New Mexico August Camp is the Southwest's premier International Folk Dance weekend of workshops, evening parties, live music, community and more.
Dancers new and seasoned alike come to August Camp for its unique and welcoming community. We have years of experience under our belts making this one of the best residential-style workshops in the country, and continually strive to improve it even further. Between internationally renowned guest dance leaders and musicians, camper-organized extra activities like music jams and birdwatching walks, and an all-day Children’s Program, there’s something to make this a fabulous weekend for everyone! This year we will be hosted on the campus of New Mexico Tech, conveniently located just one hour from Albuquerque and New Mexico's only international airport.
...and elsewhere, including Oregon, Massachusetts, California, and even Canada! So no matter where you're from, we would love for you to join us and extend even farther our network of awesome people connected by appreciation for international folk dance and music. And: if you have come to Camp but don't see your group here, contact the webwrangler Mirinisa. We love to represent our diverse and far-reaching community!
