ESC Week is the place to be! We bring you the best of English Country, Scottish Country, and Contra dancing—and much more. Come enjoy your favorite traditions while perhaps sampling something new in a fun and friendly session. From the energetic to the elegant, ESC offers a unique and satisfying mix of music and dance in daily classes and mixed evening programs.

In 2018, ESC returns with an exciting line up of dance, music, and other fun! This year's staff includes: Joanna Reiner, Terry Harvey, Alexandra Deis-Lauby, and Lisa Heywood leading our dance classes; and Kristen Planeaux & Andrew Taylor (from The Ripples), Aaron Marcus, Terry Traub, David Knight, Katie McNally, Daniel Beerbohm playing music and leading workshops, plus Dan Emery on pipes!

ESC is a rare opportunity to bring together dance communities in one magical setting—who knows what surprises you’ll find! So ESCape to the Cape this summer for the English Scottish Contra ESCperience!
