Dance Camp Notices and Announcements:
PLEASE SHARE THIS INFO WITH YOUR DANCING FRIENDS!
Please tell your dancing friends that we strongly encourage them to sign up for the listserv if they are not on it already. We will post all the latest info on Camp to the listserv and we would hate for them to miss some significant tidbits because they aren't getting listserv messages. Signing up is easy...just jump online and go to: thedancingbears.org where they will find a white box 3/4 down on the right-hand side of the Home Page to “Subscribe to Listserver”. Clicking on the box will get them to another box in which to type one’s email address.It is also easy to remove one’s name from the list after Camp should one not want to continue to receive Bears and dance-related emails.
DANCE CAMP NEEDS YOUR TALENT! JOIN OUR CADRE OF AMAZING WORKSHOP TEACHERS AND MUSICIANS!
Dancing Bears Dance Camp is Memorial Day weekend, May 26 - 29, 2023. We are looking for folks who want to teach us to dance, as well as musicians who will play for those classes. In past years, in addition to our "usual" dance and music classes, our classes have included yoga, massage, Irish dance, juggling, rounds, and shape note singing--all taught by talented locals. It's a great way to be a part of Camp and you even get paid a little!
We have kids coming to Camp every year so a kid or family workshop could be just the thing. If you have a workshop in mind that you would like to offer, please send me a short description and information on what your workshop would need in the way of music/supplies/space and we'll give it our consideration. If you know of folks who might be interested but aren't on this listserv please share this request with them. contact me via email at [email protected] or call 907-360-9448 (Anchorage).
We will have online registration available again this year. The link will go live on March15. The simplest way to register is to use the
link button labeled Online Registration.
If you choose to use a credit card, there will be an added convenience fee. You are welcome to send a check if you prefer not to incur that cost. Details will be online.
The Playshop Schedule is still being created and is not available at this time.
AGAIN THIS YEAR—DANCE CAMP DISCOUNT RATES FOR STUDENTS 19-25!
We are pleased to offer a discount for students 19-25 —Perky Student Bears (with an ID and registering before April 30)
will be able to attend Camp for only $240. Student Bears on Scholarships will pay half; if you want a scholarship please read the information below.
A REMINDER ABOUT DANCE CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS
Cost for this year's Dance Camp will be $330 for Perky Bears and $165 for Perky Student Bears. If you are looking for a way to lighten the financial load for Camp, we have several scholarships available. Scholarships cover half the cost of your Camp fee and entail participating in 7-8hours of Camp work, generally helping in the kitchen, but there are also some for other activities such as helping with the Silent Auction and Camp cleanup.
Scholarships are awarded on a first come, first served basis. A scholarship does NOT guarantee that you will get into Camp...you need to register as usual. You must be CONFIRMED as a Scholarship Bear BEFORE registering as one. The details of the tasks and the registration process may be less confusing if we chat about them. If you are interested in a scholarship or have any questions please contact Barbara Rowland in Anchorage, or email [email protected] soon to get the scoop!
