Earthdance is an arts organization and retreat center hosting workshops, artist residencies, and community programming. We are situated on unceded Nipmuc territory, in the hills of Western Massachusetts. Our focus centers is on a dynamic mix of dance, somatic, and interdisciplinary arts training, with conscious awareness towards social justice, sustainable living, and community building. Earthdance has been developing innovative arts programming, while maintaining a beautiful facility for rental groups, for over three decades.
Earthdance began in 1986, when a group of dancers and artists in Boston joined together to cultivate a place for creative expression.
Purchasing 175 acres of land in the glorious Berkshire hills of Western Massachusetts, they planted the seeds of community. Today, Earthdance is an internationally recognized presenter of workshops, contact improvisation jams, performances, and community events, drawing thousands of people to the area each year. People cherish Earthdance as a home, and our volunteer program draws creative individuals from all over the world who are interested in contributing to community, dance, art, and the running of a vibrant nonprofit organization.
