"In a racist society, it is not enough to be non-racist, we must be anti-racist.” (Angela Davis)

Blues is an original form of African-American art. We as blues dancers cannot stay silent about racism or ignore it.

But where to start? The first step is probably to listen and to learn and then to take action.

Here are two articles that can be a good starting point. And of course, there’s tons of other material out there.

How we did the Stay-at-home Blues Dance Party

Stormy Weather – Bremen Blues Exchange – Blues Dancing in Bremen

Phew! Four hours ago we decided to cancel this. We were really nervous about the decision. At the moment of the decision we had no idea about what you would think about it, we had no idea about what this means financially. We quickly grabbed our phones and called the locations we were planning to party at or eat at, we called the bands and told them about our decision, and we sent an email to all registrants.

Our love goes out to you ❤️ The feedback we're getting here on Facebook and via mail is so heartwarming, encouraging and understanding that we want to close-embrace you. We'll do – but maybe wait a few weeks.

Our love goes out to Kuß Rosa, Tau, Drunken Hearted Men, Swing-Kantine - Lindy Hop tanzen in Bremen, and Rock&Wurst ❤️. They all understood and supported our cancellation and we're not running into heavy financial problems.

We'll now carefully watch how things will evolve and make new plans for a different weekend once we have a better understanding.

To make sure that you don't miss it: Follow our page here on Facebook or sign up for our newsletter on www.bremenblues.de

Take care and see you soon.

Dear Stormy Weather people!

Today we decided to postpone our Blues Exchange.
It will NOT happen this weekend. We will find a new date and will let you know.

If you already paid for your ticket, of course you can get your money back. Simply message us with your bank account or your PayPal account. Please allow a few days to handle this.

So why are we cancelling?

When we first announced on Facebook that we’ll not cancel due to Covid-19, the situation in Germany and our neighbour countries was a lot different from today. Over the last days, the number of known cases has grown a lot. It looks like we’re getting in the same situation as Italy, just delayed by 1-2 weeks.
There’s an article that explains the current situation and the actions to take: https://medium.com/@tomaspueyo/coronavirus-act-today-or-people-will-die-f4d3d9cd99ca
The conclusion is: do everything that will delay the spreading of Covid-19 in order to keep the medical infrastructure from collapsing. Sadly, this also includes close physical contact.

Cancelling means disappointment as we were so looking forward to this event and have spent so much time preparing everything. It also means financial loss – for us and maybe also for you if you can’t cancel your train ticket or your hotel booking. But if we can save just one single life with it, it’s totally worth it.

We will see how the Corona situation evolves over the next weeks and then start to plan with a new date.

If you can’t cancel your trip and decide to come to Bremen anyway: please let us know and let’s grab a coffee or a beer together.

If you have any questions: Please let us know. We’ll work this out together.

Virtual hugs from
Eléna, Andy & Michael

Bemerkungen

Ich vermisse das Blues-Tanzen. Und zwar das miteinander einen Tanz kreieren, sich nach dem Tanz umarmen, Oxytocin... Bei Online-Angeboten und Solo-Kursen springt der Funken nur bedingt über. Geht es jemandem ähnlich? Ich suche daher eine Blues-Tanz-Partnerschaft - so einmal im Monat treffen (nur zu zweit) und dann privat Blues tanzen. Jemand Lust?
