Join author Dagny McKinley as we celebrate her book Perry-Mansfield Performing Arts School & Camp: A History of Art in Nature. In 1914, Charlotte Perry and Portia Mansfield envisioned a secluded institution nestled in the mountains, where art and nature could intersect. By the 1920s, their remote school & camp in Steamboat Springs was serving as a hub for top dancers of the time. In addition to training thousands of dancers, the school showcased equestrian jumping and performed plays by the masters. The theater program eventually attracted many of today’s leading actors and actresses. Author Dagny McKinley presents the story of America’s longest continuously running performing arts camp
