What is Blues Dancing?
Blues dancing is a family of dances that reflect various styles of blues
music while all being tied down with foundational basics such as but not
limited to Groundedness, improvisation, polyrhythms and having a pulse.
These dances are a lot of fun and easy to get started with and become
more challenging as time goes on.
Why Should I learn it?

Cierra is known for being
a quirky, musical, and emotional dancer. A a child she was never able to
stop moving and became obsessed with Blues dancing after discovering it.
Her love of blues comes from her relationship with her grandfather and
the reconnection Cierra feels to her heritage while dancing the blues.
Cierra loves to bring that history, culture and context, into her own
and her student’s dancing by challenging their dancing in ways beyond
