Re: “Community Drum Circle

Great fun meeting in the beautiful park right next to the tennis courts and parking lot in the shade. Bathrooms nearby. Fun group of folks. Bring a chair and water. Your drum or noise maker.
No experience necessary.
Fun to play with nice people - beginners to old hand drummers.
Stop by and pick up a noise maker and join in.

Re: “Roman Barten-Sherman & the Interstellar Blues Orchestra Album Release

I have heard Roman Barten-Sherman play solo several times on the Congress patio. At a mere 12 years old his mastery of vintage acoustic blues is beyond phenomenal. You will probably be hearing much more about this young prodigy in Tucson (and beyond) so if you have any appreciation at all for early blues go see them on Saturday. You will be glad you did.

Re: “Ballroom Blast Dance Workout Class

Wow, this is great. Dance is the only kind of exercise I like but most exercise classes are just jumping around to the music. Here you get exercise and learn real dancing.

You start with the basic steps (which are an exercise in themselves) and then see how they evolve into the different dances. Yolanda is great at not only breaking the steps down but also seeing exactly which part of your body isn't quite right. She has tips about partnering, so you can further refine your dancing once you know the basics.

Designed to give you the basis and confidence to go out on the town.

Re: “Indoor-Outdoor Antique Fair

I attended this event for the first time today and I loved it! A good amount of booths, great homemade baked goods, and free admission. There was a great assortment of items and the prices were reasonable. I can't wait to go to the next fair!

Re: “No Excuse Mom Free Workout

I love being a member of the No Excuse Moms group here in Tucson. They are some of the most supportive people that I have know in a long time. These woman have not only helped me feel better emotionally, physically but have helped me reach goals in life. I love going to the workouts in the park. Its great to get some fresh air and sunshine, while the kids have a playmate. We have all started at different points in life and we all have different goals for ourselves. But EVERY woman, mother, daughter, wife in this group is there to help push, support and back the choices you want. #NEMSTRONG #NEM

Re: “No Excuse Mom Free Workout

I haven't been able to make it to the workouts yet because I work on Saturdays, but I absolutely love this group! Everyone is so nice and supportive and I love seeing people's meal plans, and their personal journeys. Everyone's journey is different and it's so nice to have a group of people who understand that and are willing to support each other regardless of where they are personally.

Re: “No Excuse Mom Free Workout

Laughter, exercise, support, and comradery; this is how I describe No Excuse Moms Tucson. These ladies are supportive and uplifting to ALL women. They are genuinely friendly and welcoming to everyone who takes part in the group. This group is proof that EVERY mom has the ability to do at least something every day to positively impact her own health and set an example for her family.

Re: “CDSS Centennial Celebration Tucson Tour Stop

Among the FREE workshops being offered are:

Playing for Dances w/ Jaige & Adam

Exploring the basics of providing music for a contra dance. How to select appropriate repertoire; understanding the musical structure and how it relates to the dance; interacting with the caller; and learning the language of contra dance choreography. Bring your instruments!

Appalachian Flatfooting w/ Matthew

Part of a broad spectrum of overlapping traditions which includes tap, swing, and Charleston, Appalachian flatfooting and clogging are a blend of European, West African, and American Indian dances. While tap is often associated with jazz, clogging and flatfooting have close ties to Appalachian old time music. Exploring the highly improvisational nature of these traditions, we will draw from both clogging and flatfooting vocabulary and examine the places where these forms intersect and overlap. We will explore phrasing, musicality and economy of motion to acquire a solid foundation of rhythmic building blocks. A great class for students of any level; from beginners who want fast-paced steps and improv drills, to advanced dancers who want to hone their technique, facility and repertoire. No previous experience necessary. Leather-soled shoes are recommended but not required.

Body Rhythms w/ Matthew

Many vernacular dance forms have a tradition in which the human body is the primary instrument. Matthew’s style of body percussion is inspired by hambone, new “body music” ensembles like Stomp and Brazil-based Barbatuques, African-American stepping and other dance traditions. Students will explore polyrhythmic patterns of clapping, snapping, and stepping, in which a focus on musicality makes for a delicious musical movement-experience. A great class for students of any level from beginners to advanced dancers.

Melody Playing for Dances w/ Jaige & Adam

Discover why some tunes work better for contra than others and learn how to reconstruct melodies to make them dance-friendly. The scope of this workshop also includes creating “sets”, evaluating how well two tunes go together in a medley and navigating segues; the responsibilities of a melody player; counter-melodies and harmonies. All instruments welcome.

Laying the Groove w/ Adam and Matthew

Every instrument is a rhythm instrument. This workshop presents exercises and examples to develop solid foundational support for dance music. Topics include matching the pulse to the characteristics of the dance choreography, “swinging” the beat, considering tempo, and discovering the “groove” in both melody and back-up patterns. All instruments welcome!

Allowing Movement w/ Jaige

This workshop presents an opportunity to explore habitual movement and response patterns in a fun and enlightening way... learn how to undo unnecessary tension and encourage a lightness of being that allows movement to happen without the effort, fatigue or pain we so commonly become accustomed to. Discover a graceful ease of mobility and experience greater freedom.
