Dirty Dance Camp FAQs

Q: Is Dirty Dance Camp fully Dirty Dancing themed?

A: I love this theme but like, there isn’t going to be any Swayze impersonators or anything. No costume contests, obvs feel free to celebrate the film in whatever way you want since this camp is more of a love letter to the film.

Q: Do I have to participate in the talent show? Does it have to be dancing? Do I need a partner?

A: All campers should plan on performing, Baby! Don’t be scared, be stoked! It will be a thrill, conjure feelings that may be dusty in your heart and dive into fear lake first. We will all lift you from the water (dirty dancing joke). But yah, it’s part of this experience! And no, the talent does not have to be dance related. The only requirement is that each act consists of at least 2 people. (Sorry no solos this time, we have a lot of people and it’s more fun to collab!) Once you register you’ll receive a link to help you find a partner(s) if you need! Have fun! Get weird! Trust me you’ll be glad you did.

Q: Do I need to have a certain level of dance experience to attend?

A: LITERALLY NOT AT ALL! Just like Angela Trimbur Dance, Dirty Dance Camp is open to all.

Q: Do I need to have taken an Angela Trimbur Dance class in order to register for camp?

A: Nope! 🙂 We can’t wait to meet you.

Q: Is there an age requirement?

A: This is a camp for grown-ups and all campers must be 21 years of age or older, but there is no age cut-off!

Q: Wait where is camp located again?

A: We will be approximately 2.5 hours north of NYC in the gorgeous Catskill Mountains, just like Kellerman’s was in Dirty Dancing! (But we’re not actually going to Kellerman’s, just a similar spot!)

Q: I live nearby and wouldn’t need to bunk at camp. Are there day passes available?

A: No, the only way to participate in camp is to have registered for the full experience.

Q: Will transportation be provided?

A: All campers are responsible for arranging their own transportation to and from camp.

Once you register, you’ll receive a link to a ride board where u can offer a ride or find a ride! We will do our best to help facilitate carpools or ride share from nearby transportation centers. More details on travel options, and a discount to use on a Kyte rental car if needed.

Q: What is included?

A: Your lodging for two nights, all meals, drinks, and activities which includes: movie night, s’mores, leotard decorating (plz bring ur own leo tho!), 2 dance classes taught by Angela, filmed bridge montage choreo, sauna use, talent show, guided hike, high quality photos of memories, official camp shirt and prob more!

Q: What do I need to bring to camp?

A: All campers must bring their own bed linens, pillow, blanket, and towels. Pack clothes for dance class and hiking, and whatever you need for your talent show act! It will be November in the mountains, so please keep that in mind and bring warm clothes. Will also send out an email reminder of all this closer to the time.

Q: Is there anything I’m not allowed to bring to camp?

A: Per Ashokan rules, please note outside food and alcohol is not permitted on the grounds, for many reasons!
