Event Description

While today jazz and blues may be regarded as different musical genres, jazz music evolved out of blues musical traditions creating a fuzzy distinction between what is strictly “blues” or “jazz.” As both blues and jazz music spread throughout the country, different dance traditions evolved to similar music. Due to this overlap, we have multiple ways to dance to slow jazz. Join instructor Laura Chieko for a day-long exploration comparing and contrasting several ways of dancing to slow jazz music, including vernacular solo jazz movements, ballroomin’ blues, slow Lindy, and slow balboa.

All are welcome:
~ Dancers from all backgrounds are encouraged to join us!
~ While some of the material will be thought at an intermediate level and some dancing experience might help, non-dancers (yet) are welcome too!

What Does Dr. MLK, Jr. Mean to You?

Each month, we pose a question to the OneLISC family, and share the responses reflecting our diverse range of voices and backgrounds. To mark Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s 92nd birthday, this month’s Reflections from the Field consider his life and work and his legacy today. The reflections register anger and dismay and exhaustion, but also hope, power and a commitment to keep working, to keep exerting good, strong pressure to shape our moral universe.
