Dance Camp Notices and Announcements:
PLEASE SHARE THIS INFO WITH YOUR DANCING FRIENDS!
Please tell your dancing friends that we strongly encourage them to sign up for the listserv if they are not on it already. We will post all the latest info on Camp to the listserv and we would hate for them to miss some significant tidbits because they aren't getting listserv messages. Signing up is easy...just jump online and go to: thedancingbears.org where they will find a white box 3/4 down on the right-hand side of the Home Page to “Subscribe to Listserver”. Clicking on the box will get them to another box in which to type one’s email address. (If there is a problem contact Linda at [email protected]). It is also easy to remove one’s name from the list after Camp should one not want to continue to receive Bears and dance-related emails.
DANCE CAMP NEEDS YOUR TALENT!! JOIN OUR CADRE OF AMAZING WORKSHOP TEACHERS AND MUSICIANS!
Greetings All! The Dancing Bears Dance Camp is coming Memorial Day
weekend, May 22-25. We are looking for folks who want to teach us to
dance, as well as musicians who will play for those classes. In past years, in addition to our "usual" dance and music classes, our classes have included yoga, massage, Irish dance, juggling, rounds, and shape note singing--all taught by talented locals. It's a great way to be a part of Camp and you even get paid a little!! We always have kids coming to Camp every year so a kid or family workshop could be just the thing. If you have a workshop in mind that you would like to offer, please send me a short description and information on what your workshop would need in the way of music/supplies/space and we'll give it our consideration. If you know of folks who might be interested but aren't on this listserv please share this request with them. Feel free to contact me via email at [email protected] or call 907-258-1937 (Anchorage). I'm looking forward to seeing you at Camp!!!

AGAIN THIS YEAR—DANCE CAMP DISCOUNT RATES FOR
We are pleased to continue to offer a discount for students 19-25
—Perky Student Bears (with an ID and registering before April 30)
will be able to attend Camp for only $220…a $75 savings from the
regular adult cost for Camp. Student Bears (19-25) on
Scholarships will also be discounted to one-half the cost of the
discounted tuition. Please be sure to register early, and if you
want a scholarship please read the Scholarship info below.
A REMINDER ABOUT DANCE CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS
Cost for this year's Dance Camp will be $295 for Perky Bears
($220 Perky Student Bears)…and it gets more expensive as you
procrastinate on getting your registration in. As always, if you
might be looking for a way to lighten the financial load for Camp
“tuition”, we have several scholarships available. Scholarships
cover half the cost of your Camp fee and entail participating in 7-8
hours of Camp work, generally helping in the kitchen, but there
are also some for other activities such as helping with the Silent
Auction and Camp and bathhouse cleanup.
Scholarships are awarded on a first come, first served basis. A
scholarship does NOT guarantee that you will get into Camp...you
still need to register as usual. And you must be CONFIRMED as a
Scholarship Bear BEFORE registering as one. The details of the
tasks and the registration process may be less confusing if we
chat about them verbally, so if you are interested in a scholarship
or have any questions about them, please contact Barbara
Rowland (223-2327 in Anchorage, or email
Happy Dancin'!! We can't wait to see you at Camp!!
