Welbourne Traditional Jazz Music & Dance Camp
August 5th-12th 2013
August 15th-22nd 2013
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 musicians and dancers of ANY SKILL LEVEL, from total beginners to truly advanced.
IMPORTANT: You DO NOT have to take music lessons to attend this camp. And you DO NOT have to take dance lessons. But, you CAN take both if you want. You also do not have to be a pro at your instrument. We have lots of beginners as well as super advanced and everything in between.
We have four programs available -
Dance Only (Swing, Jazz, Tap,)
Music Only (Most Instruments & Voice)
Combined Music & Dance
Jazz Vacation Program (for those who don't want to take class but still want to enjoy the Welbourne Jazz Camp experience).

Because we can only accept 30 people per week, we are able to give our campers a truly personalized experience (that includes FREE PRIVATE LESSONS!). Although an application process is required, don't let it scare you. Its is merely a formality in order to help us plan classes specifically for the needs of those coming, balance classes with instrumentation and leaders & followers, and helps us select roommates for those attending.
NEW FOR 2013!
We are super excited to announce that we have expanded to two separate weeks! If you are open to attending either week, it will increase your chances of getting accepted. But don't be afraid to tell us if one week is better than another.
Check out our 4 NEW staff teachers;
Nathan Bugh - New York City - Swing Dance, Jazz, Tap
Meschiya Lake - New Orleans - Vocals
Russell Welch - New Orleans - Rhythm Guitar, Gypsy Jazz Guitar
Aurora Nealand - New Orleans - Clarinet, Soprano Sax, Alto Sax, Tenor Sax, Flute, Accordion, Vocals
Looking forward to having you at the Jazz Farm!
