No selfies … WTF happened? The epic Camp Savoy 2016

One and Only Jenny ThomasHi. So last weekend I attended my third Camp Savoy and boy, was it great! I must admit though, I took no selfies with the teachers … not because I finally matured but because of my swollen eye. “Oh, what happened?” – I hear you ask. Well, imagine black eye … except it wasn’t black. I am completely fine now except that horn on the right side of my forehead … I must have been naughty lately …

Anyway, let’s get back to the Camp Savoy post. Last year was a true blast and I blogged about it. Hell, I even vlogged about it. That was my first vlog entry and it took a lot of balls and lots of re-recording to make the way it is. It is not great but good enough to call myself as a YouTuber or vlogger and put it on YouTube. Good old days …

So Camp Savoy 2016 was great … I’d say greater than the last year. I was a little bit frustrated as I had no Wi-Fi in my room. But then again, who works on weekends, right? RIGHT? 😀 I sat by the Starbucks, launched my laptop and did fuck all since. My creative juice just didn’t flow. Beer didn’t help either.

We had so many international teachers, it was crazy. This is what I always loved about Camp Savoy – teachers from many continents (3), not just Europe. The class material in my advanced stream was advanced. We did lots of great moves that I am now using when I dance. Various variations, fancy footwork, crazy rhythms, etc …

We had solo jazz competition … I didn’t participate … I would have cut my leg off if I had won … Congratulations to my future solo jazz teacher, I’ll come to learn soon!

We also had Shirt Tail Stompers and Casey MacGill. We had the usual STS crew and ukele/piano player Casey. The music was a bit slower than usual STS but I loved it. That was a combo delivered perfectly!

I also love Camp Savoy because of its venue. It takes place at university of Surrey which is like a maze. Once you find all the shortcuts, travelling time decreases from shit loads of minutes when you get lost to 2 minutes … map does not help well when you are not good with direction … 😉

From my last post about the Chase Festival 2016, I hope you understand that I no longer post essays as reviews because nobody ain’t got no time for this shi… stuff. Especially when I take no selfies …

So I would like to congratulate Jenny once again, and say THANK YOU for yet another incredible Camp Savoy! Here’s to many more 😉
