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!

Kizomba Weekender with Rachel Cassandra 3/28/2015 City: Porltand, USA Dances: Blues, Fusion, Tango, Other 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

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
www.deceuvel.nl

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.
