Break out of the Winter doldrums with "Spring Fever" - a high-energy weekend of hot Contras, exuberant English country dance, and exhilarating music that is sure to bring on that elusive dancer's high.

Our widely acclaimed multi-track format is actually 3 complete camps side by side.  You can follow all Contra, all English, mix it up, or add spice from our "3rd rail" of  music, singing, calling, and other surprises.

Register now using our printed flyer!

Check out our top-notch musicians and wonderful nationally known callers:

  • Contra Sutra (Washington) featuring Dave Bartley (fretted things), Russel S. (percussion), Marni Rachmiel (flute), and Ryan McKasson (fiddle)
  • Footloose (North Carolina) featuring Jim Roberts (percussion), Rex McGee (fiddle), Pete Campbell (piano), and David DiGiuseppe (accordian)
  • Michelle Levy (California) - back by popular demand for her wonderful singing program

And there's more to come...

Whether you're a dancer, caller, or musician, the program will excite and challenge you.  We start with Contra and English Country dance but it doesn't end there.  Watch for surprises like waltz, swing, hambo, polka, French dancing, Irish ceili, and other set or couple dances, not to mention the music jam sessions.

Our experienced dance leaders and great live bands will bring you workshops that give you a good time while teaching you how to improve your technique.  And don't forget our Friday night welcome dance, our Saturday night "Community Blowout," and a final dance party to close out camp on Sunday afternoon!

Enjoy the wonderful ambiance of our site at Monte Toyon camp in Aptos, California, in the coastal redwoods just south of Santa Cruz.  You can dance, dance, dance, but there's even more to the camp - explore the hiking trails, join a sing-along, make new friends or just relax.
