”Swingkids goes Vaudeville!” – 2015
Week 1 (27/6-3/7) & Week 2 (4/7-10/7)
Welcome to this years edition of swingkids/swingteens summercamp. We will explore ”the heart of american entertainment”: Vaudeville! Vaudeville is a show with a wide range of artists and concists everything from dance, song, animals, cirkus and theater. This concept was popular during the late 1800 and all the way until 1930 which means it coexists with Lindy hop in a perfect way. Except Lindy hop, charleston and excentric dancing you will also get to try cirkusacts like groupacrobatics, Rolla-bolla, Diablo, Juggling walking on ropes! To inspire and teach you we have invited Björke & Sandra Bruun who are professional cirkusartists.
You will learn more about The Marx brothers, Josefine Baker (the girl dancing in a bananaskirt), Clayton ”Peg leg” Banes (the onelegged tapdancer) and Ann Pennington who 1926 brought Lindy hop to the world of Vaudeville.
The heart of our camp is offcourse still Lindy hop and the dance will fit perfectly on this journey through american show business!
