Blues History and Context

(2 hours with Mike) What Is Blues? This class will be a discussion of the history, aesthetics, and current state of blues dancing, and what blues really is (and isn't). We will talk about what some of the blues idiom dances are, what some of the families are, what exactly *is* an aesthetic, and then a positive compare-contrast with qualities that separate blues dances from other swing-related genres.
