4h intensive workshops on Sundays
Our Bootcamps are 4h intensive classes.
They take place on Sundays from 12:30pm to 4:30pm and change topic every week.
The goal is to learn either the basics of a new dance or to improve a specific aspect of a dance you’re already doing.
Fees are 60$/class online and 70$ at the door. You can get a 20$ discount if you register for 2 Bootcamps at the same time, which means 2 Bootcamps for 100$.
