What we're about

Have you always wanted to learn how to partner dance, but have never had the time, money, or interested friends? Check out Blues Dance New York! We offer low-cost beginner and intermediate group lessons every Friday evening before our dance social, as well as private lessons and workshops. Since everyone dances with each other, you don't need to bring your own partner - we promise you'll make friends and have a great time! You can even volunteer just one hour to get free admission for the night. We pride ourselves on being friendly, warm, and welcoming. It's more than a dance: it brings people together.

He is an extremely talented guitarist who travels the country playing Jazz and Rhythm and Blues. In the 70's and 80's he made his living playing bass for several bands in New Jersey, New York and South Carolina. He has shared stages with talented recording artists such as Lee fields, Roy Roberts, Denise lasalle, Bobby Rush, Jessie James, Tyrone Davis, and Chuck Roberson. He performs intensely at the Blues venues and festivals in the east coast for the past decade and has a large following in the Tri-state area. In 2010 and 2011, SaRon had the honor of opening up for Robert Cray and B.B.King on the big stages in Connecticut and won love from the audience with his acoustic performances. Saron's love is the Blues and he has been inspired by some of the greatest singers and players of all time, B.B. King, Albert King, Albert Collins, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Buddy Guy to name a few. SaRon plays a Gibson “Lucille” model guitar signed by B.B.King himself. He is a powerful entertainer and is never afraid to take his performance straight into the audience. ****************************************************************************** New to Blues dancing, or just to FNB NYC?
