Beginner Blues

Often danced within the same scenes as swing, Blues is not a swing dance style. Rather, the term "Blues" encompasses a family of dances stemming from African rhythms and movements, and the days of slavery. It flourished in small juke joints and house partiesgiving it the intimate characteristics which we see today. In Blues dancing the emphasis is mostly on your connection with the music and your partner, and improvisation.
