Virtual Friday Night Blues

Join each Friday night for an online solo blues lesson with one of our instructors. We will host a Zoom social dance with our regular DJs. We will update this page every week, and you can find information on our Facebook and Meetup Pages!

We will be conducting lessons and socials via Zoom. (Download the Zoom Client for Meetings version.) If the DJ shares their list after the dance, they will be Spotify or YouTube playlists.
