What is Blues Dancing?

Blues dancing is an umbrella term for a family of historical dances created by African Americans since the late 19th century which are danced to the various styles of Blues music. Most idiom dances fall into one of these three categories: solo, jookin’ & ballroomin’ blues dancing.
