Two Blues dance workshop tracks with 5 hours of classes each are waiting for you at Winter Wonderland Blues:

  • Intermediate track
  • Advanced track.

What track is the right one for me?

Our teachers have provided a guideline for you to determine where you are standing:


You have taken blues classes before, dance blues socially and have attended a few (or more) workshops. You’re ready to develop your understanding of the blues, improve your technique and widen your dancing vocabulary!


You go to regular blues classes, have attended international workshops and you dance blues regularly. You have a sound understanding of the blues and solid technique and you’re ready for more!

What do I do if I am a beginner?

We recommend, get yourself a Party ticket and book a private class with Vicci and/or Adamo. When you are at the beginning of your journey into Blues dancing having a private class with lots of personal feedback from these great teachers will bring you from zero to hero.

Privates can be booked in the registration form.


From about Vicci Moore and Adamo Ciarallo:


(is dedicated to nurturing, developing, and promoting the blues scene in Europe. Thanks to his impressive linguistic abilities he can offer classes in English, Spanish, Italian and (passable) French!

Adamo has a professional qualification in teaching adults and he sees his role as teacher to facilitate the classroom in response to learner’s needs, enabling all students to achieve their potential. His classes focus on highlighting the relationship between the dancers and the music and the importance of personal expression and creativity.

He loves social dancing, teaching, competing, and listening to music, and spends his ‘spare’ time reading and learning about the history of the dance forms he loves so much.  What makes Adamo’s dancing life worthwhile is the commitment, enthusiasm, and energy of his students and everybody else in what he describes as “this beautiful community of dancers”.

In addition to teaching classes around the globe Adamo is the co-founder and organiser of The Blues Room online dance school, Bluesology Teacher Training (Valencia, Spain) , The Jump dance training (Valencia, Spain), Good Time Blues Fest (Guglionesi, Italy) and co-organiser of ESpanish Blues Festival (Madrid, Spain).



(pronounced Vicky, but spelt strangely!) is a professional dancer, specialising in blues dance.

Whether it is doing it, teaching it, watching it, researching it, performing it, filming it or talking about it, there is nothing Vicci loves more in the world than dancing! She trained in a number of solo dances before discovering partner dancing in her twenties, has a diploma in Anatomy and Physiology, a first class honours degree in Dance and Choreography, accredited training in teaching adults and a Masters degree in Education.

Vicci demonstrates this wealth of experience and knowledge in her classes, where she strives to help her students become ‘thinking dancers’, giving them the tools to create and improvise, and find their own voice in the dance.

In addition to teaching classes around the globe Vicci is the co-founder and organiser of The Blues Room online dance school, Bluesology Teacher Training (Valencia, Spain), The Jump dance training (Valencia, Spain), and co-organisers of ESpanish Blues Festival (Madrid, Spain).

As a teacher not from the African American culture that created Blues dance, Vicci is dedicated to educating herself about the history, cultural values and the social context of the dance in order to honour the art form and the people who created it. She strives to pass on what she learns in every class, as well as in her ‘Discover The Blues‘ blog.
