Blues Union is back for the new year and we’re starting it off big! We’re proud to be the unofficial Thursday venue of the Boston Fusion Exchange. This is so big, in fact, that we’re gonna need a bigger venue! For this night only, we’ll be at the Crosby Whistle Stop. And to contain it all, we’re going till midnight.

The Whistle Stop is located at 24 Roland St in Charlestown, MA.

To kick it off in style we have 2 instructors from the exchange: Ruby Red and John Joven of Chicago. You can check out their bios at:

Juke Joint Styling and Conversation (Intermediate, 7:30-8:15)
Beef up your basics with torso and hip styling. Learn the difference between isolation and connected movement and discover new ways to interpret the music and add complexity to your dance. With a flexible, attuned frame, you’ll practice adding to the conversation as a follow and listening as a lead.

Juke Joint Blues (Beginner, 8:15-9:00)
Learn the fundamentals of dancing at the Juke Joint from these BluesShout finalists! The connection is relaxed, the moves are pulsy, and there’s lots of room for improvisation play.

DJs will be John Joven, Devona Cartier, and Christine Moser.

And as always, the lesson is $5, and the dance an additional $5.
