What is Blues Dance?

Blues Dance is an American vernacular dance with a rich history growing up along side jazz, blues and swing music. Although Blues Dance is now taught in a formal setting in major cities around the world, it had less formal beginnings in juke joints and blues clubs in the South and the Midwest. In essence, it is a street dance, with its own lexicon that dancers use to communicate with their partners as they interpret the soulful blues music that's such a rich part Chicago's history. Learning to Blues Dance is a great way to begin partner dance as the emphasis is on connection and musicality rather than footwork or complex patterns. You'll be dancing by the end of your first class.
