THANK YOU FROM THE FRONT:

Last Saturday night was the best send off we could have imagined for Blues Liberation Front. The Unintentional Blues Event was pretty amazing.

Andy Lee and I (Jamie Leake) have been at this for the past eight years, and as we move on to bright new things in our lives we want to say thank you so much for all those who attended our dance over the past eight years.

Thank you to the huge list of every DJ, instructor and volunteer we’ve ever had. Special thanks to Taylor for working with our facebook posts and Kevin for helping to coordinate our volunteers.

Thank you to all the dances in the LA scene -- Do Something Blue, Lindygroove, Angel City Fusion, Tiny Dancers and more -- we'll see you out on the floor.

Thank you to Whitton Frank and Tim O'Neill for encouraging and training the LA Blues Dance scene back in the day. Thank you to Shawn Coyle for passing the location for his dance, The Juke, on to us eight years ago.

Thank you to all the incredible musicians who have made the music we love so much. You've made our lives better. We are grateful.

Keep dancing, friends.

VERY IMPORTANT NEWS FROM THE FRONT:

Friends, we want to let you know that Blues Liberation Front will carry on for the next three glorious months, till June 1st. After that, we’ll be shutting down the monthly dance.

It feels like the right time to move on and focus on other goals in our lives. Our dance has been going for eight years, and we’ve been honored and amazed by how many of you have come out to dance with us each month. We love the community that we’re a part of. We have no doubt that blues dancing in LA will continue and we’re excited to support it.

That said, we are so grateful to everyone who has supported us over the years — those of you who volunteered, who taught, who DJed, who baked pies for us, and for everyone who danced with us.

We will see you all for our final dances, April 6, May 4 and June 1.

Thank you, you beautiful people. Keep dancing.

Jamie, Andy and the BLF Team

In case some of you would like to join us in Denver this February. Lindy Diversion: Where Swing & Blues Meet is our crossover event with lessons in swing, Lindy Hop, blues, and tap dancing. Subsidized tickets are still available.
I'm in LA for the night, any swing or blues dancing going on??!!
Who can I talk to about getting more energetic and diverse music?
My phone hasn't been working so I won't be able to find my way back or there. Guess I can't go.
I am happy to know about you and expect to meet you personally this Jan 5th
I'm unbelievable happy to find out there's a blues dance community in LA!! I just moved here from Phoenix, and I'm missing my community something fierce
If you are in need of awesome music, dancing and people. Come out to Blues Liberation Front tonight. I am teaching the intro lesson at 8pm! Would love to see you there. I will also be doing a set later in the night!
What's the password for next Sat....?
