Seravezza Blues Camp Seravezza (LU)
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.

Brenda Jean Russell (USA): dance
Dante Zapata (USA): dance
Daniel Nash (UK): acoustic guitar
Valentina Bartoli (IT): Hammond organ & piano
Emiliano Degl’Innocenti (IT): guitar
Carlo Romagnoli (IT): bass
Davide Malito Lenti (IT): drums
Tom Blacksmith (DE): harmonica

Stefano Zenni: conference "Jazz & dance".

Thursday (free): introduction, teachers performances, open class, party with live music.
Workshop topics:
Friday: From Spiritual to R&B
Saturday: Muddy Waters and Chess Records
Sunday: Boogie and Boogaloo

MUSICALITY CLASS: all the students together are introduced to the topic of the day with listening and discussing about different styles and blues forms

The next are specific STYLE CLASSES or ensemble music for separated musicians and dancers

The combo jam is the heart of the workshop, when musicians and dancers play and create the blues together and learn together how to play and dance better and enjoy more

PARTY: The late night parties are with professional live bands playing the music of the day’s topics.

Teachers: Brenda Russell, Dante Zapata Bands: Dan Nash, Soul On Fire, Magic Bones
