Contradance Community Camp

Easy to learn (no footwork necessary) contradancing to live music (looped/ traditional/ celtic/ fusion/ techno); with a caller who instructs (but with room for dancers to improvise and embellish) on three evenings and three mornings under our dance tent as well as daytime workshops, jams, dances and concerts. Half the moves are with your partner, half with everyone else, resulting in a tribal vibe (with stomping, clapping, and hooting), where the Zen is flow, synchrony, bonding, playfulness, and inclusion (appropriate for all ages and possible for many disabled), NOT competition or perfection – if you are smiling, you are doing it right, and everyone who shows up can have fun.
