Dance the blues with us upstairs at 16 Bow St, in Union Square, Somerville! 

Blues Union has classes, dances, and community open studio time every Thursday night!

We are keeping our covid-19 vaccination and masks requirements, to ensure more vulnerable community members can join us on the dance floor too!

Check our Facebook group to see what’s happening this week at Blues Union.

Blues Union’s mission is to cultivate a community around blues dancing, music, and culture in our local community, and to use art as an in-road to social change.

Blues dance is a family of Black American social dances (some solo, some partnered) that developed alongside the different styles of Blues music, starting in the early 20th century and extending through today. Each dance was shaped by the music, the people, and the settings in which it developed.

There is still much work to be done to fight racism and to learn, support, donate, volunteer, and work towards liberation and equity for Black people in the U.S.
