Important things to know
All levels in both music and dance welcome!
This year we are limiting how many of each instrument can be accepted. We are taking 3 of each instrument per week (piano, bass, guitar, banjo, violin, bass, tuba, trumpet, trombone, clarinet, sax), 4 lead vocalists, and only 2 drums/washboard/percussion students per week. Other instruments will also be accepted on a case by case basis (examples; ukuleles, mandolins, accordions, etc)
Week 1's dance program will focus on solo dances such as; tap, solo jazz & blues, chorus girl/guy routines, backing up a featured dancer, costume tips, collaborating with bands for performances, etc. Private lessons can be used for either solo or partner dancing. There will also be partner dancing at night while people jam on the porch.
Week 2's dance program will focus on both solo and partner dances as usual. Tap is only available week 1.
Beginning dancers looking to focus their studies on social swing dancing will be placed in week 2 only. There will not be partner dance classes in week 1.

Welbourne Jazz Camp is a traditional jazz music & dance camp, located one hour from DC in the picturesque Virginia countryside. Participants of all experience levels will spend a week learning from, and jamming with, professional swing dancers and traditional jazz musicians from New Orleans, New York, and beyond.

We welcome aspiring jazz musicians and swing dancers of ANY SKILL LEVEL, from total beginners to truly advanced.
