Safer Spaces

Blues Dance New York is committed to making sure all of our events are Safer Spaces

What is a Safer Space?

A safer space is where a community works to make sure everyone who enters the community space feels safe, comfortable, and respected at all times. You should feel in control of your bodily autonomy at all times, and be comfortable with how others are touching you when dancing.

While we cannot guarantee that you will never feel uncomfortable at our events, we are committed to making them as safe and inclusive as possible and take all comments seriously. Please let us know if you have had a negative experience and we will do our best to understand and rectify the situation.

If you have a specific incident to report from Friday Night Blues, please contact Melissa S. Cohen. If you have an incident from another BDNY event, please contact the head organizer of that event. Check our out Staff page for all contact information.
