What is Blues Dancing?
Blues dancing is a family of social dances and movements that grew alongside the many styles of blues music throughout U.S. history. It includes historical dances done by Black & African-American communities to blues and jazz-blues music, as well as modern interpretations of many of those dances and movements.
Blues dancing is characterized by an improvisational spirit, rhythmic drive, emphasis on personal style, and a deep connection between dancers and the music.
On the dance floor today, you might see different dances like the slow drag, fishtail, funky butt, or struttin’, as well as a breadth of personal stylings on these dances, and a wide variety of improvisations.
