10-4:30pm Workskhops and Jammix (practice and informal social dance to end the weekend)

* $26/person. Kick back and relax with our teachers and other dancers between the workshops and the Decades Dance. Registrants will receive an email closer to the weekend to sign up for this optional buffet dinner.
++ "Midlife: the Crisis Musical!" at the Boulder Dinner Theater just up the road from the Avalon. Not an official part of the weekend events, but a fun way to cap off your weekend! Advance tickets a must! Reserve your own with the Dinner Theater the sooner the better, as these productions usually sell out. Joan and several dancers will be there; she has seen the performance in another state, and can vouch for the great humor!

Dance Hall Etiquette

Shoes: Please wear clean, non-marking, soft-sole (leather, not rubber) shoes to protect the wood floor. Recommend low heels or flats for women. You want shoes that will turn easily. Casual, comfortable clothing.

Shirts:As a courtesy to your partners, please bring one or more dry shirts to change into if you perspire profusely.

Prevent allergic reactions: Please leave strong perfumes/after-shaves at home. Sensitive noses will thank you!!
