One of Austin Blues Dance's favourite events is happening again this year and we'd love to get our local dancers and friends across the nation to come experience it. After all, the Eastside Kings Festival is a Texas-sized blues bash: two days of 30+ blues bands playing in 8 venues (several bars, a couple parking lots, and even under the tin shed in an auto-repair joint), all within a single block in Austin. For only TEN DOLLARS A DAY. How could you miss it?

So to make sure everyone feels ready to dance to all this great live music, we figured we'd host a workshop dedicated to learning how to dance to live music. We've invited Cierra Ruffin (Denver, CO), Kenneth Ship (St. Louis, MO), and Julie Brown (Boston, MA) to Austin for a one-day workshop and all it costs is a donation of any amount to H.O.M.E. — an amazing charity that helps house Austin's living legends! Classes will take place from 1:30pm to 6:00pm at Balance Dance Studio.

About H.O.M.E. (Housing Opportunities for Musicians and Entertainers)

HOME is a 501©(3) tax-exempt non-profit organization that strives to create more security for aging musicians of the Austin, Texas, music scene, by pursuing low-cost housing for them, and providing other assistance, including referrals to other available resources. The performers who put Austin on the musical map have spent most of their careers working without a safety net. As they age, the fall from the tightrope becomes increasingly perilous.

Their mission is to provide housing aid and assistance for musicians. HOME works to channel the generous donations of those who love Austin music toward easing those challenges.

Their primary recipient of assistance thus far has been the incredible blues and soul singer & songwriter Miss Lavelle White — who you can hear play every Sunday at Antone’s.
