Time for our annual Open House!

This is a chance for you, local blues dancer, to tell us, folks on the Planning Board, what you want to see from Collectively Blue in the coming year. It's also a chance to learn about how we operate as an organization and why we do what we do, if you're curious about that.

There will be snacks and warm drinks, come hang out!
