Second Sun Rising: Fusion Partner Dance
October 9, 2016 at 7:00 pm–11:00 pm
Second Sun Rising is a monthly partner dance in Cambridge with movement rooted in the blues tradition but borrowing from tango, west coast swing, and other styles and with music ranging from lyrical to electronic and wherever our DJs take us. In honor of ArtWeek, we will be showcasing diverse interactive and static works by several artists from the local Burning Man, partner dance, and maker communities, including noted public artist Liz LaManche and recent MassArt graduate Michelle Thomas. Philadelphia area instructor Emiliano Estevez of DJX (the DJ eXperiment) is coming up to teach and play.
For this month’s all-levels class, we are bringing in Philadelphia instructor Emiliano Estevez, who has done trainings for our own local instructors; taught nationally; and has backgrounds in lindy hop, blues, hip-hop, house, tango, and a host of movements from many other genres. (He is also flown around the country purely for his DJ skills and will be DJing our night.)
No street shoes on the floor, so please bring dance shoes or dance in socks at your own risk, and we’d like to be kind to the environment, so please bring a reusable water container. Plastic cups will be available for $1 each if you require them. Tickets will be sold at the door.
