Tango and Blues Dance Camp - "Tangoed up in Blues"

Postby Tanguero » Mon Jul 06, 2009 8:38 am

Hi Everyone,

We're putting up a tango and blues camp this year and would love to see all you Tango and Blues dancers get involved. I've created a Facebook group called "Tangoed up in Blues" and a website will follow.

A large GP tent, 18'x54' will be in main dance / social venue. We'd love to get a lot of people involved this year (DJ'ing, teaching, helping set up, take down, perform...) So if you're interested let me know.

Cheers....

(yes, this is my first post) :)

Hi, just curious as to what sort of blues dancing people can expect to find here. Got some specific styles/artists/eras in mind?

I'm not even sure you can dance to blues--that's listening music, no?

Then I realised that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me.

Oooo - i remember being on a cruise ship and a blues club took a group cruise at the same time. they would set up a sound system on the lido deck late at night and start dancing. I joined in a couple times, but man... i could have watched them dance all night.

as for what type of dance... i'd say a mix of different genres, but it's HOT. really HOT.

keep me posted on where you guys are located. i'll be there!

I looked up blues dancing cause I had never heard of it.
It reminds me a little bit of tango, but tango is a lot more articulate it seems.
But blues dancing looks more fun!
Peace, love, intellectual stimulation, and good times!

I don't know too much about samba, but I can shake my hips and wiggle whatever when the music moves me. As for blues, it's my personal favorite. My original camp fell apart recently (farmers are too fickle to make plans). I would love to join up, I'm a damn good cook, a hard worker and a decent yoga teacher as well... Please let me know more...

I'm fully supportive for a place to tango. I'll be on the playa all week. Keep me posted.

THE NAME OF THIS CAMP IS THE BEST THING I HAVE SEEN ON EPLAYA IN A LONG TIME.

Also, get "You Can't Judge a Book By it's Cover" by Bo Diddley playing if you really want to get the place jumping. Man, if I had a nickel for every time I danced naked to that song, I would have 35 cents.
I volunteered at Burning Man and all I got was this stupid superiority complex.

Made my day

Postby Otisserie » Sun Aug 16, 2009 2:12 am

Wow, this made my day! I was hoping there'd be blues somewhere on the playa. And I've been meaning to learn some Tango. Now I just hope I save some time to see the rest of Burning Man.
I don't experiment with drugs anymore; I already know which ones I like.

Tangoe'd up in Blues put on a great camp. I learned that blues can be danced to and very intimately indeed. I have been drawn to social dancing, but really hadn't connected with the accompanying music. Blues dancing brings together social dancing and the music that I love the best.

Thanks for one of the most enjoyable and exciting times ever!
