Ashokan New Year’s Dance Camp Dec 31, 2017-Jan 3, 2018
Steve and I teach every year at this fabulous music and dance camp in the Catskills. A warm, friendly and welcoming place to learn new skills and sharpen old ones. Amazing musicians play dances each night and teach classes during the day, several dance instructors, including Steve and I teach classes too. Set in the beautiful Catskills with great outdoor activities. Enjoy great tasting food 3 meals a day and a night time snack at the dance break. A wonderful way to bring in the new year! Highly recommend it!
