The 2021-2022 competition season is underway! Preliminaries and BIG CASH PRIZES are back this year. We’ll have a short preliminary season with training in September and October for the competition October 30. Workshops are October 16 and 23. Additional private classes will start September 22 (Cori) and 24 (Colette) at the Evergreen Ballroom. Contact Tina for options in Rogue River/Grants Pass.

For the preliminaries, couples ages 8-25 will compete for cash in heats divided by age and level. Intermediate Teens and Young Adults will compete for private lesson scholarships to learn the solo dance of their choice for the finals January 29.

Students are welcome to attend classes and workshops even if they’re not sure they want to compete.

State COVID mandates will be followed. Thank you for your understanding and support.
