Drop Dead Blues

Who are we?

Drop Dead Blues (DDB) is a dance club at California Polytechnic State University, SLO. A sister club to CP Swing, we enjoy dancing and teaching “everything Blues” in our free time.

We host lessons every weekend, as well as free social dancing. Sticking true to the Blues vibe, our social dances happen in the evening, and we Blues the Saturday away. Our venue is open to both students and community members. Our lesson environment is easygoing, and new dancers are always welcome. Lessons at Beginner and Intermediate levels are offered, so dancers of any expertise have a place to learn new skills. We have been an official club since 2011. We also host a weekend-long Blues workshop every February, where we bring in super cool out of town instructors and spend a weekend dancing and learning blues.
