Dances of the Ancients
May 26| $5 – $15
During this special event, Native American dance groups will gather at Chimney Rock to dance in the beautiful area adjacent to the Visitor Cabin, surrounded by Ponderosa Pines of the San Juan National Forest. The dancers will perform at 10:00 AM and 1:00 PM, one day only. Many Southwest tribes feel a connection to Chimney Rock, and this event will be both powerful and captivating.
Guests should plan to stand for the performance, or bring their own camp chairs or blankets. Each performance will include the same dancers; duration of the programs may vary depending on the specific dances presented. This program does not take place near the archaeological sites; regularly-scheduled walking tours of the archaeological sites will be available for an additional $5/adult and $2.50/child.
Tickets are $15.00 ($5.00 for children ages 5-12) plus booking fee, and are non-refundable. In the event of cancellation due to inclement weather, rain checks will be available. For details, please call the Visitor Cabin (970-833-5359) 9:00 – 4:00 Mountain Time.
Reservations strongly recommended. Limited space. Walk-ins on a first-come, first-serve basis.
