Earthdance is an artist-run workshop, residency, and retreat center located in the Berkshire hills of Western Massachusetts.  We provide a dynamic mix of dance, somatic, and interdisciplinary arts training, with a focus on sustainable living, social justice, and community.  Earthdance has been spearheading innovative arts programming and maintaining a beautiful facility for rental groups in the Pioneer Valley for three decades.

A Weekend Workshop with Daniel Lepkoff

In this work, the form and composition of our ongoing interactions with our environment are considered as "danced composition." The work can be applied directly to performance and is open to anyone who is interested in movement as a language for communication. This workshop offers practical tools for researching our functional movement and reflexes.

Help us Meet our Match on #GivingTuesday!

Earthdance is proud to announce that we have been awarded a matching grant of $77,000 from the Massachusetts Cultural Council's Cultural Facilities Fund (CFF)!

This is an incredible honor and a chance to revitalize Earthdance’s Farmhouse.

But we have to raise an equal amount from our community in order to receive the Grant.
We have $31,000 left to go. We will only receive the Grant if we raise the matching funds.

Donate now to make the first phase of our Facilities Master Plan a reality!
