Swing Dance Luxembourg Asbl is organising the Duke’s Blues Festival from Friday 10 to Sunday 12 March 2023 at the Altrimenti cultural centre (5 Avenue Marie-Therèse, Luxembourg-ville) and the Art&Sport dance school (22 Rue de Hollerich, Luxembourg-Hollerich).
Duke’s Blues is dedicated to Blues dancing with live music and parties, inspiring couple and solo workshops, special topic classes and other surprises.
International teachers Alba Mengual & Gastón (Gas) Fernández will be on hand for couple blues dance, and Edmilson Botelho for solo blues and the solo mix&match classes.
Duke’s Blues is all about social dance and "groovy parties", so the finest blues tunes will be provided by Boris Tobasco & the Hot Shots for the opening party on Friday, and The Paradise Stompers for the Saturday night party
