Soul Arts Academy has made the difficult decision to cancel our in-person Catskills Summer Retreat and our NYC Immersion 2021. We are excited for our in-studio re-launch in September 2021!
The Immersion: A Soul Arts Summer Retreat is an interdisciplinary arts program, with a focus on dance – set in the scenic Catskills Mountains in upstate New York.
Our program is comprised of rotating technique classes in ballet, contemporary, Broadway dance, hip hop, vocal studies, spoken word and yoga for dancers. Course load is intertwined with nature excursions, outdoor pool time, spring-side recreation, foraging and farm to table cooking and more…
More than a rigorous arts education program, The Immersion is a mind-body-soul connected arts experience that guides each developing artist to their core energy and beauty. Our programming will be set in spaces for rejuvenation, exploration, connection and growth, so that our students can gain new perspective and inspiration. We expect a lot from our students and this program will allow them an opportunity to prosper to the best of their abilities – in a relaxed, healthy and nature-immersed setting – often farther than they thought possible!

Location, Facilities & Food
Studios and retreat lodging are both at the gorgeous Streamside and Willow Drey facilities in the quaint town of Andes, a picturesque village nestled in western Catskills, just 3 hours from the GW Bridge.
The program’s home is at Streamside Arts Retreat with well-equipped studios with an 18′ x 30′ deck overlooking a sylvan stream in the mountain village of Andes, New York. The facilities include two beautifully appointed apartments, with a total of 15 modern, immaculate and stunning bedrooms and a screened-in porch overlooking a fire pit and the Tremperskill Stream. It’s a spiritual place of relaxation, deep connection and renewal.
Farm To Table Food
Studies show the effect of antioxidants from organic foods on overall health, due to the fact that foreign chemicals are not negatively interacting with the different vitamins and minerals.
At Soul Arts we choose organic to make sure that your children, our students, grow up healthy and unaffected by the toxins of the world, especially in their important developmental years. To ensure the highest quality, freshest and most nutritious local farmfresh food we have partnered with Nicole Day of Catskills Regional Harvest, who will provide our farm to table catering.
