Old World Les Costes
Old World Alt-Blues Recess 5/28/2015 City: Les Costes, France Dances: Blues, Fusion Recess has been producing progressive, boundary pushing, culture creating events in the American partner dancing scene over the past 9 years.

This is the second official Recess outside of the United States and will serve as a small, intimate, and playful testing ground for the what we want our dance community to be. Kind of like a fun-filled, fantasy-driven weekend... or a lived-in premonition of what we want the future to be!

We will spend three days and four nights dancing, eating, camping, and making merry in the mountains of the French countryside 2 hours south of Lyon, France. Our setting is the Ferme Les Costes. Its stone walls and network of outbuildings will be our dance halls; its sprawling grounds and industrial kitchen our house and dining room.

CIty In Motion Presents: Closer Encounters 7/31/2015 City: San Diego, CA, USA Dances: Blues, Fusion, Tango, West Coast Body+Language

In January of 2015, a novel format for workshop and festival design was attempted, City In Motion Dance Weekend (CIMDW). 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, City In Motion presents: Closer Encounters. Where CIMDW is an all you can eat buffet of body movement exercises and activities, Closer Encounters is a highly focused workshop weekend that concentrates on body language.


One class at a time, attendees learn new ways to communicate without words.

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

Northwest Recess Bellingham, WA
Northwest Recess 8/20/2015 City: Bellingham, WA, USA Dances: Blues, Fusion For 2015 our favorite Recess will implode back to being its normal amazing self. 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.

Cider House Blues Bristol
Cider House Blues 11/13/2015 City: Bristol, United Kingdom Dances: Blues Once again Bristol's Blues Dancing Festival welcomes you in the midst of dark winter months to come hang out, dance, party, drink cider, and have a wonderful time.

If you haven't been to Cider House, our intention to to create a small, friendly blues dancing event that inspires people to dance. We try to make sure that everyone feels welcome to dance both roles if they would like, and last year way more than half of people did.

Our teacher this year is the quite excellent Justin Riley, and it will be your last chance to see him in Europe in 2015 (unless he hasn't told us something!)

We've swapped dates with Blues Baby Blues this year, so we are slightly earlier than expected - 13th to 15th November.
