Premium Workshops

Our regular offerings of workshops cover a wide range of topics for all levels to suit all of our attendees, but the classes tend to be quite large. Our Premium Workshops are designed to take you to another level in a more intimate setting: these workshops will be restricted to no more than twelve dancers (typically six leads and six follows).

By popular demand the focus of workshops this year is on West Coast Swing. There will be plenty of offerings of other dance styles with our regular series of workshops, and we will also be offering opportunities for private lessons.

There is a nominal fee of $10 per workshop. You must also be registered for the Stompede weekend, or purchase a workshop day pass on-site.

Please note that for our regular workshops there is no additional fee if you are registered for the Stompede, and no advance reservations are necessary. If you are not registered for the Stompede, day passes are available that cover all of tee regular workshops for that day.


To reserve a premium worskhop:

Log in (or create an account) to the
Sundance Stompede Registration site
,
and choose "Purchase Items A La Carte."

SOLD OUT status is indicated as of 8:00 am Wednesday, October 14
