American Dance & Music Week is a vacation oasis amidst the inspiring setting of Pinewoods. The week is geared towards dancers and players alike, with an accomplished and engaging staff leading the way. Our featured dance classes range from contras and squares to couple dances, accompanied by some of the finest players in the country. Musicians can hone their craft with skillful teachers while enjoying various opportunities to learn new repertoire, as well as take part in the many informal jam sessions. Top this off with singing, laughing and socializing, and you have yourself a satisfying camp experience.
For musicians, there is plenty of opportunity to partake and learn in individual instrument classes as well as in the ensemble class, in which campers form small bands for focused learning.
Making new friends who come from all over the country makes camp even more fun, for not only does the week feature great dancing and music, but there is also an emphasis on community and connection. At meal times as well as at informal social gatherings and jams, folks have many opportunities to chat in a relaxed setting. Tying all of this together is our all-camp gathering featuring staff concerts, stories, jokes and laughs. American Week is a chance for individual talents to shine and be celebrated, and for all of us to come together for a rewarding experience -- please join us!
