This is a bit off-topic for Kickery, but may be of interest to historical dancers who enjoy seeing what's happening with the waltz in the modern social dance world.
From June 17-19, I will be the co-director (but not teaching at) Santa Clara Waltz Weekend, in Santa Clara, California. This will be a weekend of free-spirited and creative modern social dance outside the modern ballroom/Dancesport framework. The primary focus will be waltz (rotary waltz, cross-step waltz, fusion waltz, blues waltz, and other modern forms), and the teaching staff will include top teachers from the Bay Area (Richard Powers, Joan Walton), Seattle (Ari Levitt), and Texas (Campbell Miller and Chris Mayer).
The venue is lovely (and air-conditioned) Santa Clara University, with nice sprung-wood dance floors.
