13thMozambique Afro Swing Exchange MaputoFusion Exchange
Mozambique Afro Swing Exchange 3/13/2017 City: Maputo, Mozambique Dances: Fusion Hodi Maputo Afro Swing is hosting an international dance exchange March 13-19, just before Mother City Hop in Cape Town! After the first edition in 2016 we are again exited about inviting international dancers to Mozambique to experience the culture, meet and dance with the local dancers and feel the energy of the swing kids. Enjoy the simplicity of the township and the peace and calm of the beachside village.

MASX is different from other exchanges, it is an invitation to an experience rather than to an event. It is an opportunity to leave a stressful daily life and feel the “Mozambican way”; people smiling from their hearts and enjoying the small things around them. Sometimes things goes exactly according to plans, sometimes it doesn’t, but believing that everything will always work out leaves a lot of stress behind and gives us perspective of our own lives. Activities and accommodation are included in the price and the group will stay together during the stay.

In Mozambique Hodi Maputo Afro Swing offers traditional Mozambican dance and drum workshops during the day and Afro Swing parties with at least two nights of live music. Four days will be spent in Maputo, the capital of Mozambique, three days at a beautiful beach not too far away from Maputo with the local dancers. The exact place will be announced.

This is an intimate event, the exchange is limited to 40 international dancers. Our local participants are around 50 people. Register at http://masx.org/registration.html

Some funds will help support the local dancers to participate in the event and all profit will go straight to Hodi Maputo Afro Swing and their local activities.

For more info see www.masx.org

In the week before the festival (Monday 20th – Thursday 23rd March), our local dancers will be running daily tours to the best spots in Mother City:

• THE CAPE PENINSULA: Explore perfect beaches, meet quirky penguins and cheeky baboons on the Cape Peninsula, the southwestern tip of Africa which separates the Indian and Atlantic Oceans.

• TABLE MOUNTAIN: Hike up one of many beautiful trails to the top of Table Mountain to see the Cape Peninsula from above and swing out on one of the 7 Wonders of the World. If you want to save your energy for dancing, take the cable car instead.

• HISTORIC CAPE TOWN: Cape Town is steeped in history and there are many must-see sites, including Robben Island, the District 6 Museum, and the historic Slave Lodge. We’ll follow this up with a picnic at the beautiful Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens.

• THE CAPE WINELANDS: Stroll through the Cape vineyards in the world’s longest wine route, tasting the local varieties. A relaxed day trip in the beautiful Stellenbosch area with wine and chocolate tastings.

3 Nights of dancing, 2 Days of classes in New York City

Fusion Dancing: We use the many genres of partner dance to create personal, improvisational expressions of music.

Motley Hue provides space for the individual shades of movement cultures to mottle together, creating a prismatic world of movement and music.

Our community is built on respect, the willingness to say “yes” to new ideas, and the freedom to color outside the lines of traditional partner dancing. Each new dance is an experience unto itself.

Inspired by four dancing fools making jokes in the kitchen, this event embraces its title with pride! During the day there will be workshops ranging from clown and improv to epic MICRO dancing and deconstructing dance movement, each with the goal of bringing more play, fun, and joy into our dancing. During the night there will be dancing with music. All the music. All geared to inspire creativity, gettin' down, and then exploring the edges of what we might usually "dance" to. There will be fusion music, music for the everyday human, alt-fusion music, and maybe even some alt-music. Also, look forward to more announcements about special features of the event including unexpected performances, the Undanceable Music Competition, the Danceable Treasure Hunt, and much much more!

Will you join us to “Dance?!? Alt Fusion”?

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.
