Blues dancing

Blues dance is an African American vernacular dance that developed alongside blues music in the Deep South of the USA in the late 1800s and early 1900s, and is still evolving today. Like the music, blues dance is not just one style of dance, but a family of blues idiom dances.  Born from slavery, blues music and dance embody African American cultural values.
