5thDJX + Dance Alchemy Fusion Weekend TorontoFusion Workshop
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.

12thCeuvel Swing Camp 2016 AmsterdamFusion Workshop
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

We will have discussion-based sessions in which groups collectively develop tactics to bring back to their home communities and we will have dance classes such as practicing non-dominant roles as a way of breaking down binary assumptions in dance and in life.

We also look forward to laughing over communal meals where we can talk about how to make our communities stronger, all in a warm cozy cabin. And of course we are super excited for glamming up, throwing down, and dancing all night to some phenomenal djs + live acts!

13thMozambique Afro Swing Exchange MaputoFusion Exchange
Mozambique Afro Swing Exchange 3/13/2017 City: Maputo, Mozambique Dances: Fusion Hodi Maputo Afro Swing is hosting an international dance exchange March 13-19, just before Mother City Hop in Cape Town! After the first edition in 2016 we are again exited about inviting international dancers to Mozambique to experience the culture, meet and dance with the local dancers and feel the energy of the swing kids. Enjoy the simplicity of the township and the peace and calm of the beachside village.

MASX is different from other exchanges, it is an invitation to an experience rather than to an event. It is an opportunity to leave a stressful daily life and feel the “Mozambican way”; people smiling from their hearts and enjoying the small things around them. Sometimes things goes exactly according to plans, sometimes it doesn’t, but believing that everything will always work out leaves a lot of stress behind and gives us perspective of our own lives. Activities and accommodation are included in the price and the group will stay together during the stay.

In Mozambique Hodi Maputo Afro Swing offers traditional Mozambican dance and drum workshops during the day and Afro Swing parties with at least two nights of live music. Four days will be spent in Maputo, the capital of Mozambique, three days at a beautiful beach not too far away from Maputo with the local dancers. The exact place will be announced.

This is an intimate event, the exchange is limited to 40 international dancers. Our local participants are around 50 people. Register at http://masx.org/registration.html

Some funds will help support the local dancers to participate in the event and all profit will go straight to Hodi Maputo Afro Swing and their local activities.

For more info see www.masx.org
Bands: Banda Hodi

Motley Hue Fusion 3/31/2017 City: New York, USA Dances: Fusion "Make Ideas Happen"
3 Nights of dancing, 2 Days of classes in New York City

Fusion Dancing: We use the many genres of partner dance to create personal, improvisational expressions of music.

Motley Hue provides space for the individual shades of movement cultures to mottle together, creating a prismatic world of movement and music.

Our community is built on respect, the willingness to say “yes” to new ideas, and the freedom to color outside the lines of traditional partner dancing. Each new dance is an experience unto itself.

See you on the dance floor!

23rdIDW's Fusion Dance Mini-Weekender near LingfieldFusion Workshop
IDW's Fusion Dance Mini-Weekender 9/23/2017 City: near Lingfield, United Kingdom Dances: Fusion Fusion Dancing???

Hopefully we all know by now that Fusion Dancing *isn’t* just dancing one Dance Style to the Music of another, or merely adapting Moves between Styles – an accomplished Fusion Dancer does *so* much more than this…. But have you ever wondered what Fusion Dancing is *really* all about?

IDW have great pleasure in presenting a Mini-Weekend Retreat in an idyllic setting with *Expert Professional Tuition* to help dancers from all genres to work together and find out for themselves what Fusion Dancers can actually aspire to… Expect a dedicated Dance Community that works, eats and plays together to push the frontiers of Modern Partner Dancing…

We’ll be basing the weekend around Blues Fusion, but it’s suitable for Modern and/or Traditional Blues Dancers, Smooth Modern Jive Dancers, Tangueros and even Solo Dancers/Blues Beginners that want to experiment with *really* connecting with a partner…

The weekend features two specialist Workshops on Saturday and a third on the Sunday morning, with options to book yourself a local B&B for the Saturday night or even stay on site if coming from further afield. All refreshments and lunch on Saturday are included, and there’s the option to book a dinner with us for Saturday night or unwind at nearby restaurants and pubs… The class content is spread over several sessions and taken at a more exploratory pace than our famous *Intensive* Workshops, and there’s plenty of Consolidation/Practice time with expert support on hand (which means dancers retain the learning points more effectively)… All this for just £55 per person (£48 Early Bird Price!)


Mandy and Basil (who have have just been appointed as the first-announced Judges at the 2018 Bues n Smooth Champs to take place in February and who will be your Teachers for this Weekend) specialise in teaching Blues, Tango and Fusion Dancing. They have spent a lifetime in dance with over forty years of full-time professional teaching experience between them. They are widely seen as the experts in Connection and strongly believe that an equal Conversation based on clear Communication between partners lies at the heart and soul of social dancing…

The Herons Centre is a beautiful venue with landscaped Japanese-style gardens. It has a large, airy studio with a wonderful floor and floor-to-ceiling glass doors – a truly inspiring location to work in!!


The Timetable is subject to change, but here’s what we’re planning at the moment:

Saturday:

10.30-11.00 Meet and Greet
11.00-13.00 First Workshop (‘Coming Together’ - A re-evaluation of Blues Fundamentals in terms of movement, musicality and connection)
13.00-14.30 Communal Leisurely Lunch (buffet style)
14.30-15.00 Blues Mini-Practica (a managed practice session with music, where dancers work together to consolidate previous learning, with access to teachers for help with problems/questions or for evaluation/further suggestions.
15.00-17.00 Second Workshop (‘Getting to Grips’ – exploring the concept of Fusion and applying different Techniques within a Blues Framework)
17.00-17.30 Break for Tea and Homemade Cakes (arguably the best part of the weekend!)
17.30-19.30 Fusion Practica (with guidance as above)
19.30: Optional Dinner with us On-Site

N.B. We’ve decided to wind down on Saturday before everyone’s exhausted - early enough for those who might want to spend some time on their own to get to their B&B, change and be in plenty of time to eat out at a place of their choosing and/or go to a pub to rest and recuperate, and for energetic locals (and those of the travellers who want to join them!) to meet up for more Dancing and show off their new skills!!

Sunday:

11.00-11.30 Meet Up for Coffee with option of gentle Warm up Exercises with Mandy
11.30-13.30 Third Workshop (‘Bringing it all Together’ – a focus on using more advanced connection and communication in Fusion Dancing to enable more complex concepts from other Dance Styles to be incorporated)
13.30-14.30 Fusion Mini-Practica (Dancers that need to travel, attend family lunch events etc., or simply to recover together over a local pub lunch are of course welcome to leave early during this final Practica)…


Places on this Weekender are very limited so please book (see below) as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. Please note that you need to book this event as a Leader/Follower pair – all partners will be rotated during the Workshops, although there is the option to work with a chosen partner during all or part of the Practica Sessions if desired.

Dance!?! Alt Fusion - Bay Area, CA
In three words: Ridiculous. Dancing. Fill-in-the-Blank: “F______”*.

Inspired by four dancing fools** making jokes in the kitchen, this event embraces its title with pride! There will be workshops deeply steeped in clown and improv where we’ll be deconstructing dance movement and partnership with the goal of bringing more play, fun, and joy into our dancing. During the night there will be dancing with music. All the music. All geared to inspire creativity, gettin' down, and then exploring the edges of what we might usually "dance" to. There will be fusion music, music for the everyday human, alt-fusion music, and maybe even some alt-music.

This event, we’re bringing back the Strictly Undanceable Music Competition, Gastronomical Brunch, and Danceable Treasure Hunt. Introducing, at this event only, the Performativeness Show!

Will you join us to “Dance!?! Alt Fusion”?

Limited Space Available (Capped at 61 Participants).
Invite your friends to play!
Challenge your archrivals in the Strictly Undanceable Music Competition for DJs!

Cross-Border Fusion 5/25/2018 City: Brussels, Belgium Dances: Fusion Fusion? What is it? How do you "dance" fusion? You’ve seen fusion danced at the end of blues parties and want to know more? Or you're already into fusion and want to improve?

We’re preparing an amazing week-end of fusion workshops! We’ll have two awesome teachers, Ally Yancey (Amsterdam) and Ouardane Jouannot (Lyon), who will cross the border for one week-end and blow your minds with their energy, their classes and their music!

It will be a “choose your own adventure” workshop, with 7 hours of classes split between the Saturday and the Sunday. This means that before each class, you’ll have a short summary of the two upcoming classes: one by Ally, one by Ouardane. You can then choose the class you wish to participate in.

In all the classes, you will be encouraged to try out both roles!

You don't need a partner to register!

LOCATION: Fred Academy (Rue de la Révolution 18, 1000 Brussels)

CLASS SCHEDULES:
Saturday - 1 pm to 6 pm
Sunday - 12:30 pm to 5 pm

PRICES:
Full pass: 100 euros
1-day pass: 60 euros

The full pass gives you access to the classes and all three parties. The Saturday pass gives you access to the Saturday classes and party. The Sunday pass gives you access to the Sunday classes and party.

More details on the parties coming soon!
