About Us

Downtown Blues

All it takes is a little bit of love and passion for a Blues dance community to flourish.

Among the many dance communities in Dublin, only Downtown Blues is dedicated to Blues dance.
In November 2013 Downtown Blues was founded by Marta Martinho, Raphaël Desmaison and Rosie Van Den Broeck, three Swing dancers that craved for Blues Dancing in a town with so many talented Blues musicians but surprisingly lacking a dedicated dance community.
