What do you do when you get the blues?

After reading this book, you're going to want to dance. Blues music is known as the soundtrack of heartaches and hardships, but the practice of singing, playing, or listening to the blues has always been used as a mechanism to transform tragedy into beauty. So it's no wonder that the powerful emotional response blues music evokes evolved into an intimate partner dance-with a global movement of dedicated followers.

For many, the dance has become not just an art but a powerful tool for self-expression, physical well-being, community building-and transformation. This book shares inspirational stories of thirty-six blues dancers from North America, to Europe, to India and even the Middle East. Learn how blues dancing has helped individuals:

-Overcome depression and social anxiety -Ease symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome/fibromyalgia -Experience relief from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) -Regain mobility after severe back and knee pain -Recover from divorce or relationship dissolution
