Music & Dance Camps

“It’s about sharing the joy!”

When you first experienced traditional music & dance, did a magical sensation spark inside you? At Ashokan you can re-connect to that excitement and develop the skills to re-create that sound, feel, and motion! 

Sing, dance, jam with new friends, and leave the cares of the world behind. 

Ashokan Music & Dance Camps take place in a beautiful natural setting with flexible pricing that includes camping and meals. Private rooms and bunks are also available on site. Families and folks of all ages are welcome. Campers under 18 must attend with a parent or guardian. 

Weather permitting, all classes will be held in outdoor covered areas, with indoor & outdoor seating for meals. Attendance will be limited to allow for greater personal space. Read our Covid Safety Protocol.
