The Blues College 2019

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:

  • will get you thinking about how blues as a dance style, musical genre, and cultural phenomenon is defined
  • explores the relation between music, dance and history by bringing together experts, musicians and dance teachers, and
  • empowers you to express yourself through your dancing by understanding how others did that before you.
