Blues dance, like Blues music, is soulful, expressive and rhythmic: it can be the perfect way to celebrate the end of a work week, meet new people or just groove to whatever the band is playing! Originating in the United States in the late 1800s, Blues dance has recently been embraced anew by communities across North America for its versatility and emphasis on connection between partners. More info, contact Matt Long or Jen Rush of Nova Blues dance community. No previous dance experience necessary!
