Dance Brigade has launched a summer retreat, workshop, and performance center. Located between the towns of Covelo and Laytonville in Mendocino County, our ranch in Dos Rios is nestled in the enchanted hills of Northern California. The Eel River weaves through the property, which is filled with old oak trees and lush gardens. This space offers a peaceful place to relax, while simultaneously providing a fertile ground to create, study, and lay the foundation for future projects. Nature inspires!
The land includes: an open air barn for dancing and drumming, a house for cooking and bathing, a yurt for yoga, access to the river, indoor sleeping areas and plenty of camping ground.
For the past 15 years, the retreat center has hosted the Grrrl Brigade youth summer dance camps, various residencies, workshops, and dance camps for adults, as well as private events, such as weddings. Dos Rios programming also includes Summer Feast, a site-specific performance that is held throughout the property.
Dos Rios Programs
Our Dos Rios programming includes summers full of Grrrl Brigade youth dance camps, Modern and Cuban dance programs for adults, yoga and meditation retreats, flow arts intensives, Taiko drumming camps, artist residencies, and Summer Feast, an afternoon of site-specific performance.
