Blossom Blues Camp 2016 5/7/2016 City: Zurich, Switzerland Dances: Fusion An intensive Camp about Meditation, Dancing, Movement, Bodywork and all the good stuff.
This is your possibility to really dive into your own experience of your body. Movement training at it’s best, applied to what you are passionate about – Dance. Our trainers teach wellness, movement and dancing. We are happy to have the most knowledgeable teachers for Movement Education and African based social dance with us: Brenda Russell and Catherine Palmier.

It will focus on improving your body awareness, movement quality, and interpersonal interactions with others. There will be livemusic in class to make you understand the material even better.

This is a place to come and be humble, to learn, and to be a part of something both difficult and very special. We will spend portions of the weekend working on dancing our non-dominant dance role as well as talking about and workshopping some of the hardest hitting issues in the community. The event will have be one cohesive curriculum that all participants will move through together, combining dance, activism, discussion, and play. One of our main goals with this event is to not only help improve skills of people dancing outside of their primary role, but to do the work necessary to create a community that allows people to safely dance outside of their primary role, and as a whole to do the work to improve the overall safety and empowerment of our community.

Old World Alt-Blues Recess 6/9/2016 City: Milan, Italy Dances: Fusion Recess has been producing progressive, boundary pushing, culture creating events in the American partner dancing scene over the past 9 years. This is Recess' third year throwing events in Europe and serves 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 foothills of the Italian Alps, in Bergamo, Italy, 1 hour north of Milano, Italy. Our setting is a stunning 18th century Italian mansion surrounded by large gardens and vineyards. Its beautifully plastered walls and network of outbuildings and gardens will be our dance halls; its sprawling grounds and industrial kitchen our house and dining room. There are 30 beds for an extra cost, otherwise camping is provided with the purchasing of an event ticket.

Dance Out Loud: Closer Encounters 7/8/2016 City: San Diego, USA Dances: Fusion 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.

Northwest Alt-Blues Recess Bellingham
Northwest Alt-Blues Recess 8/18/2016 City: Bellingham, USA Dances: Fusion Northwest, our favorite Recess! Or thats just what they say about all of them... 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 helped custom built four 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.
