Ballroom joined forces with Summer Shake Up for DJ Camp 2023, offered by Marfa ISD in collaboration with several community partner organizations. The 2023 DJ Camp was a vinyl-only workshop led by members of the Chulita Vinyl Club ATX for Marfa students in grades five through eight.

The four-day camp is designed to engage the imagination of youth from all backgrounds and introduce them to the world of vinyl. Throughout the week, students learn and practice beat-matching, mixing, scratching, and more. While offering practical experience with turntables and vinyl records, The Chulita Vinyl Club ATX 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 an introduction to zine-making. Students are encouraged to use found music and images to create their own narratives, celebrating personal history and cultural exploration.
