Both the workshops and Seminar are limited to 24 people and we will strive to role-balance the classes. We expect both the Seminar and Workshops to sell out, so space is only guaranteed by registering online and paying online (first come, first served). If classes are already filled we will add to you a wait list. No refunds once you are registered, though you can transfer your registration to someone else of the same role. The Seminar is geared towards those who have been dancing for 2 years or less (beg/int-Int) and are looking to make their dance more comfortable, musical, and connected. Workshops are geared towards those that have been dancing for more than two years and are looking to refine their dance and push themselves to new heights in their dancing.

Private lessons are available.
