In the Mood to Dance

During this time of public health concern, we are following the guidelines that we believe to be best practices. We are following the recommendations from Governor Cooper's office as the most credible source guided by expert opinion.

In the coming weeks, we have two (2) special events scheduled for which these guidelines are important. We urge all registrants to monitor our Facebook page for all updates on any changes required by these guidelines. For both events, all attendees are expected to wash their hands with soap and water upon arrival, and are encouraged to repeat the process through the event.

The April 4th event has a hard limit of 30 registrations for sale. With staffing, we expect no more than 35 people involved. This falls well within the Governor's guidelines of 100. There is no social dance associated with the April 4th event because we felt that a social dance with this coach in attendance would be likely to exceed the limit.

The April 11th & 12th event does not currently have a maximum limit on the Intensive or the group classes. If the Governor's guidlelines change or registration begin to approach the current limits, we will impose a maximum then. We have imposed a maximum on the social dance scheduled for April 11th to avoid the current gathering limit. In the event that the gathering limit is reduced below it's current setting, the social dance will be cancelled. In the event of cancellation, all direct purchase ticket transactions will be voided.

Please monitor our Facebook page for any changes.

IMPORTANT ITEMS: (trust us, read the whole thing)

1) Three weeks to pre-register for Intensive #6 with Champion Matt Auclair. (Intensive is Easter weekend, 4/11&12.)

2) Due to public health concerns, we have now put a cap on tickets to the social dance, meeting the guidelines established by Governor Cooper & the NCDHHS. Class sizes are not expect to reach the limits, so we are not capping them at this time.

3) Robert Royston is teaching a 5-hour Intensive on Saturday, April 4th. Space is limited to 30 registrants. Registration is currently invite-only.

4) Royston has been kind enough to offer a a discount to ItMtD students taking Intensive #6 with Matt Auclair. 10 spots are currently available on that event's registration page.

5) Currently, the only way to guarantee a place in Royston's Intensive is to purchase the "Super Combo" on the Intensive #6 registration page.

6) Students are expected to wash their hands upon arrival for all portions of Intensive #6 and for the Royston Intensive.

7) Please send us a PM if you have any questions.

Completely agreed!!!🇺🇸 Do you think you took enough classes? That you don’t need to go to workshops anymore? I have a revelation for you! It will never be enough. If you want to progress : GO TO CLASS, you will always learn something, even if it’s a small detail. Every information is important, even if you have the feeling you already did this workshop before, you can’t remember everything. Each time you will hear the same stuff, you will just understand better and realize that you didn’t understood it totally the first time, even the first 6 times lol. Trust us, it’s NEVER ENOUGH!! That’s why we still go to workshops during events and each time we learn new stuff, or understand some details better... #studentforever #gettoclass #westcoastswing #philandflore #wcsmontreal #noexcuses #champion @robertroyston ...
