.
3) Turn Technique - This class focuses on the comprehensive Drills and Skills a dancer must know in order to Pivot, Chainnes, Pirouette/Spin and Pencil Turn. Achieve proper alignment and posture, for balance, control, and to enable spotting in your revolutions for clean balanced entry and exit in all turns.
4) Musicality: This is a fun and exciting class that will help you discover how to interpret the music in new ways – the hallmark of a great dancer is how they interpret the music
Saturday Night: Mission Fusion!

Sunday (12:30 pm to 6 pm)
5) Rhythm and slides - This class will give you fun slides that will add to your fusion dancing. It will teach you how to get from point A to point B with style.
6) Tangoed up in blues - this fusion dance mixes the upright formality of tango with down home feeling of blues. In this class, you will learn some of the fundamentals of tango as well as transitions between the two dances. It will give your dancing a smooth intimate look that only tango can provide
7) Momentum - This class will teach you off axis moves that will add flash and panache to your dancing.
