The Folk Arts Center's international dance and music session at Pinewoods Camp in Plymouth, Massachusetts is the ideal time and place to "get away from it all"! 

Our dance instructors this year are the newly-discovered-and-enjoyed-by-us Baykal Dogan and the new-to-Pinewoods-and-highly-recommended Michèle Champseix.  

Baykal Dogan - Dances from the Balkans and the Caucasus
Baykal most recently taught at FAC's 2016 Oktoberfest Dance Weekend in Fairlee, Vermont; he has apprenticed with Tineke and Maurits van Geel, and specializes in dances from the Caucasus and the Balkans. He is also quite renowned as a drummer, and will be leading the drumming workshops at camp this year.

Michèle Champseix - French traditional and popular dances
Michèle teaches both the traditional and popular dances of France - think the bourrée of central France as well as waltz and mazurka.  She comes to us highly recommended and in a somewhat circuitious route through Roo Lester and others!  Accompanying Michèle will be Gabriele Coltri, from Milan, who plays "cornemuse du centre France" - also called a musette.

The Pinewoods Band - Tom Pixton (Director), Ralph Iverson, Barbara Pixton, Julia Poirier, David Skidmore, Brian Wilson, Susan Worland, and Patrick Yacono
Live music for the evening dance parties is provided by the incomparable Pinewoods Band, Tom Pixton, Director. For more information, including directions to camp and a list of what to bring, please refer to the FAC Pinewoods webpages.

A limitation of this registration service by Constant Contact is that you may register only ONCE under any given email address ... so if you have more than one person sharing an email address in your family, MAKE SURE to register them by pressing the "Add" button after you've registered yourself! If you forget, and can't get back into the form - don't despair, and certainly don't leave home without them (!), just call the FAC office and we'll take their registration over the phone. Or, you can download a pdf application from the FAC website and mail it in to the offices (address at the top of this page on the left).

This registration process will ask basic information about you and require a deposit.  After you have been accepted to camp, the FAC office will send you a link to another form that will gather more detailed information on arrival/departure from camp, housing preferences, dietary restrictions and camper job choices.
