Stay-at-home Blues Dance Party – Feel the Christmas blues
Dal 26 Dicembre 2020 al 27 Dicembre 2020
Maybe you want to invite a few non-dancing friends to stay in touch with them even if you can’t meet them in person?
His focus is on fun, improvisation and clear communication and his classes are free and somewhat improvisational. The focus is on making sure that everyone takes something away from his classes.
Rufus (alias Jörg Teichert) is a musician from Dossenheim, Germany, who loves blues music. With his resonator guitar and a bottleneck he creates authentic delta blues sounds and bouncing ragtime rhythms. In 2012 he discovered the blues dance scene in Heidelberg. Since then he’s been playing for blues dancers at workshops and parties.

The first editions were described by our guests like this:
“Definitely the best lockdown evening so far.”
“it made me smile again for a while”
“Lovely party, lovely people.”
“It was awesome!”
“Never seen so many people dance at an online party.”
“Thank you very much! Was soooo good! Wait for the next one!”
“It was a great party. I’m still glowing”
“It was great idea and a lot of great songs!”
“we have been in other parties like this one and the music there sounded very bad…I have a question…why the music of this zoom sounds so good?”
– For best sound download the free Zoom app / Desktop Client from https://zoom.us/download
– You can also just open the Meeting-Link via Browser (instead of using the client) but it might compromise the sound quality.
– Dress up the way you feel good – it can be full festive evening dress or your comfy pyjamas.
– Prepare a drink or two.
– Invite your friends and family. Chances are they can´t run away anyway.
– Dim the light, get rid of the carpet, and enjoy the dance.
All microphones will be muted by default to avoid cacophony. We will give a short intro before the class starts.
We will communicate via the Zoom chat.
You can have 1-on-1 dances if you agree on doing one in the chat and enlarge your dance partner’s video by using “Pin Video” in the app. Try it! It’s a beautiful experience.
If you have the choice: connect to the internet via cable rather than Wifi.
If you have a bad connection and experience audio dropouts: consider switching your camera off to reduce total network load on your end. In any other case please have your camera on – it’s more fun for you and for everyone else.
