Why Perry-Mansfield?

IMAGINATION, SPIRIT,  AND PERFORMANCE

In 1914, two ladies came to the frontier mountain town of Steamboat Springs, Colorado with a mule named “Tango.” Although the town was populated with people primarily engaged in mining and ranching, it was Charlotte Perry and Portia Mansfield’s vision to explore and teach “natural dance forms” and artistic expression “close to creatures and mountains and out-of-doors.”

Quickly regarded by the locals as the “mad ladies of Steamboat,” Charlotte and Portia founded Perry-Mansfield Performing Arts School and Camp in this spectacular mountain setting – a 76-acre campus 7,000 feet above sea level and 150 miles northwest of Denver.

Today Perry-Mansfield is the oldest continuously operating performing arts camp in the country that attracts 250 students (ages 8 to 21) from across the country and showcases twenty performances each summer. With the nation’s best faculty, staff and students, Perry-Mansfield is the place where innovation and imagination are expressed in theatre, dance, musical theatre, and creative writing.
