Come join us, April 17-19, 2020 — Escape the noise and rush, and get your dance on! Just 25 minutes from State College, PA, there's a comfy cabin with your name on it, and tons of delicious food, plus camp fires, s'mores, all day workshops and all night dancing!
Everything is included with your weekend pass — lodging, food, workshops, socials, and more.
(Registration for Camp Westie 2020 will open soon!)
We believe in community, and how a tribe of confidence surrounding us can empower us to do things we never thought possible.
We believe in connection. The kind that allows you to feel someone’s heart, someone choices, someone's passion, through one subtle movement. In the waiting, an energy builds between two people and it’s building up to the incredible visual display of emotions that tells a story.
We believe the best dances happen when we hold nothing back and leave our hearts on the dance floor.
We teach people to connect their hearts to their movements, so when the music gives them a blank canvas, their soul is ready to create.
Philippe comes from the competition world, and Flore from the world of social dancing (Boogie-Woogie, Swing, Salsa, West Coast Swing) — a pairing that adds unique flow and style to their dance.
As a couple, they rose rapidly in national and international competitions and took it to the biggest French stages with Charly Moser's dance company, Feeling Dance Show, known for their numerous TV and live appearances. In 2013, they decided to go full-time as instructors and moved to Montreal, Canada.
Today, they are emerging West Coast Swing Showcase champions, having placed Top-4 at the US Open 2017 and Top-5 at the US Open 2016. They have also won Top-5 placements at several NASDE events since they began competing in the Showcase division in 2014, and they are reigning Canadian Champions, having won back-to-back in 2016 and 2017.
Your home for the weekend is the beautiful Krislund Retreat Center, located just 20 minutes from State College, PA.
We're taking you back to the good old days of summer camp. Prepare to make friends! You'll either get your own twin bunk (in one of our awesome camp houses), or be paired with a member of your same group on double beds (4 friends in a super-luxurious cabin).
The camp will provide a top-sheet. You're responsible for bringing your comfiest pillow and blanket.
We'll provide breakfast and lunch each day, plus dinner on Friday and Saturday, including coffee, tea, and soft drinks at every meal.
We're also stocking up on awesome snacks and drinks to enjoy between workshops and during our late-night socials. (When you register, tell us what your favorites are!)
And, of course, there'll be plenty of s'mores to enjoy by the campfire!
The first time we set foot into the lodge at Camp Krislund, we knew it was the place to hold Camp Westie. We've never seen a more beautiful, cozy dance floor in all our lives. We can't wait to share it with you! (There'll also be space for individual practice, and private lessons.)
