Instructor Workshop October 3-5, 2014

This Fall workshop will be open to all instructors of Dance Trance Fitness. If you are thinking about opening a Dance Trance program, just contact us for information on how you can attend to get more information on what DT is all about!

Attendees:  This workshop format is a little different and includes our biggest choreography class session on Sunday. Make plans to be in Jacksonville all day Sunday if you want to see all the choreography and attend important break out sessions. This is a three day event so in order to get the most out of your trip, plan to be in Jacksonville from Oct 3 12 noon – Oct 5th 8 PM. Hotel accommodations and transportation are up to the attendee. You will need a rental car to transport between locations.

Our studios are in two different locations. San Marco is close to downtown Jacksonville & our Beach studio is about 20 mins away on the beach (Neptune Beach) which is about 5 miles from Jacksonville Beach. We suggest staying close to either or in-between on State Rd 202 (JTB Hwy) which runs between the two locations (this is probably the cheapest option).
