Ballroom has once again joined forces with Summer Shake Up, offered by Marfa ISD in collaboration with other community partner organizations. The summer camp is free with breakfast, lunch, and transportation provided. Students grades five through eight are invited to participate.

For this year’s DJ Camp, DJ Bigface (aka Javier Arredondo) returns to the Big Bend to offer essential guidance in real-live party-rocking skills. Bigface served as the teacher at the inaugural Ballroom DJ Camp in 2010, sharing the knowledge he’s gained through years as a music educator at Austin’s DJ Dojo. Bigface is also known for ambitious parties helmed by DJs and funk bands, and featuring breakdancers, “fire tamers” and acrobats. He will be joined by two members of the Chulita Vinyl Club, an all-girl, all-vinyl club for self-identifying women of color.

Students will learn directly on DJ equipment and experiment with mixing songs and sampling music. The classes are designed to engage the imagination of students from all musical backgrounds. While getting practical experience on the equipment is a core component of the camp, Bigface and Chulita Vinyl Club will also present DJing as an art form with a rich culture and history, with portions of each class covering the history of the DJ and basic music theory.

DJ Camp is made possible by the generous support of Brown Foundation, Inc, Houston; Permian Basin Area Foundation; Ballroom Marfa Board of Trustees; and Ballroom Marfa Members.

In kind support provided by Bar Nadar, the Capri, Hotel Saint George, Marfa Recording Company, and The Windmill Retreat.

Special thanks to DJ Big Face, Chulita Vinyl Club, Marfa Independent School District, Ann Marie Nafziger, Emma Rogers, and the parents and students of Marfa.
