Blues is a rooted and expressive dance that covers a wide range of emotions, moods and musical styles.

The Blues evolved from the African American music and dance tradition at end of the 1800s. Although the blues movement language is partly common to jazz dances, it has its own expressive aesthetic. In Blues, both the leader and the follower actively interpret the music.

There are many styles of blues music and forms of dance. Blues is, in fact, a family of many different dances.
