Many people confuse Blues with Fusion so let me give you my definitions of both before I send you off to learn about something different from what you are actually interested in.

If you are looking to learn Social dance skills to be able to dance with all styles of dancers to a wide variety of music (including but not limited to Blues), sickness
I call this Fusion. Fusion can be done within any one dance form (Blues, Lindy Hop, Salsa, Tango, etc) &/or it can be used to create new forms of dances that have yet to be discovered. Fusion is not a dance as much as a way of dancing, organizing dances, &/or teaching dance.  The way I dance, teach, & organize dance events is all based off of the concept of Fusion.  To learn more about Fusion,

Check out my Fusion blog

Blues (in my definition) is a social dance done to many different styles of Blues music. I do teach a couple basic Blues classes but I do not consider myself an authority figure when it comes to Blues, so I will defer you to the following websites for a fuller description of What is Blues?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blues_dance

http://www.blues-dance.com/aboutbluesdance

Again, be aware that some people use the term “Blues” for what I consider “Fusion” & vice versa.  Double check what they mean before making assumptions.

What is Fusion Dancing? = Social Partner Dancing

something to ponder: What if dancing weren’t about having the perfect dance but rather… what if dancing were about getting to know someone? Getting to know what inspires them, ampoule how they hear the music, more about what are their quirks that make them who they are. Sharing with them what inspires you, arthritis how you hear the music, and what your quirks are that make you who you are. Then meshing those personalities together to create a unique conversation that only the two of you could create together. If we make dancing about getting to know someone, wouldn’t that allow for every dance to be perfect in it’s own way? (inspired thru conversations with Yvette Lee)
