Other Opportunities

Cumberland Dance Week offers several skill-building opportunities through its callers' workshops, sound apprenticeship program, and dance band workshop. Dance organizations sometimes offer financial assistance to members of their dance community to attend a camp where they could learn skills which would benefit the organization. Check with your local dance organization to find out if they offer such support.
