Instructor Workshop January 27-29, 2017

Our next instructor workshop is scheduled for January 27-29, 2017 in Jacksonville, Florida. This is a 3 day workshop and will start at 4 PM on Friday and end at 4 PM on Sunday.  All sessions will be held at our San Marco studio location. It’s important to see the break down choreography on Friday before class on Saturday. New studios should try to attend the first session on Friday called “Starting your own Dance Trance Program.” Make sure and bring questions you’d like to ask during this break out.

This workshop is choreography intensive and will include over 20 new routines shown by our global choreography team. Friday and Sunday will contain more material than Saturday, so make sure and plan to be there for the full days to benefit. Break out sessions on the Dance Trance program and other important topics are offered throughout the day. Plan your day from the posted agenda and get the most out of your weekend.

Friends and students as well as the general public are invited to attend the public sessions held on Saturday and Sunday.
