About Dance at Interlochen Arts Camp
Interlochen is located in northern Michigan. Our scenic, lakefront campus has inspired generations of artists in dance, music, theatre, film, visual arts, and creative writing. Our historic dance studio is located on the shores of Green Lake and offers stunning vistas of the beach to dancers at the barre. A comprehensive renovation and 25,000 square-foot expansion broke ground in fall 2019 and is expected to open in spring 2021. Our dance summer programs draw on the creative vitality that exists at Interlochen, with live musicians featured in each class. You will have the opportunity to take in dozens of performances and exhibitions, as you learn and live with fellow student artists from all over the world.
