IMPORTANT: The event runs Friday night (welcome dance), Saturday afternoon (usually two consecutive workshops, with one being a challenging workshop for experienced dancers and another being a review session for all for the evening gala), and Saturday evening (dress-up gala). You can register for the full weekend OR choose by individual session(s). Currently (as of June 2024) there are no planned activities on Sunday. Home hospitality is NOT available, so be sure to first research the cost of hotel and airbnb/vrbo lodgings; special ATL rates/discounts will be available for several hotels. Additionally, our Clothing Sale/Boutique will likely happen. Also, we *may* ask you to bring goodies (ready-to-serve finger foods) for the evening refreshments.

IMPORTANT FOR CANADIANS: In 2025, we plan to continue with this policy — Canadians can either pay the same numeric amount as other attendees but in Canadian dollars at the door, OR pay in US dollars with a 25% discount to the amount shown in US cash or US funds check.
