Music & Dance Camps

Since 1980 our camps have been a destination and a home-away-from-home for music and dance enthusiasts of all ages who are eager to delve deeper into tradition and self expression. Whether you are a beginner, a professional, or somewhere in between, Ashokan is a place to leave the cares of the world behind, expand your abilities, sing, dance, and play with new friends! Open to all folks, all ages, all orientations. Work exchange, youth discounts and scholarships are available. Click each camp to see staff, schedule, tuition, lodging, and more.
