Blues dances are street dances, but lessons and classes in a dance studio are extremely helpful as you learn to dance. More than one Atlanta dance studio or organization teaches blues dance classes on a regular basis. These are typically adult dance classes.
Blues dancing in Atlanta is mostly done as a social dance, and partner dancing happens around Atlanta up to several times a week. Solo blues dance is very much a thing, but while most Atlanta blues dance classes concentrate on partner dance styles, solo exercises can be used to build partner dancing skills.

Monthly Blues Dance Lessons
Terminus is a monthly Atlanta blues and social dance event that tends to offer both introductory and special topic dance lessons before the actual social dance. These will often be blues dance classes, but will occasionally cover other social partner dances.
