International folk dance and music is an exhilarating gateway to experiencing and enjoying other cultures.
Cultures featured by our world-class dance staff in daily classes include countries in the Caucasus region, and France; music will be supplied for some of the workshops and all of the three hour evening dance parties by the incomparable eight-member Pinewoods Band, directed by Tom Pixton, and augmented with surprise guest musicians!
In addition to two daily dance classes geared to all campers, the sessions offer a daily “party prep” class covering classic international folk dances that are done at the evening parties, advanced dance classes, “Culture Corners”, singing, drumming, and instrumental workshops, and late night after-parties – and you’ll still have time for swimming, boating, and the simple pleasure of being at Pinewoods!
With a weekend session (June 22-26) geared toward adults and a FolkDays session (June 26-29) that adds age-appropriate classes and activities for children, or the option of staying for Both Sessions, there’s truly a place for everyone. See you there!
Weekend 6/22-6/26: Thurs. p.m. to Mon. a.m.
Folk Days 6/26-6/29: Mon. p.m. to Thurs. a.m.
Both Sessions 6/22-29: Thurs. p.m. to Thurs. a.m.
