What's It All About?

Terpsichore's Dance Holiday was founded in the mid-1990s by folk dance families. Dance traditions experienced at Terpsichore include contra, squares, waltz, swing, blues, Morris, rapper, English Country, clogging, and more. 

Terpsichore's Holiday today brings together the folk traditions of dance, art, and music into a week-long community. It's a time to get away at the end of the year and try a new instrument, sing a few songs, create an art project, and advance your musicianship. Novice dancers wishing to experience a new kind of vacation are welcome.

The dance week takes place yearly from December 27th - January 1st. Arrive during the afternoon of December 27. Unpack before dinner. Enjoy a welcome gathering and dance. The four days of camp feature classes, community gatherings, and dancing through the night, ending with a grand finale on New Years Eve. Say goodbye after breakfast on January 1st, with new friends, songs, tunes, and memories to take home with you.
