2015 Camp Dates
English & American Traditional Participatory Dance, Music and Song
Each summer, the Country Dance and Song Society runs residential weeks for adults and families where we get to experience traditional English and North American dance and music in beautiful outdoor settings. Each weeklong program, while including some of each, has a unique focus and offers its own mix of dance, music, song and special workshops. There are daily classes, a dance party each evening (sometimes with a concert), followed by late-night activities, plus there is swimming, canoeing, and relaxing with old friends and new. Not to mention the scrumptious meals, fresh air, and break from our daily hectic lives. Programs are held near Plymouth, MA (Pinewoods); High View, WV (Timber Ridge); and Lyman, NH (Ogontz).

As returning campers will see, there is not a week named English & American Dance Week in 2015. There will be some adjustments to the other programs to include and promote the breadth of CDSS programming. Harmony of Song & Dance will have an additional dance class offering in the afternoon, making it possible to dance each class period, English Dance Week will include a daily contra and/or square class, and American Dance & Music Week will include a daily English dance offering. All of our Family programs will have their usual mix of genres; adults with or without children are welcome. A new week, co-programmed by CDSS, Revels, Inc., and Revels North, will be held at Ogontz in 2015. There will be details on each program available in September.
