Do you want to go dancing on New Years Eve? Really dance—not some equivalent to Elaine's limb flail from "Seinfeld." The Ashokan Center in Olivebridge not only offers a space for group dancing, but lessons to learn some new moves for the big night. From December 29 to January 1, Jay Ungar and Molly Mason host world-class musicians and dancers; styles include cajun, zydeco, contra, swing, waltz, and blues. Weekend admission includes all daytime and evening classes, music, food, late night snacks, and bunks, culminating with the New Year's Eve bash and New Year's dinner and dance. With Ashokan's 18th- and 19th-century architecture and quiet tree-wreathed setting, you'll feel worlds away from modern society's critical eye—so, as they say, dance like no one's watching.
