Hosted by Perry Louis, we are proud to present the second International Jazz Dance Weekender, a weekender 100% focused on the Jazz Dance scene covering all the styles within it and with an unrivalled lineup of international DJs connected to it past and present. If Jazz Dance is your thing there is simply no other place to be!

Come and experience three of London’s most iconic Jazz Dance club nights of recent years.. but in sunny Southern France in the pleasant Catalan town of Perpignan on the French/Spanish border at the Casa Musicale, a fantastic central venue. You can’t afford to miss this, a Jazz festival like no other. We will also have dance classes on the Saturday, exhibitions and all sorts of other things going on during the days surrounding the festival so why not come and make a holiday of it and catch a last dose of sunshine before the UK winter kicks in? It’s not expensive, and top of this we have cheap deals for festival goers for hotels and restaurants so you should be able to do this for roughly the same price as attending a weekender in the UK, and certainly you won’t find a holiday in the sun as good as this for cheaper!

15-18 OCTOBER 2015, AT THE CASA MUSICALE, PERPIGNAN FRANCE
The venue is very central, and about a 5 minute walk from the central Square, Place de la Republique.
MAIN EVENTS: The weekend will consist of dance classes during the day (saturday) and club sessions by night (except the legendary Shiftless Shuffle which will take place as it does traditionally on Sunday afternoon) with a fantastic lineup of UK and international DJs. three of London’s most iconic Jazz Dance club nights of recent years, each with a music policy relating to a different facet of Jazz dance, so we have:

Thursday 15th :

Welcome party!!

Friday 16th :
« WEAK AT THE KNEES »
Music Policy: Boogie, JazzFunk, Rare Grooves, P-Funk & a touch of Soul .

Saturday 17 th :
« MESSIN » AROUND »
Latin, Boogaloo, Funk & Acid Jazz.
Plus an exclusive performance by The JazzCotech Dancers!

Sunday 18th : 
« SHIFTLESS SHUFFLE »
Music Policy : Dancefloor Jazz, Fusion, BeBop, Afro, Latin!

On the Saturday afternoon there will be dance classes.

There also be before and after parties.

In the days surrounding the festival itself there will also be plenty of other events taking place not to mention wine tastings and food related delights (this is France after all!).. As well as all this happening in the town itself it is worth trying to find time to explore the surrounding countryside with mountains and beaches in close proximity littered with beautiful medieval villages.

TRANSPORT IN PERPIGNAN: Perpignan is a very small town and the majority of the centre is pedestrianised so it is easy to walk to and from the venue or other events – no taxis or public transport are really needed. There is a bus that costs under2€ to the nearby beach at CANET PLAGE which is 7.5 miles away and takes about 20 mins. Information on bus times and where to catch them will be provided nearer the time to ensure accuracy.

WEATHER: Perpignan is the sunniest place in France, and the weather should be between 23 and 26 degrees Celsius..

FLIGHTS: It’s difficult to quote on the prices of flights, as that depends when you book – the earlier the cheaper. As you get nearer the flight time and the plane gets fuller the prices go up, so if you book early Perpignan airport is just a few miles out of town with a bus direct to the town centre (15 mins) costing under €2. There are also nearby airports at GIRONA (just across the border in Spain) Beziers, and Carcassonne, which are all about an hour away. Please be sure to contact us on https://www.facebook.com/ jazzcotechweekender to discuss this, we are happy to help.
