Offering concurrent programs!
The Daily Schedule offers a rich combination of classes expertly taught by staff members as well as opportunities to share skills during camper-led workshops. Dance all day and night or balance your schedule with music, singing, storytelling, puppetry, and crafts, or simply relax and laugh around the campfire.
- Warm-up & Stretch gently each morning before breakfast, stroll through the towering redwoods or commune with other early risers around the campfire while sipping your first latte, prepared at the Fa-So-La Café
- Contra Dance in the morning, afternoon and evening! Callers Lisa Greenleaf and Carol Ormand will provide lyrical, flowing contras, lively squares, challenging new dances and old favorites — clear, concise teaching, unflagging good humor, and charmingly dry wit guaranteed!
- A Time to Turn. Valerie Williams will present 19th and 20th Century couple turning dances (waltz, redowa, polka, and hambo) … until it’s time to melt into the Argentine Tango and Uruguayan Milonga.
- Directing Caller’s Forum, Lisa Greenleaf will address skills (understanding choreography, crafting a concise teaching vocabulary) and stage presence (being comfortable behind the mic, handling unexpected situations, and working with musicians). Carol Ormand will oversee additional practice during Open Mic.
- Bring your clogs or hard-soled shoes and Judy Erickson will thrill you with different styles of Traditional Percussive Dance: try slow, swingy Appalachian flat-footing, or explore English clog and Scottish hardshoe, the origins of Appalachian clogging.
- Sing, Sing out loud! Delight in blending your voice during Madrigals and Motets with Eden MacAdam-Somer, join a pre-dinner song circle, or groove with Ann Percival’s late night Harmony Blast.
- Pulling imaginative stories Out of Thin Air, creating gargantuan parodies and fractured tales, and viewing life through the eyes of puppet storytellers: unfold your story with Willy Claflin in daily storytelling classes. And, stay tuned to hear the true history of our country as only Willy can relay it.
- Grab Bag, class time scheduled for spur-of-the-moment camper-led workshops and one-day intensives, is for sharing talents. Master engineer Marty Brenneis, decoder of all of those knobs and buttons, will unveil the Magical Mysteries of Manipulating Sound.
- Each afternoon, Expect the Unexpected: parties, swimming, or exploring with a Woodlands naturalist. Nurture your crafty spirit during community craft workshops, luxuriate with a massage, peruse the well-stocked 24/7 Bookstore, and scour The Grande Marché clothing boutique.
- Under the Light of the Silvery Moon, stop in at the Rock’n Roadhouse, preen for themed evening parties, play cards & board games, and unravel hair-raising tales and old-time tunes by the crackling campfire.
