Learn to Dance

“I do not try to dance better than anyone else. I only try to dance better than myself.”

– Mikhail Baryshnikov


BDNY offers you three great ways to learn blues dance. Choose a combination that works best for you!

Group Classes

We offer group classes every Monday and Friday evenings! On Mondays, we offer beginner, intermediate, and advanced progressive blues series at You Should Be Dancing..! Studios.  On Fridays, we offer fundamentals and extended topics classes every week before Friday Night Blues.


We offer periodic practicas on Saturday afternoons where you can come and ask our instructors on call for advice and feedback.

Private Lessons

Private lessons are a great way to jump start your dance learning or refresh a forgotten skill. There is no substitute for intense 1-on-1 attention! Private or semi-private (bring a friend) lessons are available during weekdays and evenings. Learn more and book a private lesson here!


We are lucky to be based in New York City, and have the opportunity to host workshops with regional, national, and international instructors from all over the world. We do not currently have any upcoming workshops, but check back in the future!
