Street Parking There are many metered and unmetered spaces surrounding the studio, including residential streets. Some, if not all (?), of the meters are off by the start of the blues dance class and dance. Read all parking signs and follow all parking restrictions.

Nearby Parking Lots $5-7. Exact change only. Make sure you pay. They tow.

Note: There is NO street parking allowed in Pasadena between 2am and 6am except where posted otherwise. Though the dance ends at 1am we just want to make sure that you know to move your car before 2am if you’re parked on the street otherwise it could get towed.

*WHAT'S A STEAL DANCE?
A Steal Dance is when special* dancer(s) are invited to the center of the dance floor and other dancers steal them throughout the selected song. Steal them often and kindly, like when they are coming out of/leading a turn and you can easily grab their hand.
*Special at dSB means it is the dancer’s birthmonth, they are moving away, or visiting from out-of-town.

 

Carl-FloresWHAT'S THE BOW TIE DANCE?
The Bow Tie Dance is our tribute to Carl Flores, a SoCal dancer who was a warm and welcoming person known the world over. Carl loved dance, he loved to travel, and he loved to wear bow ties. He left us too soon and in honor of him our first song after the Out-of-towner/Birthmonth Steal Dance invites everyone back on the floor to dance with someone they have NEVER danced with before.It's our Bow Tie Dance - meet new people, make new friends.We miss you Carl!

Animal Shelter Wish List & Donations

do Something Blue | Blues Dance in Los Angeles | NC Jolie

dSB Founder and Organizer, Tracy, loves animals. As a volunteer at LA Animal Services from 2009-2015 and currently at the NKLA Adoption Center. She invites you to bring donations for the shelter to any of the monthly blues dances. Even the smallest item means a lot to the animals, especially your old (but clean) towels and bedding. Here are a few different ways (she'll drop off the items at the shelter for you!) you can help:

1) Bring in your old (but clean) towels/bedding or any other item from LA Animal Services' North Central Shelter's Wish List to any of dSB's monthly blues dances. Towels/bedding make nice soft surfaces for the animals at the shelter..and we go through A LOT of them (for sanitary reasons, they are often discarded when a new animal occupies the kennel)!

2) Choose Home Dog LA as the Non-Profit you support when making a purchase on Amazon (Smile). .05% of every qualifying purchase completed using Amazon Smile will benefit this life-saving organization that runs the Intervention Program at North Central Shelter. Find out more at http://smile.amazon.com/about and http://www.homedogla.org/

Also, if you’re interested in adopting a pet, please feel free to talk to Tracy about your options (adopt, rescue, foster, etc) at the blues dance!
