About Powerhouse Blues
Powerhouse Blues is a weekly social dance in Philadelphia, PA. We meet to dance the blues, an improvised social partner dance done to Blues music. With weekly lessons and social dance parties, we celebrate the living history and expressive variety of the Blues. Powerhouse Blues strives to be an inclusive and diverse community open to all regardless of age, race, gender, ethnicity, sexuality, ability, experience, background, or lifestyle.
We welcome dancers of all experience levels!
The PhB Committee is monitoring the Coronavirus Outbreak and will follow the City of Philadelphia and the State of Pennsylvania's recommendations regarding large gatherings during this disease. Please follow the guidelines below:
1. Practice good health habits: Wash your hands, cover your face with your elbow when you cough or sneeze, avoid touching your face, and avoid sharing food.
2. Stay home when you are sick and avoid sick people: If you feel ill you should stay home and avoid getting others sick, a six foot radius of space is the current minimum safe distance.
3. Avoid contact with germs: This includes avoiding shaking hands and hugging. If you still want to attend dances and dance solo, please feel free to do so. Clean your phones, and avoid touching door handles and elevator buttons.
We will be encouraging everyone to wash their hands when they arrive at the dance, after classes, and at announcements, as handwashing is our strongest defense. Please check out the below resources if you have any questions or want to learn more:
