DJX + Dance Alchemy Fusion Weekend 8/5/2016 City: Toronto, Canada Dances: Fusion DJX + Dance Alchemy Fusion Weekend
August 5 - 7, 2016. Toronto!!!


We’ll be bringing top instructors to teach over 3 days. Instructors include:

Mark Carpenter
Originally from California, Mark began dancing lindy and blues in 2005 and started teaching shortly thereafter, exploring various other dance styles from tango to contact improv along the way. In recent years he has dedicated his study to the emerging forms and conventions of “fusion” dance and is eager to explore and advance that movement through quality teaching throughout the world. His constant goal is to make the impossible easy and the easy look impossible.

Emiliano Estevez
Emiliano has a background in Lindy Hop, Blues, Hip-Hop, House, Tango, and a host of movements from many other genres. He has been dancing since late 2000 and continues to add new ideas and movements to his style. Emilio teaches weekly classes in Lancaster, PA, taught at national events such as the Fusion Exchange and Blues Recess. He DJs locally and nationally, providing a groovy flavor of Blues, Lindy, and Fusion music. He also runs the fusion event DJ Experiment.

Laura Boddorff
Laura was a classical dancer all her life, until, in 2004, she began ballroom dancing because of a boy. Laura has studied over 25 styles of dance, and teaches Ballroom. She has taught hundreds of beginners the basics they need to be confident on the dance floor, in scenes across the country. She will help you find that just-perfect connection with everyone you dance with, and challenge you with new stylings and patterns to diversify your dancing!

Dale Arsenault
Dale is a self taught freestyle dancer. He started dancing as early as 3 years old, in breakdancing and hip hop. He learned to mix breaking, hip hop and house with jazzier inspired steps to form his unique style. With his acute ties to music, he is passionate to share his knowledge of movement and love of dance with everyone. Dale has crafted a formula for dancers to develop their own styles of dance with exercises for creativity and enhancing the connectivity between music and dance.


<> About the social dancing <>
The possibility to expand your dance will be endless with 3 full nights of social dancing with dancers from all over Canada, the states and beyond.


<> About the music <>
Music is a fundamental component to the fusion experience. DJX (The DJ experiment), based out of Philadelphia, has been running fusion events for several years with the purpose of pushing musical boundaries with partnered dancing. They have an excellent reputation for selecting the best DJs from around North America.

Friday and Saturday nights will feature live music including fusion mainstay David Keogh and upcoming Canadian talent Bad Willow.

David Keogh is an electronic fusion act from Seattle, Washington. As a dancer and musician in the fusion scene for many years, his unique sound has inspired dancers across the world. His music features downtempo beats layered over lush piano, violin, and electronics with an emphasis on rhythm, tempo and musicality for that magical blend of dance-forms we call fusion.

Bad Willow is a Toronto based electronic music duo who combines raw lyrics and haunting melodies with infectious beats and ambient electronic waves to create an eerily harmonious new sound.

Now accepting DJ applications! Come rock the house with us :)
Application deadline: 11:59pm on Sat July 2nd

Ceuvel Swing Camp 2016 Amsterdam
Ceuvel Swing Camp 2016 8/12/2016 City: Amsterdam, Netherlands Dances: Fusion Ceuvel Swing Camp is a unique event with a special concept. We've created our own ideal learning environment: personal attention combined with a lot of dance hours and cross-over inspiration from other disciplines.

Personal attention means: EVERYBODY GETS PRIVATE CLASSES. Every single participant can get half an hour of private attention from a teacher of choice on their own. Or two times half an hour if you take the class with a partner, or four times half an hour if you take the class with 4 people, etc.

For two days, all day long, there are four rooms where private classes are going on. In the mean time, for when it's not your turn for private attention, you can take classes of all sorts in the big party room, with among other things: Lindy-Hop at three levels, fusion, tango, yoga, solo jazz or a teacher's training.
Teachers: Audun Kveberg, Ida Pontén, Judith Rosenberg, Kibble White, Kamilė Pundziūtė, Pieter Aart Schouten, Ellen Maassen, Anika Kopfüber Bands: Bigband houten

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.
