You'll also learn advanced techniques of movements and musicality to help you bring out the emotions into your dance.


WHAT'S SO SPECIAL ABOUT BLUES DANCE?
Blues Dance can be slow or fast, and somewhere in-between. But importantly it brings out the emotions from Blues Music into your dance: sad, joy, grief, love, oppression & passion. You'll learn the over century-old history and roots of Blues Dance with techniques & moves from the African influences to the urban house rent parties to modern day late night dances seen at swing dance events. Blues dancing developed over a century into a style of its own.

Pure emotion.

Many people come to Blues dancing already familiar with one or more other styles of partner dance, including Lindy Hop, West Coast Swing, Argentine Tango, and even Ballroom. Fusion is the practice of taking any of these varying styles and combining them in different ways to create something truly distinct, yet compatible with other dancers’ styles. We welcome the opportunity to break out of traditional ideas of partner dance, including set moves, lead and follow gender roles, or even that there is a set lead and follow.

Bring Munchies to share! Chips, dips, cookies, brownies, etc.
