Slowdown Weekend 2018 teachers: Marcel and ThereseMarcel and Therese are blues dance teachers based in Brisbane, Australia, with 30 years of dance experience between them. They have been teaching blues dance regularly at Dance the Blues since 2016, when they cofounded the school along with partners Brian and Sheryl. Marcel and Therese have travelled around Australia, and as far as America and Europe, to develop their skill and understanding of Blues dancing. Marcel and Therese believe that partner dancing, any partner dancing, is all about connection; with each other and with the music that is playing. In their classes they strive to develop the technique required to dance comfortably and safely with each other, while not losing sight of the music that we’re dancing to.
