A Chat with Sundown Blues
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Our comprehensive curriculum will get you dancing in no time. In class, you will get personal attention from some of the top blues dance instructors in the world and the dancing community is incredibly warm and welcoming to newcomers.
What’s one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans?
Wear clothes you can move in and flats or low heels. Show up a few minutes before the lesson to check in with our front-desk staff and get oriented. And most of all, relax! We’re all just here to have fun.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Friday night blues was founded a decade ago to promote partnered blues dancing around San Francisco and the rest of the Bay Area. We love the emotion and energy of blues music and the connection experienced by the dancers. But even more than that we love introducing newcomers to blues dancing!
What do you love most about your job?
The best thing about being a dance instructor is getting to introduce people to something that most of them never thought they could do. Blues is one of the easiest dances to learn and the community is one of the friendliest I’ve ever seen. The best is seeing my students fall in love with the dance.
