There are workshops that teach you about blues dances through topical classes broken down into discrete techniques, concepts, and movement qualities. This is not that workshop.

If you dance or are interested in dancing the blues, you WILL grow in this workshop through gaining a better understanding of the music and a deeper understanding of the blues in the context of Black American culture and history. Every concept, movement, and exercise will be framed with cultural context and history.
