Included in your pass are two talks. Two Big City Blues inspirers will share with us their knowledge and experience on blues dancing. Not to miss!

The talks are also open for party pass holders.

Here is what you can expect:

12 Bars and Beyond with Charlley Ward

Saturday March 9th, 14:00 – 14:45, during the lunch break @ Danspunt

We will look at the structure of the Twelve Bar Blues and how to dance to it in the format of an informal old time Blues Houseparty: participants will be encouraged to move, sing, eat and drink and generally have a good time!

You will learn a bit about the Blues History of the East Coast of the US and how it varies from that of the Delta, Memphis and Chicago. You will also hear (live) Blues music and stories of the legendary African American Folk Hero John the Conqueror, who is mentioned in so many Blues Songs.

Be ready for a good time!

A Sea of Blue: Exploring the Depth and Range of Blues Music with Jamica Zion

Sunday March 10th, 15:00 – 16:00, after the lunch break @ Danspunt

Known for telling the good, bad, and ugly of life, The Blues is celebrated as honest and personal music. What else can we recognize as significant Blues contributions to music history, or even more broadly, life itself?

Join Jamica as she discusses some underappreciated themes and their potential impact if we entertain them!
