DANCE CAMP 2019
A 9 day retreat in a beautiful, secluded setting
Earthsong's Dance, Drum & Movement Camp is a 9 day retreat in a private, natural setting, working with beautiful music and teachings from around the world. It is space where we can explore our innate spirit of playful wildness and gentle sensitivity. In order to stay true to the intentions of the camp there are certain boundraries we put in place:
Earthsong is a retreat space; this means that once camp starts on Saturday there are no more arrivals after that. We ask ticket-holders to commit to go on this 'journey' together by staying for the duration of the retreat. This means avoiding outside visits and departures before Sunday. This allows us to deepen our connection with the people around us and get the most out of the retreat.
Creating a Safe Space; We have a strict no drugs, no alcohol and no late night noise policy.

As Earthsong has grown in popularity there has been a conscious decision not to let the size of the camp grow. We all agree that the size of the camp is just right; any larger and we would lose the sense of intimacy and safety. Yet in 2010 the camp sold all its tickets by late March, and so lots of people, sometimes whole families, were disappointed.
With this in mind, and in the true Earthsong spirit of adventure, we launched a new camp in 2011; a seed from Earthsong that has taken root. This new camp has all the much loved ingredients of Earthsong; lots of drum and voice, world culture and healing arts, but also much more space to develop the emerging dance and movement workshops and events.
Our vision is of a growing resource of power, grace and beauty, where we can create a nature reserve for humans. We invite you to take part, to bring your creativity and skills to help continue to create this new event for Ireland, an event that we hope to see blossom over the coming years.
