CANCELED: GÖTEBLUES Gothenburg
CANCELED: GÖTEBLUES 5/1/2020 City: Gothenburg, Sweden Dances: Blues GÖTEBLUES is a dance camp where we try to embrace the Göteborg (Gothenburg)-spirit and create a warm and welcoming atmosphere. To also help with the warmth we have strategically chosen the month of May, usually a pleasant time of year to be in Göteborg.
So what can you expect from GÖTEBLUES dance-wise? We will offer three class levels, each level will have a full (8 hours) and a half track (4 hours). We will offer classes for all levels, from dancers that have been dancing blues less than a year to blues dance camp globetrotters. We will also offer a fast track for swing dancers that are completely new to blues and want to kick start their blues journey.
We will also bring you three parties, two live bands, three international teachers and a lot of gôtt mos!
In Göteborg the saying “Gôtt mos” literally means “tasty mashed potatoes” but it’s used to imply that something is awesome. Gôtt mos = Nice! Cool! Great! Awesome! Good job!

CANCELED NW Balboa Festival 5/15/2020 City: Seattle, WA, USA Dances: Balboa The Northwest Balboa Festival is back for its sixth year! We're ready for 2020, shuffling our way into the new decade. This year's Northwest Balboa Festival will bring the best of what the Pacific Northwest's dance community has to offer.

Since its start, Northwest Balboa Festival has been about building community and making everyone feel welcome. This has been the underlying driver for every decision we make. We didn’t set out to create the largest event possible, nor did we set out to pack as many classes as possible into one weekend. This event has always been shaped and built by many members of our Seattle scene to provide a warm environment that encourages meeting new people and growing our regional dance scene in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
