New for 2016:
  • New, low price for ages 22-25.   $199 includes 9 meals, lodging, snacks, and dancing for 3 full days, and 2 late-night dances.
  • Swallowtail is unavailable, but our unique Play With the Band workshop tradition will be carried on by Great Bear Trio!
  • We will finally achieve a long-time goal of a professionally-led drum-circle, thanks to the Zombies' drum-master extraordinaire, Bob Douglas.  So don't forget to add djembe, or doumbek, or cowbell to your packing list!

Our new ballroom:  120' x 60' sprung wood dance floor, comfy seating, kitchen, restroom, and even a "Jennie dress" boutique.
Open-air dance pavilion overlooking the pond
