Virtual Hey Days - June 17-20, 2021

Join us for a virtual Hey Days June 17-20, 2021. We will have lots of things to see and do in true Hey Days fashion, tailored to the unusual nature of an online 'camp'!

Each day will be full of activities, beginning at 10:00 am PDT and ending at approximately 8:00 pm PDT. We will take advantage of the virtual environment to connect more dancers from around the world with many more staff and individual sessions than we would normally be able to do.

We will have a wide range of presentations and workshops, plus a game night, a movie night (bring popcorn), a camper gathering, tea, wine, and chocolate parties, a jigsaw puzzle ‘room’, and a look at dance communities around the world.

Most events will be "Live" and will include Question and Answer periods, and some will be pre-recorded.
