"When the music changes, so does the dance." -African Proverb

We love variety, so we partner dance to many styles of music, exploring different styles of movement to go with it. To blues music we dance blues dances. To other music we branch out and explore AltDancing.

We play a mixture of blues music and a wide range of other types of music that's fun to partner dance to. Our classes reflect our variety- many of them are blues dance classes, and others are on topics including Lyrical Partnered Dancing, Stealing movements from Tango, Partner Connection, and beyond. Check out the page for this week's topics. There are two 8:30 classes for you to choose from- a beginning or all-levels class, and an all-levels or int./advanced class.

Haven't danced before? Please come check it out! No partners needed- during class we rotate. Please wear dance shoes, socks, or non-gripping shoes with clean soles. No stilettos, please- they grind into the venue floor. Sometimes it gets warm- if you tend to sweat a lot, consider bringing changes of shirt. Go light on the perfume, and remember the deodorant. All ages welcome.For more information about volunteering, DJing or teaching, or for general questions, please contact Ruth at
