Food truck will be on-site. Food costs extra. Blues Dance Lessons
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. Come get a taste of this style as Matt Long and Jen Rush of Nova Blues dance community open the EBS April event with a rousing introductory lesson to Blues dancing. No previous dance experience necessary! Come out and be part of Edmonton's LARGEST blues dancing lesson.
