Workshops Levels


When you register, choose the track that seems the best fit for you. If you would like to take Track A, Track B or the Master Track, you must attend the Saturday morning track placement. Some people may be shuffled between levels during this time.

Track A

You've got a solid grasp on basic 6- and 8-count patterns and are comfortable mixing and matching them while social dancing.

In this track, you will dig deeper into the connection and stretch that makes these moves work and expand your vocabulary.

Track B

You have a full arsenal of moves and you're comfortable and confident using them to create a well-balanced, musical dance with your partner on the social floor.

This track will help you delve into your musicality and get nerdy about communicating with your partner.

Master Track

You're Track B material with a little something extra.

Students chosen during the Saturday morning placement to participate in the Master track will split the day between taking classes with Track B and getting 4 hours of small, focused group classes with our instructor teams.

The Master Track will be capped at 26 people and will be offered at no additional fee!
