Enchanted Ridge Dance Retreat

The mission of Enchanted Ridge Dance Retreat, founded in 1998 by director Jessica Adams, is to bring dancers and nature together. Adams is honored to continue the journey of co-teaching this magical retreat with Dana Lawton and have Bay Area’s acclaimed musician, Daniel Berkman accompany all dance classes.

Enchanted Ridge is located in the mountains outside Chico, California. The large home on 27 acres of land nestled in the evergreens of Cohasset are surrounded by lush gardens, a crystal-clear pond, sauna, a dance studio, and much more. It is an inspiring location, perfect for dancers who want to get out of the city and into a creative, relaxed environment. Experience the mountains enjoying fresh air and the beauty of nature.

This retreat promises to be an extraordinary five day journey. Relax into nature, strengthen your modern dance technique, experience somatic arts (Pilates, yoga, Yamuna Body Rolling) and delve deeply into your own choreographic process. After a day of dancing, choose to get a massage, sooth your muscles in the wood burning sauna, swim in the refreshing pond or simply enjoy the glow of the bonfire. Delicious organic catered dinners allow time to socialize, relax and foster a deeper sense of community.
