Classes

Wanna learn to dance Blues from scratch, or expand your skills? Then you’ve come to the right place!

At The Blues Joint, we offer weekly classes, monthly drop-in workshops, and private sessions with our teachers.

If it’s your first time dancing blues, you can join our monthly Saturday taster, the Fundamentals class (see below), or book a private. See more here.

Weekly classes

We’re currently teaching weekly classes in two levels. After taking Fundamentals I & II, running for 8 weeks each, you will have learned the basics, and be ready to join our second level, “Mo’ Better Blues”. In this level, we get in-depth one or two themes each block, starting off easy, but always providing a challenge for the more experienced dancers. A more detailed description of the classes can be found here.

The price for one block is € 60 for 8 one-hour classes. If you take both levels at the same time, you will receive a 30,- discount. In 2019, our schedule is as follows:

  • Block 1 (February 13 – April 4): Mo’Better Blues (7:15 pm), Fundamentals I (8:30pm)
  • Block 2 (April 11 – May 29): Mo’Better Blues (7:15 pm), Fundamentals II (8:30pm)
  • Block 3 (September – October): Mo’Better Blues (7:15 pm), Fundamentals I (8:30pm)
  • Block 4 (November – December): Mo’Better Blues (7:15 pm), Fundamentals II (8:30pm)

After the classes there will be a chance to practice your new moves and techniques in our weekly social dance The Blues Juice, free for all.

Monthly workshops

Every four weeks we have a whole Saturday of Blues dancing. Starting with afternoon workshops, evening beginner class and an amazing party with live music!

We have three two-hour workshops for you and they will be theme based. You can subscribe for each workshop separate, or join more workshops on the same day. Party ticket for the evening is always included.
