American Dance & Music Week is vacation heaven for dancers and players alike as some of the finest callers and musicians gather to share their expertise. This week features a wide variety of learning opportunities, from workshops geared towards skill building and technique, to delightfully engaging workshops for more relaxed enjoyment. Top it all off with singing, laughing and socializing, and you have yourself a special summer camp experience, built around community and connection.

Check out the Class Descriptions for details about the wonderful classes we have planned. There truly is something for everyone:

  • The best of American dance: Contras, Squares and Clogging with a stellar teaching staff.
  • Modern Western Squares for Contra Dancers: Love contra medleys or interesting patterns? This kind of square dancing is for you! We are pleased to offer an intensive mini-course that will get you up and dancing in no time.
  • Swirling social dance: Waltz technique, English Country (try it, you’ll like it!), and couple dances from around the world.
  • Making music: Fiddle technique, groove tunes for everyone (musicians, singers and speakers), lots of jamming and two singing workshops.
  • Creative expression: Make a “cranky" art project, which combines art, story telling and a lot of fun imagination, and a daily gathering to showcase the talents of both campers and staff.

And finally, there’s a great evening dance every night, along with informal social gatherings and parties. Folks come from all over the country, and we have a great time dancing and playing together. Join us!
