BLUESFLASH! Next week (8 Dec) is our final class before xmas and, therefore, has to be our end of term party! Classes with Shell and Leigh are at the usual times (7pm Foundations, 8pm Int-Adv) and the BluesWater will be providing live music at the social dance from 9pm. See you at The Newsroom!
The Tuesday Night Spoonful have a host of special classes this month including guests teachers Samuel Tinguely (Switzerland) and Daire Mac An Bhaird (Oslo) AND Leigh‘s back from her first international teaching gig at Drag The Blues (Barcelona) and is psyched to be back in the ‘burgh teaching with Seb!
Scotland will be representing at Snowflake Blues (Dec 11-13, Durham) with Craig Thomson (Dundee) and Leigh partnering up with the lovely Annette(http://www.annettedances.com/). This will be a big party weekend with a focus on solo blues/musicality/quality of movement and registration is open now.
As always, there are plenty of events happening all over Europe…
There are still some tickets for Petit ESBF (Dec 11-13, Madrid); a mini ESBF with Alba, Gaston, Vicci and Adamo, the four organisers of ESpanish Blues Festival!
Registrations have just opened for Valentine’s Blues (Feb 12-14) in beautiful Warsaw, and the organisers are happy to help with finding accommodation or hosting the dancers
If you want to really push your dancing to the next level, there’s the week long Blossom Blues Camp and Festival (May 7-16, Zurich) with Brenda Russell and Catherine Palmier… you can’t register yet, but mark your calendars!
If you’re new to traveling to events, you can chat to Leigh or any of the teachers/committee for advice and tips, and the FB group is a great place to coordinate travel plans!
Edinbop’s Winter Cabaret is back on the 27th Jan! This is always a fun night out and a great way to introduce friends and family to the dance scene. If you have a hidden talent and would like to perform, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Anything goes (dancing, singing, comedy, plate spinning – ANYTHING!) but please keep your act less than 3 MIN. We’re already looking forward to all the amazing stuff people will be doing this year!
The second in a series of weekends where Blues dancers from all over Scotland (and beyond) sweep up a city and dance in ALL the places! ALL the time!
Adventure-like events in Aberdeen, blues bombing live music venues, a tea dance at the Bottle Cap Bar and Brewery, and a 2 hour workshop with Lucas Weismann – all for an absolute bargain (suggested payment @ £10/person).
