Not doing anything special next week? Then join us at CDSS’s Adult and Family Week at Timber Ridge, in the foothills of WV—it begins this Saturday, August 10, and it IS special!
We like to say that participation and involvement are contagious at the week. It’s a terrific program for adults, children, families and young adults, featuring a mix of English and American dance, border morris, clog, song, music, arts and crafts, nature walks and more. Adults participate in their classes while children enjoy age-appropriate dance and music options, and everyone joins together twice daily for the All-Camp Gatherings and at mealtimes. Join program directors Gaye and Rachel Fifer, and their fantastic staff, for a relaxing and exhilarating week.
Two special MINI-COURSES are at the week as well:
Contra Dance Callers Course, led by the excellent Rick Mohr, is an intensive calling course for advanced beginner through intermediate callers who have a knack for some skills, a commitment to work on the others, and are eager to take their calling to the next level. Learn a lot, share a lot, and have fun doing it!
Community & Classroom Dance Leaders Course, led by longtime camp favorite DeLaura Padovan, with musicians Steve Hickman and John Devine, will have abundant dancing, as well as discussion/processing time, to really integrate shared experiences and take them back to their home communities.
See you there!
