Blues Union’s mission is to cultivate a community around blues dancing, music, and culture in our local community. We aim to foster a culture of curiosity and learning, a culture of understanding and appreciation of blues dance, music, culture, and people–both where it came from and where it is today. Because blues dance is a Black dance, we also commit to center Black voices, to partner with Black musicians, scholars, businesses, and community members, and to use art as an in-road to social change.
