2ndStoneFest Glen Echo, MD, Lancaster, PA, Rockville, MDBlues Workshop
StoneFest 11/2/2023 City: Glen Echo, MD, Lancaster, PA, Rockville, MD Dances: Blues Have you enjoyed Blues Muse or regretted not going? If so, you should know that it is happening again next year and will also be amazing then. Make plans for it. But if you're needing a little methadone to smooth out the end of the Muse pure high, maybe come to Lancaster and DC(ish) for more blues dance classes with Damon and Kelsy and dancing to great DJs and live music. Learn to incorporate grooves from Funk, Piedmont and elsewhere in your dance when you hear them in the music, deepen your connections with the floor, partners, and musicians, and learn how the history shapes our music and dance. More specific events will be forthcoming in comments.

🎵 Music
We have looked far and wide for the perfect DJs and musicians to be part of Dance Blender. All of them are versatile in what they play and are ready to have the music dance your socks off, for over 20 hours of parties across two rooms!
We will be having two rooms during the main party with changing themes every hour throughout the night. These themes are dance style agnostic and the majority of the music played will not be of a particular dance style, more details to come.

24thStockholm Blues Immersion StockholmBlues Workshop
Stockholm Blues Immersion 7/24/2024 City: Stockholm Dances: Blues Swedish summer. A remote cabin in the woods where you'll spend 5 days immersed in blues and the blues community with a small group of advanced blues dancers. Together you'll enjoy a relaxed schedule where you'll have plenty of time for lessons and practice, but also forest walks, swimming and hanging out in the sauna.
Ever feel like workshops don't get you very far anymore, and that you keep scratching the surface of many things but never really master any of them? We want Stockholm Blues Immersion to be the remedy. Our teachers will cover fewer topics, but we'll stay on each topic longer to really explore it properly, both during the lesson and in practice sessions.
Is this for you?
Have you been dancing for a while but feel like you’ve reached a plateau?
Are you maybe teaching blues but feel like you don’t have a lot of peers in your local scene to practice with?
Do you go to a lot of festivals and workshops but wish there were more time to explore some topics in depth?
Are you really passionate about learning more about blues and advancing your dance skills?
Yes? Then this is for you.
Teachers: Flouer Evelyn and Adam Skoglund
