Welcome to our online learning resources area, designed to help you get the most out of your classes and give you more insight into the history and culture surrounding blues dance.
Blues dance is intrinsically linked to the music and rooted in history. Although the dance, like the music, has changed over the years we believe that to fully understand blues dance you must learn about and respect the history of the music and the dance. Here are some of our favourite books, films and documentaries to help you discover more about the blues.
Welcome to our new monthly blog! Discover the Blues will include articles about blues history, our thoughts on current topics, interviews with musicians and dancers, recommendations and links to videos and documentaries and more. Plus every month we will send you a playlist of music to enjoy at home.
