The theme for this year is "What is Blues?" and we have updated our class level descriptions and class topic categories with that in mind.
The blues scene has grown in size over the past many years, but also in depth. We are so excited to see interest in delving in to the rich cultural variation that we see within our beloved blues dance. We understand the importance of not losing the big picture, so we'll aim to focus some classes, but also to keep in touch with blues dance as an American art form that crosses boundaries and has reached the whole world.
We will have musicians in the classroom this year, and some unconventional approaches to your learning. We are asking our instructors to try out new ideas for sharing blues idiom dance with you in both the broad sense, and also the specific regional approaches.
