Summer Shake Up

DJ Bigface |  Si Mon Cecilia Emmett

Ballroom joined forces with Summer Shake Up, offered by Marfa ISD in collaboration with other community partner organizations for DJ Camp 2018. The summer camp was free with breakfast, lunch, and transportation to/from MISD provided. Students grades five through eight were invited to participate.

For our eighth annual DJ Camp Ballroom Marfa welcomed DJ Bigface, Si Mon Cecilia Emmett of the Chulita Vinyl Club and Isaac Iskra to the Big Bend to offer essential guidance in real-live party-rocking skills. Students learned directly on DJ equipment and experimented with mixing songs and sampling music. The classes were designed to engage the imagination of students from all musical backgrounds. While getting practical experience on the equipment was a core component of the camp, Bigface, Si Mon and Isaac Iskra also presented DJing and breakdance as an art form with a rich culture and history, with portions of each class covering the history of DJ culture, music collectives and basic music theory.
