Dance Out Loud: Closer Encounters 7/8/2016 City: San Diego, USA Dances: Blues, Fusion, Tango, West Coast, Other Body+Language

In January of 2015, a novel format for workshop and festival design was attempted, City In Motion San Diego (CIMSD). A weekend focused on body movement, blending tradition with experimentation, mixing dance with martial arts, while connecting with and looking for inspiration in music, partners, and one's self.

Using the same core concepts, we have created Dance Out Loud: Closer Encounters. Where CIMSD is an all you can eat buffet of body movement exercises and activities, DOLCE is a highly focused workshop weekend that concentrates on body language.

Bristol Blues Exchange 7/15/2016 City: Bristol, United Kingdom Dances: Blues Load your boxes, pack your valise or stuff your duffle bag - from First Class to Steerage, a ship of dreams is coming!

The third year of Bristol Blues Exchange brings you live music from three countries and two continents, international DJs, daytime discussions and activities, and all at the same time as the annual excitement of Bristol Harbour Festival. bristolharbourfestival.co.uk

Boarding begins on Friday night, followed by a steerage shindig on Saturday and a First Class cocktail soirée on Sunday taking us into the small hours.

We invite you to dress accordingly if you wish, and immerse yourself in the experience of traversing the decks of an early 20th century transatlantic ship, from the third classes kept out of sight below, to those who grace the captain's table.

Look out for icebergs and prepare to dance like it's your last night afloat!

(Lifeboats guaranteed for all at the First Class soirée. Any references to 90s ship-based films are purely coincidental.)
