Booking Process

The online booking system is now open. Each pass is available a Follower Pass or a Leader Pass, please select the appropriate one. 

 

For several of the passes you are required to select which of the classes you wish to join, please select one for each time slot, or select 'None' if you are planning a break for a particular time slot.

If you buy a pass that includes the Sunday Workshop, you do not need to select that as an option as there is only one Workshop on Sunday.

We will endeavour to keep the freestyles and the Workshops closely gender balanced, and we ask you to provide the name of the dancer when making a booking, so if you are booking a pass on behalf of someone else please enter their name on the booking.

Although there is potential to change a selected workshop on the day, we would prefer that this does not happen too much as it will lead to un-balanced lead/follow numbers causing more 'wait-time' within class.
