Frequently Asked Questions

What the FAQ?

Most common questions about memberships and courses are available here. If you have something else in mind, reach out to us with any query.

  • How does the Premium Membership feedback work?

    You will receive 6 one-to-one feedback sessions per year with either Adamo or Vicci. These will be provided on an online platform (Zoom or similar) and each feedback session will last 45min. You will receive personal feedback on your dancing, have a chance to ask questions and be set projects to help you develop further.  To give you flexibility and control over your learning you will be sent a calendar of available dates and time slots so you can choose when to book in for one of these feedback sessions.

    If you still have questions please feel free to contact us directly at hello@thebluesroom.com. We’re happy to chat!

  • Is The Blues Room suitable for beginners?

    Absolutely! We have a ‘Beginners Survival Kit’, specially designed for new dancers. Once you have completed all the courses in the Survival Kit you will be ready to try any of the other categories. All other courses are suitable for intermediate level dancers and above. All courses begin with more basic techniques and moves and progress in difficulty throughout the course.

  • Is The Blues Room suitable for advanced dancers?

    Of course! Although advanced dancers may be familiar with some of the moves and techniques that are taught in the classes, there is always more to learn! Advanced dancers can enrich their vocabulary, get new ideas for combining moves, refine their fundamental techniques, pick up new tips and techniques, improve their solo and partnership skills, and develop their style. Dancers who are teaching or interested in teaching can discover new ways of breaking down and explaining moves, practice exercises that can be used in classes, and collect lots of new ideas for class content.

  • What if I don't have a partner?

    Not a problem! We have a whole series of solo blues courses and solo blues choreographies, plus all the Practice With Us sessions and Top Tips are suitable for training solo. Many of the partnered classes also contain tips and techniques that can be practised solo. So if you don’t have a partner don’t let it stop you!

  • Woah! So many classes! Where should I start?

    The Blues Room offers you flexibility, so you are in control of your learning. You can choose whichever course interests you the most, however we do have some recommendations…

    If you are new to blues dancing then you should start with the Beginners Survival Kit. These courses will give you all the information you need to get out there and enjoy yourself on the dance floor.

    For all other levels – improver, intermediate, advanced, masters (whatever label you like to use!) – we highly recommend starting with the Essential Skills category. The techniques and ideas explained in this series will underpin the majority of all our other classes.

    Other than that you are free to choose your own adventure!

  • Can I cancel my membership?

    If you select the ‘Rolling Membership’ then you can cancel your membership at any time. Your user account will remain active but limited to a basic level. We will occasionally reach out to you with updates, offers, special tips and other news. If you want to completely shut down your account just send us an email and we’ll remove you from all mailing lists and permanently erase your account.

    If you select the ‘1 Year Membership’ or the ‘Premium Membership’ then you can cancel your membership after the 12 month period has finished. When your membership is coming to an end we will contact you to let you know so you can choose if you want to cancel the membership or renew it for another 12 months.

  • Can I download the videos?

    No, sorry. The videos are only available online via internet connection.

What people are saying about The Blues Room

Student Stories

Students of The Blues Room have used the courses to progress their solo and partnered dance abilities and technique. And they've had fun doing it!

Great introduction to traditional blues


Precise, clear instructions for both leaders and follows. Everything is taken step by step so at no point was I lost when using the materials. Things are properly structured too, with courses for dedicated subjects that facilitate efficient learning. Also, it doesn't hurt that Adamo and Vicci are really adorable (the accents <3) and have great chemistry together so it's a real treat to watch them present the material.

The best online dance classes


The best online dance classes. Tutorials for all levels, very detailed and well explained. We have renewed the subscription for another year because it is worth it. Highly recommended.

Best online source for your blues dance training


Best online source for your blues dance training. From absolute beginning to quite advanced stuff, for both solo and partnered dance. One year is definitely not enough to learn all. Really enjoying it :)

Very professional content that allows good progress while having fun!


Very professional recorded videos and well structured courses with good side notes as prerequisites one should be aware of, further reading about history and context and music playlists to practice to. But most important, they are awesome teachers, where one can make good progress while having fun at practice.


Awesome classes


Awesome classes, great events, funny teachers... In one easy online form. It was great during the quarantine, and it's still great to keep up practicing at home, in far away Tromsø, where there no scene

Recommended classes with infinite material!


If you haven’t subscribe, then I really recommend it. Why? Because there are plenty of classes, like over 100s of material explained with fun and detail and to hook you as a student (and also could help as teacher ad well).

Definitely recommend Vicci and Adamo


Vicci and Adamo have a wealth of experience and knowledge that they share in a really fun and accessible way. I definitely recommend the Blues Room.

A lifesaver in lockdown, and now a thorough necessity for any keen dancer


I can't begin to explain how much of a gem The Blues Room is. The Blues scene is definitely not as big where I live as the Lindy Hop scene, and so having the opportunity to have more lessons and dance tips has been amazing. I was (happily) surprised by the extra online live lessons that Vicci and Adamo run, from which I have learnt so much about the history of the dance and the different styles of Blues dancing out there. The online recorded sessions are easily to follow along to, and I love the way I replay a video into I've got the move. There is such a gamut of Blues styles on there too; I love the Latin Blues classes in particular as it's a style that's not regularly taught in drop-in in-person lessons. A lifesaver in lockdown, and now a thorough necessity for any keen dancer.


Blues ist eine Lebenseinstellung


Durch eine Freundin kamen wir auf den Bluesroom. Seitdem lernen wir in unregelmäßigen Abständen nach den Videos. Uns begeistert besonders die immer freundliche Art von Vicci und Adamo, die professionelle Ausführung der Videos und das für uns sehr passende Tempo. Hoffentlich schaffen wir es einmal wieder zu einem Live-Workshop...

Blues culture online


I've been a member of The Blues Room for two years and it's kept me moving and smiling through tough times. I especially love the workshops because they make it possible to connect with many dancers around the world, catch up with friends and learn from some brilliant teachers. The classes on the site are great as well, there's a lot to learn for couples and solo dancers alike. It's embedded in a cultural knowledge that gives me a better appreciation of the music and the dance.

Blues indoors and out


Discovering that you could dance the Blues came as a surprise and quickly became addictive. Discovering The Blues Room and the work of Adamo and Vicci was fantastic because I can learn while at home, in an organized and easy to use way. “Seeing you dance is an inspiration, thank you for your dedication” SC, Portugal

The Blues Room is the place to meet blues dance lovers


It is very easy to use The Blues Room website. The classes are very complete and easy to follow. There is also a wide variety of steps for all levels, single and partnered, and it is a joy to dance along with Vicci and Adamo who take their time to explain in a very good mood, a joy which simply goes through the screen. You can ask for feedback, doubts, whatever you need to know about the blues. Not to speak about the Workshops with international teachers and researcers of blues dance and history, another extra point why I love the Blues Room. I will soon start my third membership renewal.
