Scholarship for Teachers   

Mainewoods Dance Camp invites teachers to learn about introducing dance into their classes.

Thanks to the generosity of one of our donors, we are currently offering a full scholarship (plus some travel expenses if you live more than 250 miles away) to Mainewoods Dance Camp this coming August.
