COVID-19 Information

Please see our protection concept before joining.

Refresh or learn the basics of Blues Dancing in this workshop.

Blues dances are a family of dances originated in Afro-American communities at the beginning of the 20th century. Like the music, the dances are diverse and soulful.

You like blues music but you’re not sure if blues dancing is your thing? You already had a taster but it was too short? You would like to join the regular classes but have never danced blues before? Or you just want to refresh your basics?

Then join us and immerse yourself into blues dancing. We will focus on learning the fundamentals of blues dancing and give you some tools to get ready for the classes.

Classes will be taught in English. Registration without partner is possible. You are welcome to bring our own partner and not switch between other people as well.

We are excited to dance together!

Registration is open for 2022

Your teacher

Bianca and Limi

Limi started enjoying Blues when he was playing the violin about 15 years ago. Only later in 2017 in Australia he discovered Blues Dancing during a Lindy Hop festival. Very excited about the fact that you can also dance his favourite music he went back to Zurich to attended as many Blues workshops in and around Switzerland as possible. Not long after, Limi joined the Bluesli organizers with the goal to bring the joy of Blues dancing to as many people as possible.

Bianca has more than 15 years of experience in different dance styles, but it’s in 2016 that she became addicted to swing and blues dancing, starting to travel to festivals all over Europe and to teach locally in Italy.

Bianca and Limi have been dancing together in Zürich for a few years and both have a passion for sharing the magic of blues dancing in the local community. They attended the “Bluesology” blues teacher training with the international dancers Adamo and Vicci in 2019 and are now teaching together to get more and more people addicted to blues. Their mantra is all about what feels good in dancing, from finding a good connection with the partner, to making more or less fancy moves your own – until when they feel great.
