Another Little Blues Sister is happening on the 18th – 20th of October 2019! Save the date!
And while we are at it, let us introduce the main teachers!
Rosie & Marshal Myhan-Keogh
Rosie comes from Yorkshire, UK. She tried many dance styles but nothing moved her like the blues. Before she found blues Rosie loved dancehall. She learnt it on someone’s front porch when living on the Caribbean coast of Nicaragua. When she found that blues dancing had the same African roots, she instantly fell in love. Rosie started teaching in early 2016 & set up her Manchester blues scene ‘Honey Blues’ a year later, where she’s been teaching every week since. She likes her dancing to always fit the music & wants you to be able to see what she’s hearing through her body. She loves the huge variety of music & dances within the blues genre & can’t wait to share some of these with you.
Marshal comes all the way from Nashville in the USA. He started dancing in 2010 and has been in love with it ever since. To learn as much as he could, Marshal would drive hours to go to every possible swing & blues dance he could find, often dancing 5 nights a week. A renowned DJ in the US and across Europe, Marshal has shared his love of blues & swing DJing at events such as The Spoonful & Double Shot Valencia. He’s a huge fan of the blues & jazz genres. He sees dancing as a way of actively listening to the music and connecting to it in a deep way.
Rosie & Marshal met dancing & have been dancing ever since. They love going to see live blues bands & that feeling of connection between the musicians & the dancers. Not only do they both teach, & DJ, they also organise an event called ‘Blues in the Hudd’ in Rosie’s hometown of Huddersfield. This August will be its 4th year!
They can’t wait to get everyone grooving & share the joy of blues with you all.
