Virginia Jimenez


Director of Blues Dance New York – (she/her/hers)

Virginia learned to dance before she could walk. It’s the art form that she has known the longest, and her body knows more than her brain does. After moving to New York City in 2013, Virginia became more involved with blues dancing as a student and artist. She believes that dancing is the best way to be creative and expressive while building empathy and practicing safe, physical connection and communication. As an instructor, she believes that fun is a key ingredient to learning. She loves to share blues dancing in the most fun way possible, while also being informative and challenging students to own their dance.

Flouer Evelyn

Founder and former Director – (she/her/hers)

Flouer Evelyn has spent most of her life traveling the world performing and teaching a variety of dance genres, but she always finds herself back home in New York City. The concrete her bones, the subway her nervous system, and the people her white blood cells, she is thankful to embody this city, carving out beautiful spaces for community and partner dancing.

To this end, in 2011 she formed Blues Dance New York, through which she ran weekly dances & classes, taught workshops, organized, and DJ’d for 5 years. Nocturne Blues, a large National event, came next and ran from 2013-2016. Expanding & integrating into the other partner dance forms in her repertoire (Latin Ballroom, WCS, Zouk, Contact Improv, Lindy, etc…), she formed Fusion Dance NYC in 2013.

As her engagements out of town became more diverse, in the fall of 2015 she began to take a backseat in the BDNY organization, leaving it in Melissa’s capable hands (who then handed over responsibility to Virginia and Sabrina). These days, Flouer still has her hands full researching, teaching, and DJing Blues and Fusion full time, running Fusion Dance NYC, and hosting the occasional Blues workshop & party. Come find her on the dance floor!
