Gender Bender 2017 Recess Gig Harbor, WA
Gender Bender 2017 Recess 1/27/2017 City: Gig Harbor, WA, USA Dances: Fusion This year’s Gender Bender is about confronting and reconstructing our conceptions of gender and sexuality both in theory and in movement. Class material will have a political emphasis and much of it will not be movement-based. We will have discussion-based sessions in which groups collectively develop tactics to bring back to their home communities and we will have dance classes such as practicing non-dominant roles as a way of breaking down binary assumptions in dance and in life.

We also look forward to laughing over communal meals where we can talk about how to make our communities stronger, all in a warm cozy cabin. And of course we are super excited for glamming up, throwing down, and dancing all night to some phenomenal djs + live acts!

Mozambique Afro Swing Exchange 3/13/2017 City: Maputo, Mozambique Dances: Fusion Hodi Maputo Afro Swing is hosting an international dance exchange March 13-19, just before Mother City Hop in Cape Town! After the first edition in 2016 we are again exited about inviting international dancers to Mozambique to experience the culture, meet and dance with the local dancers and feel the energy of the swing kids. Enjoy the simplicity of the township and the peace and calm of the beachside village.

MASX is different from other exchanges, it is an invitation to an experience rather than to an event. It is an opportunity to leave a stressful daily life and feel the “Mozambican way”; people smiling from their hearts and enjoying the small things around them. Sometimes things goes exactly according to plans, sometimes it doesn’t, but believing that everything will always work out leaves a lot of stress behind and gives us perspective of our own lives. Activities and accommodation are included in the price and the group will stay together during the stay.

In Mozambique Hodi Maputo Afro Swing offers traditional Mozambican dance and drum workshops during the day and Afro Swing parties with at least two nights of live music. Four days will be spent in Maputo, the capital of Mozambique, three days at a beautiful beach not too far away from Maputo with the local dancers. The exact place will be announced.

This is an intimate event, the exchange is limited to 40 international dancers. Our local participants are around 50 people. Register at http://masx.org/registration.html

Some funds will help support the local dancers to participate in the event and all profit will go straight to Hodi Maputo Afro Swing and their local activities.

For more info see www.masx.org

• TABLE MOUNTAIN: Hike up one of many beautiful trails to the top of Table Mountain to see the Cape Peninsula from above and swing out on one of the 7 Wonders of the World. If you want to save your energy for dancing, take the cable car instead.

• HISTORIC CAPE TOWN: Cape Town is steeped in history and there are many must-see sites, including Robben Island, the District 6 Museum, and the historic Slave Lodge. We’ll follow this up with a picnic at the beautiful Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens.

• THE CAPE WINELANDS: Stroll through the Cape vineyards in the world’s longest wine route, tasting the local varieties. A relaxed day trip in the beautiful Stellenbosch area with wine and chocolate tastings.

The Process Richmond, VA
The Process 7/21/2017 City: Richmond, VA, USA Dances: Lindy, Solo Jazz The Process is dedicated to answering the question “What is the process guiding Lindy Hoppers to rapid improvement?” The Process addresses this question from both a dancer and an instructor perspective, with tracks for dancers and a track dedicated to instructors and organizers seeking to improve both the quality and quantity of dancing in their local scenes. What makes The Process unique among Lindy Hop events is that it does not focus on content, but rather on the process of learning, teaching, practicing, and performing!
