The Blues College
Friday 1st to Sunday 3rd of February 2019
Duration: 3 days
Registration is open!!
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 enthousiasts 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.
The weekend will feature:
1,5 hour solo afro dance class
1,5 hour partner blues dance class
1,5 hour history lesson on blues culture and its social context
1,5 hour musicality and dance lesson
Three parties with live music
Whisky tasting (check out our cool whisky experts at https://therhythmandboozeproject.com/about-us/)
Saturday Soul Food Dinner

Be sure to mark it in your agenda's, we'll sell a limited number of tickets, as this is an event where we want to dig deeper into the community vibe of blues!
