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.
