Shaggin' Montreal 2017 9/22/2017 City: Stanstead, QC, Canada Dances: Balboa, Shag Shaggin’ Montreal isn’t your average swing dance weekend. Collegiate Shag is a much smaller community than, say Lindy Hop. Our event has the specific purpose of welcoming beginners into our community and providing people with a chance to become dancers. At the same time, few dances are as loosely defined and diversely expressed as Collegiate Shag, that we are exploring a personal interpretation of the dance. Dancers attending are encouraged to explore and hear from many viewpoints as they find their own personal style and interpretation of the dance. We encourage guests to borrow from other dances, whether it’s Lindy Hop, Contemporary, Rhythm Tap or Hip Hop.

23rdIDW's Fusion Dance Mini-Weekender near LingfieldFusion Workshop
IDW's Fusion Dance Mini-Weekender 9/23/2017 City: near Lingfield, United Kingdom Dances: Fusion Fusion Dancing???

Hopefully we all know by now that Fusion Dancing *isn’t* just dancing one Dance Style to the Music of another, or merely adapting Moves between Styles – an accomplished Fusion Dancer does *so* much more than this…. But have you ever wondered what Fusion Dancing is *really* all about?

IDW have great pleasure in presenting a Mini-Weekend Retreat in an idyllic setting with *Expert Professional Tuition* to help dancers from all genres to work together and find out for themselves what Fusion Dancers can actually aspire to… Expect a dedicated Dance Community that works, eats and plays together to push the frontiers of Modern Partner Dancing…

We’ll be basing the weekend around Blues Fusion, but it’s suitable for Modern and/or Traditional Blues Dancers, Smooth Modern Jive Dancers, Tangueros and even Solo Dancers/Blues Beginners that want to experiment with *really* connecting with a partner…

The weekend features two specialist Workshops on Saturday and a third on the Sunday morning, with options to book yourself a local B&B for the Saturday night or even stay on site if coming from further afield. All refreshments and lunch on Saturday are included, and there’s the option to book a dinner with us for Saturday night or unwind at nearby restaurants and pubs… The class content is spread over several sessions and taken at a more exploratory pace than our famous *Intensive* Workshops, and there’s plenty of Consolidation/Practice time with expert support on hand (which means dancers retain the learning points more effectively)… All this for just £55 per person (£48 Early Bird Price!)


Mandy and Basil (who have have just been appointed as the first-announced Judges at the 2018 Bues n Smooth Champs to take place in February and who will be your Teachers for this Weekend) specialise in teaching Blues, Tango and Fusion Dancing. They have spent a lifetime in dance with over forty years of full-time professional teaching experience between them. They are widely seen as the experts in Connection and strongly believe that an equal Conversation based on clear Communication between partners lies at the heart and soul of social dancing…

The Herons Centre is a beautiful venue with landscaped Japanese-style gardens. It has a large, airy studio with a wonderful floor and floor-to-ceiling glass doors – a truly inspiring location to work in!!


The Timetable is subject to change, but here’s what we’re planning at the moment:

Saturday:

10.30-11.00 Meet and Greet
11.00-13.00 First Workshop (‘Coming Together’ - A re-evaluation of Blues Fundamentals in terms of movement, musicality and connection)
13.00-14.30 Communal Leisurely Lunch (buffet style)
14.30-15.00 Blues Mini-Practica (a managed practice session with music, where dancers work together to consolidate previous learning, with access to teachers for help with problems/questions or for evaluation/further suggestions.
15.00-17.00 Second Workshop (‘Getting to Grips’ – exploring the concept of Fusion and applying different Techniques within a Blues Framework)
17.00-17.30 Break for Tea and Homemade Cakes (arguably the best part of the weekend!)
17.30-19.30 Fusion Practica (with guidance as above)
19.30: Optional Dinner with us On-Site

N.B. We’ve decided to wind down on Saturday before everyone’s exhausted - early enough for those who might want to spend some time on their own to get to their B&B, change and be in plenty of time to eat out at a place of their choosing and/or go to a pub to rest and recuperate, and for energetic locals (and those of the travellers who want to join them!) to meet up for more Dancing and show off their new skills!!

Sunday:

11.00-11.30 Meet Up for Coffee with option of gentle Warm up Exercises with Mandy
11.30-13.30 Third Workshop (‘Bringing it all Together’ – a focus on using more advanced connection and communication in Fusion Dancing to enable more complex concepts from other Dance Styles to be incorporated)
13.30-14.30 Fusion Mini-Practica (Dancers that need to travel, attend family lunch events etc., or simply to recover together over a local pub lunch are of course welcome to leave early during this final Practica)…


Places on this Weekender are very limited so please book (see below) as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. Please note that you need to book this event as a Leader/Follower pair – all partners will be rotated during the Workshops, although there is the option to work with a chosen partner during all or part of the Practica Sessions if desired.
