    Full weekend passes are sold out, is there a waitlist?
    Whoa! Registration isn't even open yet, but we did sell out quickly last year. If full weekend passes are sold out, a waitlist will be available.

    Can I get a t-shirt / tote bag / hoodie / other merchandise?
    You bet! We will have merchandise available for pre-sale when registration opens. We will not have merchandise available for sale at the event, so all merchandise orders should be made in advance.

    When does registration close?
    September 20, 2019 will be the last day to purchase, transfer, refund, or defer a pass. No exceptions will be made.

    Where will I check in?
    You can check in at the dance on Friday night or before classes on Saturday morning.

    Do I have to wear this wristband all weekend?
    Yep! Don't take off your wristband unless you don't want to come to any more dances or classes.

    Who qualifies for the student pricing?
    Any college or high school student with a valid school email address. The school email address will be required at checkout when you purchase a pass.

  • Transfers, Deferrals, and Refunds

    What is the pass refund policy?
    If you can't attend and we are notified by July 31, 2019, a full refund will be issued. Any refund requests submitted from August 1-September 20, 2019 will be issued minus a 30% cancellation fee. Refunds will not be offered after September 20, 2019. Contact us to request a refund.

    How do I transfer my pass to another dancer?
    Contact us to set up your transfer. We need the full name, email address, and phone number of the person you're transferring your pass to. We will not make the money exchange for you, that'll have to be between you both. Transferred passes are like for like, e.g. a follow pass cannot be transferred to a lead unless we have a circumstance of being short one or the other. Passes cannot be transferred after September 20, 2019.

    How do I defer my pass to 2020?
    Contact us to request a pass deferral.

  • Classes

    What level am I?
    Check out our tracks and levels page for information on the levels. We've got comparisons to levels at Big City Swing for local dancers.

    Do I need to audition?
    If you are planning to take classes in the two upper levels, auditions will be required. They will take place on Saturday morning at 10am, before the tracked classes begin. Please do not be late for auditions. You will receive your wristband at the end of auditions.

    Do I need to pick my electives in advance?
    Nope! Show up to the elective you want to take, but get there early, they'll be first come first served based on room capacity!

  • Dances

    We may have some tickets available for sale at the door, but we can't guarantee it. The only way to guarantee entry into the dances is with a pass. Dance only passes are available, and workshop passes include entry to all the dances.

    Yes, please! Once registration is open, you will be able to volunteer space in your home for our out-of-town friends to stay with you.

    Is housing guaranteed?
    Unfortunately not, it is dependent on the number of spaces available locally, but we will try our best!

    As we get closer to the event, a survey will go out for volunteers. You will have chance to give us your volunteering preferences (shifts, types of work, etc.) at that time and we will do placements accordingly to accommodate as many people as we can.
