Starting January 2020, after 13 years of hosting do Something Blue on a monthly basis, our team has chosen to transition it to a quarterly event (Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall).
As the operators of the longest running blues dance in Los Angeles who whole heartily enjoy sharing our love of blues dancing with the community, this was a rough decision. Ultimately we hope it will help build and fuel Los Angeles’ dance community’s excitement for this beloved social dance style. After all, who’s to say we don’t return to monthly?
Since hosting it quarterly is a new format for us, we appreciate your patience as we determine the specific dance dates. When dates are decided, you’ll find them here. Of course, we hope to see you at our Spring Dance, Friday, May 29 — Soul Night!
