Let’s get back to the roots of blues and find out where this amazing dance form came from. Join us in February for classes focusing on African Roots movements, traditional blues, and the culture and history of blues dancing. We will be featuring special instructors every Friday to broaden your knowledge of blues dancing and teach you some very specific movements you can add to your dance vocabulary.
Join us at the Empire Grange this week as the Masonic Temple is under renovation.
