Mieks Gersten first came to Brant Lake during the summer of 1983, when she actually worked at our sister camp, Point O’Pines. The next summer however she began as a Director of Brant Lake Dance Camp, a position that she still holds forty years later. With her background as a performing arts major at NYU and unending positive energy, Mieks and the Dance Camp were a perfect fit. Mieks and Richie G have been happily married for almost forty years. After raising their two children in Armonk, NY, they now spend their off-season between Brant Lake and New York City.
