What is Blues Dancing?
Blues Dance is a group of vernacular dances which developed alongside Blues music in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Finding its roots in African dance, Blues Dance draws inspiration from the grounded aesthetic and layered movement. This form of dance is largely improvisational and is based on the connection between the dancer and the earth. Musicality, personal movement, and connection to the dancer’s emotion are aspects that make Blues Dance unique.
Here’s a sample of Blues music!
