BACDS Code of Conduct

BACDS Dance Series

Here are selected series' schedules.

BACDS Summer Camps

BACDS conducts three week-long dance & music camps in the summer: Family Week, American Dance & Music Week, and Hey Days English Dance & Music Week. Each offers a unique experience for dancer, musician, camper, or just plain vacationer. There's no better way to learn new and improve existing skills or to meet new friends than by immersion.
