Dates for 2014 Summer Camp are June 11-22 -- join us for a beautiful, enriching time of dancing in community and in nature. You don't have to attend for all 11 days -- shorter stays are available too, but we know once you're there, you won't want to leave!
Northern California Dance Collective is a non-profit organization and a community of conscious dancers, free spirits, and warm, friendly people. Our events include daytime classes in classes such as 5Rhythms, Soul Motion, contact improv, aerial dance, yoga, and more; nighttime dances, performances, and costume events; gourmet meals that we help prepare; and Kids Camp for the young ones.
Please mention Mark Metz or Conscious Dancer Magazine when you sign up!
We're not sold out yet – although we reached capacity the previous three years, our two extra days this year means more space for more campers.
We've got two enticing ways to make sure the dance floor is filled with the people you'd like to be with at camp. Read on for details about the referral bonus and group discount.
Refer a Friend – Get a $50 Bonus!
Word-of-mouth brings friends and family into this transformational community. Over the years, many have reported life-changing experiences. So, share your love of camp and receive a $50 bonus!
Can I recruit my friends even if I can't make it to camp? Yes! Submit the recruiter and recruited forms to report the referral and shazam, 50 bucks! You can keep it, split it with your friend, or give it to them to use towards their camp fee. How awesome is that?!
Group Rate Discount – 10% off for 4 people and 20% for 8 people, any registration option. Take advantage of our group rate discount, rally your posse, and share some savings among friends!
Work Exchange – More Ways for More Savings!
As a community-run event, our work-exchange program is one of the more popular ways to make camp accessible for more people.
Do you want a deep discount on camp fees, and have skills to offer in trade? We have just a few more positions to fill.
Kitchen Staff: If you have experience in restaurant kitchens, join the meal management team. Work under Sweetwater Farm & Liam McDermott catering and earn 30-80% off camp fees. Jobs range from opening and closing the kitchen, dishwashing and sanitation, meal set up or breakdown, and food preparation. You'll be free to attend either morning or afternoon classes, as well as all evening events, work part-time, and still get a discount – such a deal!
Lifeguard: We require candidates with current certificates, so if you have that watchful eye and would like free camp for days spent minding the waterfront, come on board! Find out more about our work-ex program and contact Otto to apply.
Our Stellar Teacher Line-up
With ten classes offered on most days, you get to create a perfect menu of dance each day.
Soul Motion, 5 Rhythms, and contact improvisation are always favorites. There's also Dancing Freedom, partner dance and Biodanza, plus classes in salsa, tango, hip-hop and aerial dance/acrobatics. Some classes integrate other arts, such as paint dance, PlayFormance and Body Tales. If you like to sing, you can express yourself in CircleSong, Tribal Choir, or kirtan – or the singing circles on the plaza. For more inward journeys, you might want a class in breath work, yoga, or authentic movement.
To present this rich variety and professional expertise, we have over 45 teachers bringing their brilliance to camp. Some of our new and returning instructors include: Jo Cobbett, Debbie Brown, Olivia Corson, Ashanna Solaris, Daniel Mollner, Scott Wells, Shira Yaziv, Stacey Butcher, and some of the Bay Area Soul Motion Collective, Jens Wazel, Jeremy Weichsel, and Michael Zipkin. What a beautiful collection of skill and inspiration!
