We know that many of you are getting used to dancing and learning again so we are going to make these classes FUN and flexible. We will have 5 tracks of classes. There will be various Intermediate to Advanced level tracks classes as well as a lot of solo classes for those who prefer to work on their individual dancing. We will be rotating dancers in class as well the option to stay with one partner if you don't feel comfortable rotating. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE WORKSHOP SCHEDULE IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE. As more people register, we are modifying the schedule to accommodate everyone while keeping the sizes of the class manageable. A final schedule will be posted closer to the event.
