Register now!

Come join us for a milestone 70th Texas Camp, with fantastic dance teachers! Richard Powers will present vintage social dance styles from the 1920s, 30s and 40s, so we can add flair to our one-step, swing, cross-step waltz and more. Cristian Florescu and Sonia Dion will share with us more of their incomparable collection of line, circle and couple folkdances from Romania.

To everyone — whether you attend our camp regularly or whether (and especially!) you have not attended in a while – we hope to see you in November, so we can celebrate this great achievement together and create more wonderful memories!
