No. 8 Balboa near Wellington
No. 8 Balboa 3/24/2016 City: near Wellington , New Zealand Dances: Balboa Mar 24-28 'No. 8 Balboa' - near Wellington (2.5 hrs drive from the city), NZ
No. 8 Balboa, NZ's live-in Balboa retreat, will be running over Easter weekend 2016 - yay! There will be 15 dancers, 1 cook, 1 lodge, and buckets of dance geekery.
We're seeking expressions of interest from keen Balboa dancers: email us (Lauren & Andrew) at no8balboa@gmail.com
Three important notes. 1. You do not need to be an advanced Balboa dancer. 2. You do need to be willing to take a deep dive and participate in the collaborative workshops. 3. There may not be space for everyone who applies - there’s only room for 13 attendees.
Location: We’ll be at Wai Ngaio Retreat, just south of Castlepoint on the east coast of the lower North Island
(about 2.5 hours drive from Wellington).

All participants will be offered space and opportunity to contribute in powerful ways of their choosing to the full weekend production. Additionally, all participants in the Action Camp will be offered $70 off their ticket to the weekend Appalachian Recess event. The curriculum is designed to both inspire and challenge every participant. We will actively be working on the major projects we identify in our own communities, as well as the major projects that we identify in ourselves. This is a place to come and be humble, to learn, and to be a part of something both difficult and very special. We will spend portions of the weekend working on dancing our non-dominant dance role as well as talking about and workshopping some of the hardest hitting issues in the community. The event will have be one cohesive curriculum that all participants will move through together, combining dance, activism, discussion, and play. One of our main goals with this event is to not only help improve skills of people dancing outside of their primary role, but to do the work necessary to create a community that allows people to safely dance outside of their primary role, and as a whole to do the work to improve the overall safety and empowerment of our community.

WILLOW BLUES _ First Lodz Blues Exchange Lodz
WILLOW BLUES _ First Lodz Blues Exchange 4/15/2016 City: Lodz, Poland Dances: Blues If cities were dances, Łódź would be BLUES. This is why we want to keep our blues scene close to the urban tissue. So it touches the roots of the city’s industrial and multicultural history, and yet is a part of modern vibrant life and cultural growth.

But that's for you to find out... So come join us for the first blues dance exchange in the city of Łódź – the bellybutton of Poland (or have we just made that up?). Meet the ghost living in the old bricks of the old factories, remembering the greatest times when people of four cultures came to a small town of Łódź and created its greatness - new identity and unique atmosphere. It’s still there, believe us, waiting for you to explore it.

We are preparing a few surprising dance/blues-related treats, which will show you what the blues means to us… and of course you get:
- three nights of live music (+after party on Monday)
- three days of wandering around, eating tohether, meeting the ghosts of the old factories
- or just sitting under the willow tree, but… first things first.

Bal-Ast Off! Huntsville
Bal-Ast Off! 8/5/2016 City: Huntsville, USA Dances: Balboa A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away....

It was a dark time for Balboa in the south. The Eastern Balboa Championships had just proclaimed they would not return to fight for the alliance.

But then, from a small space port known as Huntsville Alabama, a call went out to gather the remaining forces and prepare for Bal-Ast Off! into the fray.

And from far and wide dancers have come, answering the call and preparing for the launch that can save the south and her people and restore freedom to the galaxy....

Errr... umm... in other words we're a weekend Balboa workshop in Huntsville Alabama, home of NASA's Sapce Camp and Rocket City USA, dedicated to the preservation of the vintage swing dance known as Balboa.

We think that Balboa is just about the best thing since the Jetsons and our goal is to help spread our joy for the dance, to infinity, and beyond!

The days will be filled with swimming and cliff-jumping in the flooded quarry pits and hiking in the thousands of acres of surrounding national forest! The nights will be filled with dancing in the circus warehouse, the Recess Bus, as well as the legendary floating dance floor that Recess helped custom built four years ago. This, all alongside the usual hallmarks of Recess: boundary-pushing Alt, Fusion, and Blues music bumping until well past sunrise and a radically inclusive ethic that can't help but inspire.

Octoblues Stuttgart
Octoblues 9/2/2016 City: Stuttgart, Germany Dances: Blues With a unique flair and many things to do, this place is worth an extended visit.
However, mostly we hope you will enjoy the gorgeous venue we found for you and get to dance with the local bluesers as well as some familiar faces from the Octoblues teaching history...

This year, we want to encourage our attendees to get even more active, and not just on the dance floor but on stage - if you play an instrument, this is the event for you to jam and shine.
