Tables are unreserved.

Light food (veggies, dip, cheeses, meats) and water will be provided, and sodas will be available for sale as well as limited beer and wine.


Dancing to soul- and gospel-blues.

Pavel Tsinberg and Elizabeth Lynn Rakphongphairoj Kilrain will be teaching the lesson.

Please invite your friends and join us at 8pm! Each month we will tie the lesson topics for First Monday Blues Lab, the blues room at The Firehouse Swing Dance, and Blue Note together, so it is in your best interest to attend them all, though drop-ins are always welcome.


Born in Detroit, Michigan and raised in New York City, multiple award nominee, Missy Andersen is a dynamic and one-of-a-kind soul blues singer. Her sophomore album, In the Moment, received great reviews and ended the year on Living Blues Top 50 of 2014. She and her guitar player/bandleader/husband, Heine, maintain a busy schedule performing with her band and as a duo. The tenacious twosome’s music is noted as displaying “a musical maturity that is as entertaining as it is compelling” by PBS Australia and “the real deal” by Washington Blues Society.
A nominee of the prestigious Blues Music Awards for Soul Blues Female Artist in 2015 and 2016 as well as two-time Blues Blast Music Awards nominee, Missy was voted Best New Artist-Female in 2009 by Real Blues Magazine and her self-titled CD, Missy Andersen, also won Best Debut Album-Female that same year.


Party Fitness Studio is located just minutes from the I-8 freeway and San Diego State University.

As usual, we ask that you respect the space. Please make sure your shoes are non-marking and CLEAN so that you do not bring in debris from outside and mark the lovely floors! No spiked/narrow heels, please. Also, there is no food allowed inside, but we will set up our snacks and water station just outside the door so that you can cool off while you refuel.


In order to ensure that this event is safe, comfortable, and fun for everybody, please take a moment to read our etiquette page. By attending any Blue Note event, you acknowledge that you have read, understand, and agree to abide by our Code of Conduct / Grievance Policy.


#Staffing, #DJing, and #volunteering opportunities are available. All staff and DJs will be paid, as we believe that you should be compensated for your work. All volunteers will receive free admission to the dance with one hour of work. For more information, please visit and email (staff/volunteers) or apply *after* reading the requirements.


Blue Note is the brainchild of (Elizabeth Lynn Rakphongphairoj Kilrain) and friends. Our vision is to offer consistent venues and events for the exploration and development of the blues vernacular dances in San Diego. As the name implies, our focus is on the 100+ years of rich and living history of blues music and dancing, and that is the type of music and dancing that we offer.

Many existing venues in San Diego offer other dances alongside the blues. We enjoy many of those dances as well, and we offer a flier exchange to help you discover them. However, we believe that to really grow in understanding of a subject, you have to spend time immersed it. Blue Note’s mission is to explore, celebrate, and grow the blues dance community through musical immersion, classes, social dancing, and competition. Here at Blue Note, we are passionate about the blues and truly believe you will love it as well.
