For more than 50 years. Windhover has served the community as a place to learn, perform, and share the beauty of dance and the related arts in a natural setting. In 1967, modern dancer Ina Hahn and her husband Herb Hahn purchased the last farm in Pigeon Cove, a small village near Rockport, Massachusetts, and created Windhover. In less than a year, Herb Hahn converted the farm’s barn into a dance studio, the stable into a library, out-buildings into dormitories and the main house into a dining-kitchen complex. In 1968, Windhover opened as a performing arts camp for girls, drawing students from the US, Canada, and Mexico. New buildings included a chapel/theater, a second dance studio, and an outdoor stage. In 1983 Windhover became a 501(c) (3) non-profit foundation that offers dance classes, teen dance intensives, residencies and performances in all of the performing arts to the Cape Ann Community and beyond. In 2016, Lisa Hahn became Executive Director of Windhover and is ushering in a new era with more performances, classes and retreats than ever before, Windhover is reaching out to collaborate with other groups, hold spiritual retreats and meditative events, and host conversations of topics of interest to the community.
