Sunday Sept 3rd, 2017

Everyone's favorite part of last year: optional Sunday add-on classes!  For the student who wants more class time and/or would prefer a more intimate learning environment, this 4-hour block of classes can be purchased as an addition to your Fri/Sat Mini Weekend Pass.  Small group add-ons are a great opportunity for some hands-on, one-on-one time with each instructor.  Class sizes on Sunday will be limited to no more than 10 leads/10 follows per group, so register early, as these will sell out!

11:30pm: check-in begins (Dogtown 2nd floor lobby)

12pm - 1pm: Sunday add-on workshops (Dogtown 2nd floor theater space)

1:15pm - 2:15pm: Sunday add-on workshops (Dogtown 2nd floor theater space)

2:45pm - 3:45pm: Sunday add-on workshops (Dogtown 2nd floor theater space)

4pm - 5pm: Sunday add-on workshops (Dogtown 2nd floor theater space)

5pm - 7pm: Sunday evening farewell dance (Dogtown 2nd floor theater space)



(And for those who prefer the classic I *Heart* Balboa mini-weekend style, you can spend your Sunday off enjoying all the fun things to do in Richmond and the surrounding area, before coming back for the farewell dance on Sunday evening.)


The more astute among you will have noticed the lack of late nights on this schedule. We've decided to dispense with late nights because a) the venue's zoning requires that all events end at midnight and b) most dancers did not take advantage of the late nights the year we had them. Sleep is good, right?
