ABOUT THE GROUP
Neil temporarily hosts the MoveGB account for the whole BLUE MONDAY group. Each week one of our variety of teachers, (headed by Tristan Brightman), teaches a lesson based on a specific hold or style, open to ALL levels.
We also encourage local dancers to teach and to DJ or help us manage the space. We aim to pay all a modest amount to share your time and skills and we run the group as a collective non-profit.
ABOUT THE CLASS
Every week we teach Blues at the beautiful upstairs room at Pata Negra (Corn Street, Bristol). It's an amazing dance conversation free of gender roles and is leader fluid! We have a range of ages and ethnicity at BM and we pride ourselves on being friendly, inclusive and fun to learn with.
FIRST MONDAY OF EACH MONTH IS A LONGER LESSON, COVERING ALL THE FUNDAMENTALS. AIMED AT NEW DANCERS!
This is all danced to Blue Traditional Blues music and alternative electronica. Check out our website for more info. http://www.bluemondaybristol.org/

COSTS AND MORE INFO
We support those in need and we keep our prices are as low as possible.
If you decide to pay cash £6 for class, or £3 for social only (just show up!) First timers half price! Bring a first timer and get half price.
If you are in financial difficulty we would rather you come and dance, rather than stay at home with the blues. It's an honesty system.
We believe in inclusive community - come be part of the night and get in free/paid depending on your involvement.
