Summer Dance Camp 2023!
~an all-inclusive, conscious dance retreat~
June 11-June 18
Registration is open! This year's camp will be at the beautiful
Camp Hye Sierra, our usual location.
If you've never been to Dance Camp (or even if you have),
check out the video below to get a taste of what it's like.
Also be sure to check out our FAQ page and scroll down to the "Welcome" section below.
We invite you to dance, play, connect, celebrate, and get inspired and renewed with us as we co-create a dance village in the southern Sierras, with daytime classes in a wide range of dance modalities as well as yoga, music, and art, and all kinds of great evening events. Relax, sun yourself by the lake, go for a swim or a canoe ride, play frisbee or volleyball, make new friends and talk with old ones – there’s a wide range of experiences available to newcomers and returning campers alike.
In addition to our great schedule of classes led by professional facilitators, there are lots of opportunities for performing as well as for camper-led activities, relaxation, and evening DJ’ed dances. As always, there will be a great Kids Camp program for the little ones to keep them happy and engaged while their parents take classes or just relax by the lake. We will once again have delicious, organic meals that will excite your taste buds and meet your specific dietary needs, prepared by our professional chefs.
Come for all of camp to take full advantage of all the experience has to offer, or join us for just a few days, if that’s all your schedule permits. We have a sliding scale in our registration fees plus a young adult rate to make sure camp is accessible. Work-exchange and some partial scholarships are available if you need additional help to get to camp.
In this unique retreat space, you get to dance, play, connect with other dancers, and enjoy the beauty of nature. After a few days, you’ll find yourself dropping into a sweet space that will heal your soul and invigorate your spirit. Many of us wish it would never end! After our closing circle, we take these good feelings and new friends home with us and find ourselves looking at the world in new ways.
