img_5855Are you ready to WALTZ?

Join the community of Miranda’s Hearth for our monthly Waltzdays!

We gather at the Democracy Center in Harvard Square on the fourth Sunday every month for some 1-2-3, 1-2-3, 1-2-3ing.

Not only are there always splendid folks to dance with, we also have live music and an hour long lesson before the dance.

Waltzday XIII: Waltzing the Blues

“In the century of jazz we are likely to overlook the emergence of the waltz as a hot and explosive human expression that broke through the formal feudal barriers of courtly and choral dance styles.” ― Marshall McLuhan

At Miranda’s Hearth, we know just how hot and explosive the waltz can be. That’s why this month we’re pushing our monthly waltz night to a new level by Waltzing the Blues. Kelsey Flynn will be DJing an entire evening of blues and fusion music with recognizable waltz beats.

Want to waltz? We’ve got you covered.
Want to blues? We hope you will!
Want to combine the two? We can’t WAIT for it!

Beginner Lesson with Nick Arango:

“If you can walk, and you can count, then you can dance. We will bring you through the fundamentals of what makes a waltz, and how to connect with your partner. By the end of the class you should have all the tools you need to enjoy yourself on the dance floor. Come out and join us!”

Intermediate Lesson with Clayton Jennings:

“This month we will explore how two dance styles can intersect in what we are calling Blues Waltz Fusion! In this intermediate lesson we will explore ways to add qualities of movement found in blues dancing to waltz footwork. We will also teach some blues choreography that can add a punch to your waltzing. Some experience with folk/rotary waltz is recommended.”
