Pinewoods English-Scottish-Contra Sessions

ESC: July 1-5, 2019

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 2019, ESC returns with an exciting line up of dance, music, and other fun! This year's staff includes: Melissa Running (English), Katherine Giacoletti (Scottish), Carl Levine (Contra), and David Roodman (Morris) leading our dance classes; and Dave Wiesler, Aaron Marcus, Susie Petrov, Nora Smith, Susie Lorand, Josh Burdick, and Laurie Tupper 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!
