Our Story

The Dance Beyond Campout is hosted by Ecstatic Dance NYC & Dance Lab and is in collaboration with many other communities based in New York who share a commitment to creating safe & inclusive spaces for people to connect, express & heal through holistically designed experiences.

We celebrate dance as a means for self and communal transformation - and invite teachers, artists and musicians who align with this intention to share their offerings at our events.

This will be the second consecutive Dance Beyond Campout! We have done two retreats in Lake Atitlan, Guatemala & as well as a retreat in the Catskill Mountains in NY, and are now so excited to return to Camp Timber Trails for another summer campout.

Our intention is to take the energy of what we cultivate at our events in NYC and offer it in a beautiful natural setting. By being together for several days, we hope to go deeper into the practice of dance together, but to also explore aspects of community beyond dance; such as being nature, engaging in meaningful conversations, and generally creating a space for authentic connection as we explore living together for the weekend. 

We hope you will join us for this special inaugural Dance Beyond Campout!
