Hey guys, we’re starting the podcast up again with Season 2. This time instead of doing instructor interviews, we’re changing the format to talk about blues dancing culture in its current form.

In this first episode of Blues Dance World Podcast we wanted to give an introduction to all of us, how we met, and how we got into blues dancing. Later we discuss our favorite moments of BluesSHOUT 2016 and Blues Experiment. We conclude with events that are happening this month in the national blues scene.
