We are honored to be bringing together instructors from all different types of social partner dancing styles that align with our vision.

🎵 Music
We have looked far and wide for the perfect DJs and musicians to be part of Dance Blender. All of them are versatile in what they play and are ready to have the music dance your socks off, for over 20 hours of parties across two rooms!
We will be having two rooms during the main party with changing themes every hour throughout the night. These themes are dance style agnostic and the majority of the music played will not be of a particular dance style, more details to come.
