Do you love dancing blues, do you want to explore in more depth the historical origins and the cultural evolution of blues dancing and music?

Would you like to spend a weekend of discovery with a community of equally curious people?

Come and join us in Amsterdam for The Blues College, where we shall gather a small crowd of blues enthusiasts who are ready to learn and experience more about blues.

Our teachers and organizers are working to create a weekend that:
