Herräng Dance Camp 2019 Herräng
Herräng Dance Camp 2019 6/29/2019 City: Herräng, Sweden Dances: Lindy, Balboa, Solo Jazz, Shag, Boogie Woogie Herräng is since many years the world's most comprehensive and exciting swing dance festival focusing on vernacular American dances from the Golden Age of Jazz. The event, which started back in 1982, is somehow centered around the illustrious Harlem born Lindy Hop, but is also willing to present other dance styles popular during the same era, as well as pre-swing and post-swing dances and music. Historically, we have been willing to flirt with fad dances as far back as the late 1800s, but we have also been willing to hold hand with styles of the 1950s. We somehow believe that all these satellite dances have something to say and add to complete the picture of traditional American swing dancing of the first half of the 20th century.

Scotland Invades Inverness 7/5/2019 City: Inverness, United Kingdom Dances: Fusion Scotland's favourite travelling Blues Dance event is back! And this time its heading North!
Inverness' Highland Swing are super-excited to host this 6th outing of Scotland Invades.

What is Scotland Invades? - A series of events aiming to foster connections within and celebrate Scotland's Blues dance scene.

At each event Scotland's Blues Dance community invade (in a friendly way) a host city for a weekend of dance revelry. We aim to make this event as affordable and accessible as possible.

Where is Inverness? - Up North. But its not as far as you think. There are roads, and public transport and electricity. We promise.

What is Blues Dancing? - Blues dancing is a family of historic African-American dances that developed alongside Blues music. It is a partner dance with strong emphasis on improvisation, rhythm and poly-rhythms and solo movement.

Who is this event aimed at? - Everyone. Whether you've never danced blues before or are a blues addict we would love to see you there. There will be beginner friendly classes during the weekend, so this is the perfect opportunity to give it a go.

Schedule:
Classes - Five hours of beginner -friendly Blues Dance classes, taught by some of Glasgow's finest Ewa and Malcolm. Ewa and Malcolm regularly teach Blues dancing in Glasgow. In their classes they like to emphasise strong fundamentals, switching lead and following and fun!
Classes will be taught 'switch' allowing you to learn both the lead and follow role in the same lesson, and therefore dance with everyone!

Parties - Get your dance shoes ready and your party pants on cos we are going to PAR-TAY!
On Friday night we'll have a welcome party to catch up with old friends and meet new ones. On Saturday we'll have some more bluesy goodness and live music, and then will be taking the fun into the wee small hours with a fusion afterparty. On Sunday we'll be seeing the weekend out in style with a cake-fuelled tea dance.

Plus other Invernessian activities in store - including dancing on the shores of Loch Ness!

Where do I sign up? - Tickets £22 for the entire weekend, lessons and parties. Available below at https://highlandswing.dancecloud.com/dance/23274

Seravezza Blues Camp 7/11/2019 City: Seravezza (LU), Italy Dances: Blues Musicians and dancers together.
The most authentic Blues culture offering in Europe.
This will be a unique and special event to enable self-improvement and development in your understanding of Blues dancing and music. The original pioneers of Blues music were born and raised in close proximity within the confines of close-knit communities. It can be of great educational and spiritual value when we, as blues dancers and musicians, start from this principle to express ourselves in our best light, namely to learn about and experience the Blues together.

The event is focused on
-group experience and learning
-gaining a deeper appreciation of different styles
-creating and developing a dialogue between musicians and dancers

We will dig deeply into the correlation between dance and music, between figures and harmony, between movement and rhythm.

Herräng Dance Camp 2019 Herräng
Herräng Dance Camp 2019 6/29/2019 City: Herräng, Sweden Dances: Lindy, Balboa, Solo Jazz, Shag, Boogie Woogie Herräng is since many years the world's most comprehensive and exciting swing dance festival focusing on vernacular American dances from the Golden Age of Jazz. The event, which started back in 1982, is somehow centered around the illustrious Harlem born Lindy Hop, but is also willing to present other dance styles popular during the same era, as well as pre-swing and post-swing dances and music. Historically, we have been willing to flirt with fad dances as far back as the late 1800s, but we have also been willing to hold hand with styles of the 1950s. We somehow believe that all these satellite dances have something to say and add to complete the picture of traditional American swing dancing of the first half of the 20th century.

Solo, couple and exploration dance classes are offered to develop the tools you need to find your voice and define your dancer's identity. The competitions, the show, the discussions, the music and dance nights are as many occasions to fill up with inspiration !!! CELEBRATE - EMPOWER - UNDERSTAND - EXPRESS !! We intend: To offer great opportunities for dancers expressing and celebrating the follower role To develop leader skill level in creating exceptional moves and movement based on the connected partnership inherent to our dance To provide a medium for the expression, empowerment, and development and celebration of women's place in the swing community We intend to create spaces for developing one's individuality for all who wish to invest the follower's role. The goal is to define and express Jazz dancer identities, knowledge of the solo and couple formats for social dancing and/or performance in a fun and empowering environment emphasizing inclusiveness. Most importantly, we wish to do all of this while considering the realities that women specifically face in our community and the ways in which men can complement, understand, celebrate and support them.

Brothers in Jazz Madrid
Brothers in Jazz 1/17/2020 City: Madrid, Spain Dances: Lindy If you add to your recipe some lindy hoppers, a pinch of tap dancers, a slurp of break dancers, a cup of great musician, and a handful of cool DJs you obtain a great delicious party called Brothers in Jazz. We like to share the same dancefloor and mutually inspire us, because we learn from each other and inspire each other, so our own dance gets enriched. These dance styles are branches of the same tree, different expressions of the same culture. We want to inspire each other but not fuse with each other, this is not a fusion event. You will have classes of the different styles and during the parties we will put a mix of music to share among the communities and dance as much as we can. We aim to improve our dance by improving our dancing in general. Inspire us not only by what we have in front but also from what we have next to us. To receive the ads as we launch you can like on our Facebook page and follow us on instagram. Meanwhile, if you are thinking about signing up, we tell you that you must haver a profile on our website, for this you can register here. Soon we will tell you much more, but for the moment save the date!
