more photos.

apparently our group drank 6 times as much coffee as the ordinary dance group they host at Pinewoods Dance Camp. And almost no decaf.

  2. Wonderful, inspiring 3 days getting back to reality. Went by way to fast! Thank you Plymouth Craft for all your efforts putting this together.

  3. We had a fantastic time and met some great people. Plymouth Craft and the Instructors can’t be thanked enough. Well worth the 1000+ mile round trip drive!
