LESSONS

TEACHERS

Annette Kühnle (DE)

Annette Kühnle (DE)

Annette hails from Heidelberg, Germany and is one of Europe’s most prominent proselytisers of blues dance as a teacher, social dancer, DJ and organiser. She is coming back to Prague after four years to help us develop our individuality and our own ability to interpret music through dance. Warning – her love of teaching and dancing is infectious!

Katka and Mikuláš Bryanovi (CZ)

Katka and Mikuláš Bryanovi (CZ)

Katka and Mikuláš fell in love with blues ten years ago. They gathered experiences at European blues dance camps and festivals. With others they started Prague blues dance scene and between the years of 2013 and 2017 they organised the well-known Prague Blues eXchange. Due to the expansion of their dynasty of little blues enthusiasts they paused teaching and, unfortunately, even dancing. But they miss it badly! They will be delighted to guide you through the open level lesson.

LEVELS

OPEN LEVEL

for dancers of all levels even complete beginners

BEGINNERS / INTERMEDIATE

for those who have been learning blues dance one year or less

MUSIC

Miss Mikey May and the Organ Grinders (ISR/CZ)

Miss Mikey May and the Organ Grinders (ISR/CZ)

Miss Mikey May is a powerful, soulful vocalist with a background in theatre, cabaret, burlesque, and social dancing. The Organ Grinders is her Hammond-organ focused Swing and Blues project, featuring some of Czech Republic’s top Jazz and Blues musicians. Their music explores (and sometimes crosses!) the outer limits of Swing and Blues music in a dancer-friendly package, and if you’ve seen them perform at dance events throughout Europe then you’ll know you’ll have a groovy great time!


Jamie Marshall (GB)

Jamie Marshall (GB)

British guitar player who was part of London music scene for more than 20 years. He has performed on both national and regional radio stations, played with Don McLean, Glen Hansard or British blues legend Long John Baldry. He has lived in Prague for a couple of years now.
