The Frost Place

Poets from near and far came to The White Mountain School’s campus to be inspired by the beauty of their surroundings, to enjoy the wonderful weather and to write poetry. The Frost Place is an educational center and non-profit located in Franconia, New Hampshire at the former home of esteemed poet, Robert Frost. Every year, the Frost Place holds a Conference on Poetry, where writers from around the world come to White Mountain’s campus to work with renowned faculty and poets like Blas Falconer, Elizabeth Powell and Yona Harvey. Poets spent most days in intensive workshops, classes and lectures. Read more about the conference here!

Eat, Sleep, Dance, Repeat 

Summer at the Creative Edge Dance Studio (CEDS) is packed with three camps, one residential summer intensive and two day camps. Housed on the lower floor of the Catherine Houghton Arts Center, participants make use of the two full-sized dance studios by taking classes in Modern, Hip Hop, Contemporary, Tap and others. The residential summer intensive Eat, Sleep, Dance, Repeat featured guest artists like Pamela Donohoo, Anthony Lo Cascio and Brea Purdue. An Empowerment through Dance workshop kicked off the camp and was led by Plymouth State faculty Dave Lynch.

A few White Mountain students had the chance to attend or help out with the camps. Sophomore Sofia Mangold danced in the residential camp, while Tori Breen ’17 coached and taught classes in the Summer Sampler Day Camp. Tori will be attending University of Minnesota in the fall to study dance. View pictures from a few of the classes below, and be sure to check the CEDS website for more information.
