17th - 20th of August 2017
In August 2017 it's time for the third edition of Ceuvel Swing Camp! A weekend full of Lindy-Hop group and private classes, and other styles to be inspired by!
Ceuvel Swing Camp is coming back for the third year! A unique weekend with a special concept: Private classes for everybody. Please read that again, a private class for every participant.
- 4 Rooms for all private classes
- 12+ hours of lindyhop group clases and other tasters in the big party room
- Everything in walking distance
- Switch Jack & Jill
- Fusion/alternative party room
- Our own cook providing lunch, dinner, desserts and snacks
Private classes (included!)
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.)
These private classes can be with a Lindy-Hop teacher, but during the weekend we also have people with other skills present. Feel free to ask them for a private class too!
For two days, all day long, there are four rooms where private classes are going on. In the meantime, 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 group classes, movement basics, solo jazz and more. Check out the schedule for an impression.
If you're joining the third edition of Ceuvel Swing Camp, make sure to inform yourself on our bottom-up, decentralised, self-managed, structured yet unstructured, go-berzerk way of scheduling all these private classes! This will happen on Friday night before the party.
Last year the pure collaboration happiness of it was a great success!
And of course in the evenings it's party time! In the main room: Lindy-Hop, and in the extra room, after the first year's raging success: Fusion all night long! Modern music, blues music, tango-ish music. Use all the new stuff you've learned to get creative at these parties that are guaranteed fun.
At the Saturday evening party we will have live music from Doctor Bernard and the Swing Cats! Bernard Berkhout is actually a doctor of a profession, but outside his office he follows his greatest passion: music. In the 1980s and 1990s, he mostly played with his "Swing Mates" at all Dutch Jazz festivals and in theaters. and the weekly magazine Elsevier named him the Dutch "King of Swing". But around 2006 there was a change: In order to give priority to another passion, he focused primarily on performing with the "Swing Orchestra", a 16-man strong Benny Goodman / Fletcher Henderson-oriented Big Band, which performed throughout Europe. At Ceuvel Swing Camp Bernard will be playing with a small combo "The Swing Cats".
