Battersea Blues began because there is a dearth of dedicated, regular nights to blues dancing in London. Listening to fellow blues dancers bemoan the lack of opportunity to get out there on the dance floor, we decided to start our own night in the heart of London. We hope we can give more people the opportunity to practice, play and perform with blues music and blues dancing. We’re a not-for-profit, and we will pump the money back into the night to keep the community going, and to support the blues dance scene in London. We also donate a portion of the money gained from the events to charity (see Values).
