Event Description

Camp Folkmoot is back for 2019!

Held during Folkmoot's July International festival, Camp Folkmoot is a one-day dance camp for kids and teens between 3rd and 12th grades. Accompanying adults are welcome!

The camp is scheduled for 9am to 3pm July 19, with the final performance at 2:30 p.m. at the Folkmoot Friendship Center in Hazelwood.

The day includes dance instruction, “make-and-take” cultural crafts, lantern making for our event “Folkmoot After Dark” and culminates in a short performance with the groups and community participants. Families and youth groups are encouraged to register. Snacks, lunch, and drinks will be provided.

The cost is $30 for students and $10 for accompanying adults. The camp is open to dancers of all abilities who are inspired by dance and cultural arts. Participants will learn basic concepts and movements, gain an appreciation for the similarities and differences between cultures and hear captivating stories behind the dances of each international cultural group.

Discounts are available to groups of four or more if registered together. For more information, contact Elizabeth Burson at or Caroline at Register by clicking the link or by calling 452-2997.
