All licensee members are invited to attend our workshop series. If you are not a license holder, but are interested in obtaining a DT license, please contact us for availability in this workshop. Persons interested in starting up their own Dance Trance program our encouraged to attend, please contact Beth Handline at for details.

Please note that this workshop is choreography intensive and is taught in an advanced format. This is not how we would introduce these routines to our class.
We will go through at least 20 routines at a fast pace during the three day workshop. Break out sessions are scheduled so that you learn some of the important basics of teaching. If you want to the most out of this workshop, plan to attend all sessions. We would like you to know that the fitness portion of this workshop is intense. We dance for four or more hours each day. If you are not use to this type of workout it will be a lot for you. Please just plan to take breaks when needed and don’t be scared to sit out during the class sessions.

New studio discussion and Q&A planned for Friday Sept 27th  3 – 4  PM. If you are a new location or thinking about opening your own location, plan on attending this session to get more questions answered on start-up. Think about your questions, write them down and bring with you. We are here to help you get started!!

 To benefit from all choreography and class sessions, make sure you plan to stay for each day’s complete session.  Workshop begins at 3:00 PM on Friday afternoon and runs through Sunday til 4 pM. Take full advantage of every second, you never know what you might miss! New studios should definitely be at the studio at 3 PM Friday to ask questions about their new program.

Only attending Dance Trance License members receive video of this event.

Hotel Listing:
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).

For discount reservations and info about hotels in the area, please contact our travel agent. We do have group rates for this workshop that may be cheaper than the rates you can get online.
