Madrid Blues Exchange 5/11/2018 City: Madrid, Spain Dances: Blues Reserva la fecha / Save the date [english below]

Madrid te invita a su primerísimo Exchange de Blues, que se celebrará en mayo, cuando la ciudad se pone chulapa y celebra sus fiestas patronales en honor a San Isidro. Ven a disfrutar de nuestro inquieto asfalto, de la fuerza que desprende, de la hospitalidad de los madrileños, su diversidad, alegría y garbo.
Sé parte de la leyenda de esta primera edición. Comparte con nosotros las mejores bandas locales de blues y las cañitas o los cafés con leche a cualquier hora y en cualquier lugar. Acércate a La Pradera de San Isidro: a las verbenas y conciertos, a comer rosquillas y descubrir el castizo baile del chotis.
Te despertaremos bajo un cielo azul eléctrico (que siempre exige lo mejor de cada día), para un desayuno o vermú.
Tenemos previstas fiestas, baile en diferentes espacios, tasters y una excursión muy especial a las afueras.
Mucho cariño y muy buen rollo.
¡Ven al Madrid más castizo! Ya te esperamos.

Música en directo
En Madrid podemos presumir de una rica escena de música blues, con grandes bandas que aparecen de forma asidua en locales emblemáticos donde se puede escuchar música en directo prácticamente todas las noches.
Durante el Exchange podremos disfrutar de tres de las mejores bandas de la escena de Madrid y dos increíbles voces femeninas.

Baile en El Retiro
En El Retiro, seña de identidad de nuestra ciudad, hemos realizado clandestinos todas las semanas durante el verano. Por eso, queremos celebrar contigo nuestro I Madrid Blues Exchange bailando en el gran parque. Ven a conocer uno de los sitios más bonitos de Madrid.

Tasters
Con la filosofía de todo suma, todo aporta y ayuda al conocimiento y control de nuestro cuerpo, y por ende, a nuestro baile. Os queremos proponer dos tasters, relacionados con otros bailes en pareja, que favorecen nuestra comunicación y diálogo en el baile.

Sala
Casi en pleno centro de Madrid, en una de las salas que hace las delicias de muchos bailarines de blues, organizaremos nuestras fiestas nocturnas.
Pronto, más información

We invite you to the first ever Madrid Blues Exchange which will be celebrated in May when the city becomes chulapa and celebrates its patron saint San Isidro. Come and enjoy the hospitality, diversity, joy, and panache of the locals.
Be part of the history of this first edition. Share with us the best local blues bands and cañitas or coffee anytime and anywhere. Come to La Pradera de San Isidro, its festivals and concerts, where you can eat donuts and discover the traditional dance of the chotis.
Enjoy the untainted blue sky (which always makes the best of each day) while having breakfast or a vermouth.
We have planned parties, dancing in different spaces, tasters and a very special excursion to the outskirts of the city all filled with much love and awesome vibes.
Come and meet authentic Madrid! We are already waiting for you.

LIVE MUSIC
We are very proud of our blossoming blues scene with extraordinary bands and musicians regularly playing at emblematic venues where you can indulge and listen to live music almost nightly. During the exchange we will be lucky enough to have three of the greatest blues bands in the Madrid scene, including the astonishing voices of two incredible female singers.

DANCING IN THE RETIRO PARK
The Retiro Park, hallmark of our city where we have held clandestinos every week during the summer. This is why we want to dance with you in this big park to celebrate our first ever Madrid Blues Exchange. Come and become acquainted with one of the most beautiful places in Madrid.

TASTERS
Under the guiding philosophy that everything can augment, contribute, and help to increase our knowledge and body control, and thus improve our dancing, we will have two tasters related to other partnered dances that encourage communication and dialogue within the dance.

VENUE
Our nightly parties will take place almost in the heart of Madrid and a in a venue already loved by many blues dancers.

Blues Muse 2018 Philadelphia
Blues Muse 2018 10/19/2018 City: Philadelphia, USA Dances: Blues Blues Muse is one of the longest-running and most well-respected Blues Dance workshops in the world. It focuses strongly on the roles of leaders and followers in the dance, ranging from clear, technical communication to solo-movement expression within partnership. It's a place for followers to explore their voices, and for leaders to explore how and when to be receptive. If you're interested in inspiration, partnership, and connection, then join us for our 11th year at Blues Muse.
