After Lukes amazing workshop in Malmö we immediately asked him cancel his tickets home and spend a weekend with the rapidly growing Danish Blues community. Luke gladly agreed to come and dance with us!
Luke will spend four hours dancing with us and we asked him specifically to "go out on a limb" and do something different and special with us. He's taken the challenge and will fly in to dance with us for three days and party with us for three nights.
"As a Dancer my goal is to make the person I’m dancing with want to dance with me again and again", Luke Weismann.
The first two hours of the workshop will be Lukes fantastic break down of moves which really would spark the creativity of even the best dancers. Then he'll go into musicality and finally he'll go out on a limb... Then we'll social dance a bit before we go party all night at Blues Club.

Luke has a warmth and humour to him which, coupled with his expertise and love of dance, brings out the very best in his students. I look forward to collaborating with him during his tour in Europe Spring/Summer 2013.
I really loved the amazing confident-zen-totally relaxed way the blues was taught Flore Fiore, Netherlands
Interesting and different insights, cohesive classes with a strong narrative & a solid overall aim. Craig, Scotland
Thanks for the patience and insights into blues dancing. I hope to continue dancing this magical dance and to meet you soon in the future… Finn, Netherlands
I really like [Luke's] clean, smooth, and non-flashy style. He can do awesome things but they’re planned at the right time to the music instead of randomly. I also really appreciated the open atmosphere to changing the lesson around what the students wanted to learn.
About Luke Weismann
Luke started dancing in 1996 and hasn’t been more than 100 yards from his dance shoes since.
There are three things that define Luke’s approach to teaching
- Creativity can be taught most easily in three steps – Imitate, Assimilate, Create.
- As a dancer, your main goal is to have the person you’re dancing with now want to dance with you again in the future.
- Everything physical that you have ever done, even the way that you walk informs how you dance and has prepared you for your next class.
