TUES FEB 21 at 7 PM Blues U with Tanya and Dan! What is Blues U? Blues U (short for “Blues University”) will be much like Lindy U and Balboa U at Cat’s Corner. The goal of Blues U will be to create a learning group that will develop together with the help of blues coaches. The program will be based on the individual needs of each member of the group. The first Blues U session will last 12 weeks, with the possibility to continue in the following session. Blues U is not a regular course, it is a working group that develops based on its own needs and dance goals, with the help of the coaches. For example, it could include things like work on solo movement, connection, musicality, social dancing, feedback sessions with coaches and peers, learning the opposite role, learning choreography, performing, etc.. We will have a Facebook group for Blues U in which you and the Cat’s Corner teachers can share videos, tips and practice material, or events that could help Blues U dancers in their journey. In short, if you want to push your dance, work in a group of your peers and grow together, and get a tailored learning experience, Blues U is for you! Tuesday evenings at 7-8:30pm, starting February 21st with teachers Dan and Tanya! @ Cat's Corner 3451 Boul. St-Laurent, 3rd floor, Montreal, Qc https://www.facebook.com/events/359065071142542/

Fri Feb 24 Sam Kirmayer - Hommage à Wes Montgomery. Wes Montgomery is widely recognized as one of the most important jazz guitarists of all time.

Thurs Mar 2 Bharath and his Rhythm Four is a Montreal based blues band that has won plaudits from some of the greatest exponents of the genre. Their time-stamped authentic style, purist approach and incomparable energy, is inspired by the great American bluesmen who once scoured the juke joints of Chicago and the Midwest. Faithfully disciples of Muddy Waters, Little Walter and their cohorts, the band manages to keep the tradition alive without resorting to mere mimicry. 8pm: $10; 9.15pm: $10; 10.30pm: Free
