We are offering dance every week at Augusta this year! Workshops vary from mini-courses to full day workshops, from absolute beginner to experienced, and from Cajun two-step to cakewalks and cyphers. Every musical style represented at Augusta has a vernacular dance form connected to it, and we want to explore the history and traditions of those styles. Each dance workshop runs concurrently with the music themes listed below, plus arts, crafts, and folklore workshops and evening mini-courses. Evening activities include legendary late-night jams, concerts, dances, and more. Youth, as well as adults, are welcome to participate.

Coming soon a greeting from – Becky Hill, Augusta Events Coordinator  and Dance Coordinator

Tuition Guide:
$490/week if paid before June 1. $
530/week if paid after June 1. 

(+ Room & Board or other available options.)

Registration will open on March 1, 2018.

Junious “House” Brickhouse

Junious “House” Brickhouse is an internationally established educator, choreographer, and cultural preservationist with over 30 years of experience in urban dance culture. At age 18, he embarked on an over 20-year career as a Logistics Professional in the US Army and later as a Department of Defense contractor. Throughout this time in various international assignments, Junious developed both a military and dance career, eventually rising to positions of leadership and responsibility in both areas. The logistics skills and leadership acumen Junious honed in his military work provide a solid and unique foundation as a leader and facilitator in the dance world. As Founder and Executive Director of Urban Artistry, Inc. (www.urbanartistry.org), Junious has inspired and created a movement of artists dedicated to the authentic preservation of urban dance culture, specifically within communities of practice. While constantly engaged in research about urban dance culture and the communities from which it evolved, Junious created projects such as The Preservatory and the UA Digital Archives to encourage other artists to research and document these tradition bearers and their stories.
