Who is Amy and Friends With Benefits?
Amy Kucharik, a talented singer/songwriter from Somerville and familiar face around the Boston dance scene, is a dancer’s dream musician. On her ukulele, she has immense musical range and her influences range from ragtime blues, country, and folk, to reggae, funk and infectious, danceable swing. Her band, Friends With Benefits, will have you on your feet in no time. The songs are catchy and sexy, and we invite you to listen closely to Amy’s witty (sometimes dark-humored) lyrics.
Check out Amy’s latest album, “Cunning Folk” at amykucharik.com.
Why “Bread and Bones”?
It’s the title of a brilliant Amy Kucharik song off her EP, “Dance Crush Blues.” Take a listen and you’ll know why we chose it for our theme.
Tell me more about Fusion dancing!
Fusion is partner dancing that freely combines multiple dance aesthetics and musical genres. It means time to bust out those Tango, Ballroom, Salsa, Swing, Blues, etc. moves. Partner connection and musicality are key. Want to learn more? Check out the complimentary lesson at 7:30 p.m.!
