One of the best ways to get your dancing during the summer is to go to a week of dance camp. There are two organizations that run them in the East and several in the West. Among the best are:
Country Dance and Song Society Inc. – They have eight weeks of camps – American dance and music, English dance and music, early music, harmony of song and dance for the singers, and a number of family-oriented camps, all in delightful settings.
Ashokan Fiddle and Dance Camps – Northern, Southern, Western/Swing, Family, and guitar weeks in a rustic setting.
