5 RUEDA BOOT CAMP AND CONNECTICUT SALSA FESTIVAL!
This promises to be a great event with workshops, shows etc.---all over Memorial Day Weekend (5/27 & 28, 2017)

The Salsa Rueda Boot Camp is part of the festival, and includes 3 to 4 hours of instruction on Saturday and Sunday.  It's a "crash course" on Rueda moves (steps, styling, technique).  The Bootcamp times are arranged so participants can also take other workshops at the Salsa Festival.

The goal is to prepare people to join the fun in Rueda circles on the dance floor, and learn a Rueda choreography with multiple circles.  Participants have the option of performing this on Sunday night.

An entire staff of teachers including Barb, Glen and others will work with the participants so that all everyone learns as much as possible and all levels of dancers are welcome. It's guaranteed to be loads of fun and very productive.

The full pass to the workshop (value over $245) is included in the cost of the Boot Camp.  You can't beat this value!!

. Cool Videos
a.  If you haven't seen the "Where the Hell is Matt?" videos, you have missed something very cool.  He just released a new one that some folks who dance locally participated in.  Here is the link:  https://youtu.be/LBJi0jZR7oQ   (Can you find me--Barb Bernstein--in the Arlington, VA footage? Recognize anyone else??)

b. Here are recent DIT videos:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uEgrI03nvNs&feature=youtu.be  This is a "Global Rueda" routine, with moves from other dance styles.  And the dance performance is embedded in a James Bond storyline.  It was performed on 2/19/17 at the San Francisco Rueda Festival.

https://youtu.be/q5BM2eRYDz4   This is the Rueda choreography that was done at a show in DC.

https://youtu.be/vBZPjOAVhB0   We call this the "street performers routine."

See you on the dance floor!!
