TOMORROW, NOV 19: Learn to Switch Dance in a Day. It's almost upon us now!

Blues Night



Join us for great fun and great music – in a cool heart of the city venue.

Blues dance classes with some of Melbourne’s finest instructors, and free social dancing every week.


5:00pm – 6:30pm
*Monthly* Level 4
remaining dates for 2017: 29 Oct, 26 Nov
Cost: $22 cash per session (or 1.5 circles on your Class Discount Card)
No pre-bookings, simply come along and pay at the door.

On the last Sunday of each month, for an hour and a half, different teachers will be nerding out over a particular topic. As this is a nerd-out session, don’t expect copious amounts of moves. We’re going to be exploring a single concept and really digging deep into how that affects our dance (eg – How exactly do I step tap? How can my body move within that step tap? How do I communicate that with my partner?).

You’ll need to have quite a bit of blues experience to join this class. Alternatively, some blues experience mixed with a LOT of swing dance experience, so we can really spend the session nerding out. If in doubt, check with the teachers.


6:30pm: Level 2/3
For intermediate and advanced level blues dancers, who have been social dancing blues for many months. This class will be challenging and focus on the “art” of blues dancing.


7:30pm: Level 1
Total Beginners
Drop in any week, all welcome! For new people & experienced swing dancers who have never done blues dancing before. You will learn all you need to get onto the social floor, loads of moves & different styles.

8:30pm til late: Social Dancing
Enjoy great music, dance and socialize. The music ranges from rhythm & blues, blues & roots, slow swing, slow jazz, soul and a hint of gospel, trip-hop and more! Blues night often has the privilege of live music which adds amazing energy to the room. Expect good times.

Whether you’ve paid for a class or just come along for a dance, there will be no charge for social dancing from 8.30pm to great Blues music from local DJs.

See you on the dance floor!
