Blues Dancing Lessons @ PhB

Powerhouse Blues (PhB) is a weekly blues dance held every Monday at the Adrienne Theatre near Rittenhouse Square. At the
beginning of the dance there is always a blues dancing lesson, fitting into a monthly series (see below). The first class of the month is drop-in
friendly and appropriate to new dancers (no experience required). Subsequent classes are appropriate for dancers who have taken the first class,
or beginner dancers who have taken multiple blues novice lessons at various LaB dances. Some series may have additional prerequisites, detailed in
the description below. If you’re not sure if a class is for you, you should always feel free to ask the teachers or
PhB organizers!

Novice Lessons: Every First Monday
The first week of every month features a drop-in novice class, on a topic related to the month’s series. No experience or partner required!

Check out our Facebook Group to see the events created for our weekly dances
(which will have information on the classes and series for that day/month) as well as posts regarding other events with blues dancing or music, community
events, updates, and more!

About PhB

PhB originated out of a passion for blues dancing, and a call from the community for more blues instruction and social dancing. Like all LaB projects,
PhB was created to support and encourage dancers of every level, and the folks who run PhB work to create a warm, welcoming environment at all of our
classes and dances. PhB takes place in a cozy theatre setting near Rittenhouse Square, Philadelphia. Our DJs play a variety of vintage and modern blues
in many styles and tempos, suitable for many styles of blues dancing.
