Summer Shake Up

DJ Dada

For 2019 DJ Camp Ballroom joined forces with Summer Shake-Up, offered by Marfa ISD in collaboration with other community partner organizations. DJ Camp was free with breakfast, lunch, and transportation to/from MISD provided. Students, grades five through eight, were invited to participate.

Students learned skills 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 gaining practical experience with music technology and DJ equipment wais a core component of the camp, Dada also presented DJing 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.
