On the surface, our program is simple:
  • Provide an adult traditional American dance and music camp that is appealing to serious adult dancers and stands on its own.
  • Offer age appropriate dance instruction and activities to children.
  • Provide opportunities for all ages to enjoy music and dance together.

American folk dances and the associated traditional music embody fundamental values of great worth to our culture, our nation and our children. We can promote these values by opening doors for greater participation by new dancers and musicians and, in particular, by nurturing newfound love of dancing and music by children and youth. There is no better way to share time together than in dance and making the music of dance. Our job is to use, and thereby preserve, the joyful dances and music we inherited -- and to pass it all on to the next generation.
