From Russia with Love Edinburgh
From Russia with Love 3/14/2015 City: Edinburgh, United Kingdom Dances: Blues Save the date - Ksenia Parkhatskaya is coming to to Edinburgh for a weekend of solo authentic jazz, charleston and blues. Ksenia is a dancer, teacher, choreographer and singer for stage and TV. Her forte is Jazz Dance and Music. With a background in theatre, classical jazz and ballroom, her Swing & Jazz dance style is graceful yet theatrical. She is well known all over the world for her unique Charleston dance style and spectacular dance shows. Fastest feet, rubber legs, snake hips- that's how people describe Ksenia. Spreading authentic Jazz Era culture Ksenia is well known as an experimenter. Performing with contemporary jazz trios, creating choreographies to bebop she breaks the idea that jazz music after 1940 is non danceable. As an instructor she has a reputation for her sparkling personality, inspiring joy for life through dance. Her classes are an ocean of fresh innovative steps, challenging improvisation techniques, strong and subtle body movement work. Ksenia holds solo dancing titles at Swing & Jazz dance events in Europe, and has danced the Charleston on Ukrainian So You Think You Can Dance and Ukraine's Got Talent. Not to be missed!

Swing Revolution Leeds
Swing Revolution 3/13/2015 City: Leeds, United Kingdom Dances: Lindy There will be four streams at Swing Revolution 2015. Please note, levels are not based on time spent dancing but on your social dancing proficiency: Improver - You are confident with all the basic footwork pattern and are not afraid to get out on the dance floor but are looking for that little bit of spark. You have not had much experience with footwork variations or styling and want to push yourself to the next level. Intermediate - You ask them to dance and they ask you to dance another one! You are a confident and vibrant dancer who can make anyone's night. You are fine with all the basic Lindy and Charleston patterns and want to push yourself to be the best you can be. Advanced - The top end stuff. You are that guy (or girl) who everyone is queuing up for. You should have experience of many forms of vintage dance, be confident enough to perform publically (be it stage performance, competitions or teaching) and just generally be a boss at swing. This is going to be a hard level. Not for the faint of heart. Solo Jazz (New addition this year!) - Finally something to do by yourself. Ever had one of those dances that you cannot wait to dance to but don\'t have a partner? Show them what they are missing with some fab solo stuff. Teachers: James Kibblewhite and Judith Rosenberg, Laura Cupit Knight, Nicolas Deniau and Mikaela Hellsten, Riccardo Ferretti and Gemma Modinos, Scott Cupit and Trisha Sewell

Hanse Hop Hamburg
Hanse Hop 3/28/2015 City: Hamburg, Germany Dances: Lindy The Hanse Hop set its sails in 2009. At that time we had the wish to invite international Lindy Hop-Trainers to Hamburg more often. Thinking about how a new workshop in Hamburg should be like, we decided us for a quite contrasting workshop concept compared to the other regular workshops in Hamburg. Since then the Hanse Hop has taken place on irregular basis - whenever we felt the energy to organize or thought that it's time again. One of the main ideas behind the Hanse Hop is to put the focus on intensive training in a more familiar atmosphere rather than having a huge, perfectly arranged event. The number of attendants is strictly limited as there are only two trainer couples teaching two tracks of manageable size. This workshop appeals to dedicated intermediate / advanced dancers who are eager to learn and seriously want to work on their techniques, dancing skills, musicality and fun in dancing as well as dancers who might already have started to share their enthusiasm for Lindy Hop by teaching other people. There will be exhausting and inspiring 10 hours of class - 5 hours with each of the trainer couples. The trainer have the time to intensively work with the groups and take their time for individual feedback whenever necessary. We're looking back on a varying line up for every Hanse Hop so far and there are still plenty of trainer couples we would love to invite to teach. We also try to present at least one teacher couple who has not been to Hamburg before, so stay curious in case you haven't met the teachers before. Teachers: Daniel and Asa Heedman, Rebecka and Emelie DecaVita

Kizomba Weekender with Rachel Cassandra 3/28/2015 City: Porltand, USA Dances: Fusion Kizomba is one of the most popular genres of dance and music originating in Angola. It is a derivative of traditional Angolan semba with zouk and compas music from the French Caribbean Islands. On this basis, Kizomba music emerged as a more modern music genre with a sensual touch mixed with African rhythm. Kizomba music is characterised by a slower and usually very romantic rhythm, sung generally in Portuguese It is a truly awesome dance with Tango-like connection and sexy Latin hips. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VOR01MGW2ak Teachers: Rachel Cassandra

Camp Swing It Gapyeong (Near Seoul)
Camp Swing It 4/10/2015 City: Gapyeong (Near Seoul), Korea, Republic Of Dances: Lindy, Balboa Started with a bang in 2009, Camp Swing It (C.S.I.) is an event that truly represents the Korean swing scene and also the largest swing dance camp in Asia. A veritable festival of dancers, the three-day event enjoys the presence of all, from first-time dancers and newbies to already fabulous dancers in various events. The program at the Camp is full of workshops led by international champions, parties with live bands and the Korean Lindy Hop Championships - the largest of its kind in Korea, where all attendees regardless of levels become one and make ever-cherishable memories. CampSwingIt is not merely an event for local dancers. Already a pan-Asian event, CSI is gaining more and more recognition in the global swing scene and a location sought after by global dancers on the swing dance map. Though swing dance has landed in Korea less than a decade ago, the level of the dancers have impressively improved, and CSI is playing a pivotal role to ensure such growth is sustained. CSI will align with this growth and be the world's best event. Live Band: Hot Sugar Band(France) / Naomi & Her Handsome Devils(USA) / SageMin Swingtet(Korea) Teachers: Adamas Kangseok Kim and Hwayeon Lee, Gyunwoo and Suyeon Oh, Max Pitruzzella and Annie Trudeau, Mikey Pedroza, Peter Strom and Naomi Uyama, Pontus Persson and Isabella Gregorio, Soo Chan Lee and Hyun Jung Choi, Thomas Blacharz and Alice Mei, William Mauvais and Maeva Truntzer

Sunflower Swing Wichita, KS
Sunflower Swing 4/17/2015 City: Wichita, KS, USA Dances: Lindy The Sunflower Swing Task Force is committed to making our event not just awesome, but WichitAwesome. That's like regular awesome, with a generous helping of Wichita sauce. What's Wichita sauce, you ask? The exact recipe is a closely held secret, but here are a few key ingredients we think you'll like:

Sleeping in: No Sunflower Swing classes will begin prior to noon. So go to late night, get your party on, and don't fret about making it to class on time the next day.

Level auditions: We don't do 'em. You're welcome for that sensation you're experiencing right now. It's probably your blood pressure dropping.

Wichita Original Competitions: Last year we held competitions like the Chicken Sandwich and 60 Second Showdown! This year, it's all that and more!

The Crew Experience: Since 2014, we've been dividing our event attendees into "crews." Your crew will be the group of people you'll see in every class on Saturday. (Sunday's classes are all electives - you could see anybody in there. Anybody.) Unlike other events who either make every class a free-for-all or divide students strictly by audition results, Sunflower Swing assigns crews with a social goal in mind: We want you to meet and dance with as many awesome new partners as possible. To that end, crews are comprised of dancers from as many communities as possible. Don't worry, you'll still have plenty of time with your local besties. Each Saturday class consists of TWO crews.. So you'll have maximum exposure to your own crew, plus a smaller amount of shared class time with each of the others. By the end of the weekend, we promise you'll have some new friends! And to give you a chance to bond, we allot some time specifically for the Crew Challenge, which could be anything.

Pablo Inza + Sofia Saborido Bio's
________________________________________
Pablo Inza (Argentina) Pablo Inza. Dancer, choreographer, stage director and tango teacher. With a rich background in contemporary dance, artistic performance and direction, he started dancing tango in 1992 with both amateur milongueros as well as renowned maestros. He participated as dancer and choreographer in many tango shows in Argentina and also internationally. Since 1999 he has been invited to teach and perform in the most prestigious festivals. As stage director he created "Radio Cabulero"(presented in Bergen International Festival in 2002, Norway) "El arte de amar" (Tangomagia VI 2003, Holland). In Buenos Aires he did "El camion" (2001-02); "Matambre" (2003), "Metronomo" (2004), "Living" (2008) and "En el abrazo"(2012). Between 2004 and 2009 he was the producer and artistic director of Cambalache (a festival based on a fusion of tango, theater and contemporary dance). He was also one of the founders of Practica X (2004-2012) which was one of the most frequented practicas in Buenos Aires. Pablo Inza is considered by many to be one of the present day tango scene's most influential figures and has won respect worldwide for his innovative and creative style. Pablo's personal style is rich in contrasting dynamics and playful musicality.Frequently invited to some of the largest tango festivals in Europe and North America, Pablo has been teaching and performing around the world since 1999. An excellent teacher with a great capacity for analysis and an innate sense of musicality, Pablo's classes are popular amongst dancers of all levels.
Sofia Saborido (Argentia) Dancer and tango teacher with a large background of theatre, ballet, modern and jazz dance. Great grand-daughter of Enrique Saborido (dancer, musician and composer of tangos like La Morocha or Felicia and many others) Sofia started dancing tango when she was only 10 years old. At the age of 12 she enters in the young tango ballet of La Plata. In 2000 she works in the dinner show "La Cumparsita" and performs every Sunday at the historic show of plaza Dorrego, in San Telmo. In 2006 she wins the 4th place of in the tango championship of Buenos Aires. In 2009 and 2010 she participates as main dancer in the show "Tango Argentique" presented in the Theatre Festival of Avignon. Since 2006 she develops an intensive pedagogical activity and is invited to teach in many countries such as France, Italy, Spain, Japan, Switzerland, Greece, Sweden, United Kingdom etc. Sofia is a delicate and intense dancer, a jewel of the new tango generation. Rich in musicality and quality of movement her dancing is based on a refined and sensitive connection. Very appreciated for her pedagogical method, she teaches in Europe since 2006 giving workshops, seminars and festivals.

Ceuvel Swing Camp 2015 Amsterdam
Ceuvel Swing Camp 2015 8/13/2015 City: Amsterdam, Netherlands Dances: Blues, Lindy, Solo Jazz, Other In August 2015 the very first Ceuvel Swing Camp will take place!

With: Audun Kveberg, Kris Blindert, Laura Stahl, Pieter Aart Schouten, Anika Kopfüber, Myriam Meret and more!

Ceuvel Swing Camp is based on the following idea:
We bring as many people together who want to learn from each other; the Lindy-Hop teachers can learn from a teacher's trainer, who can learn from a contemporary dancer who wants to learn some blues, etc... And since all of these people are in one place together, anybody else can come and profit from their knowledge!

Since everyone comes to learn something different, and because we believe that individual attention is the best way to learn, the weekend includes two private classes for each participant, by a teacher of choice. Beside that, you can take all the theme classes that are going on. This year's theme classes (and private class subjects) include: Lindy, blues, contemporary dance and yoga. And more will be announced soon!

Furthermore:

- All locations are within crawling distance of each other: workshop rooms, party location, swimming spot, central hangout, dinning hall and possibly even your bed.. (we're working on that).
- The camp is located in the middle of a big experiment in urban sustainability: The Ceuvel: https://www.facebook.com/CeuvelCafe

Registrations will open at 6th of February, 19:00 GMT+1

As usual, the inspiring Lookout Arts Quarry plays our host: a magical setting of an 86 acre rock quarry turned circus community south of Bellingham, WA.

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 custom built three 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.
