Sunday Sept 1st, 2019

Everyone's favorite part: optional Sunday add-on classes!  This year you can choose between an all-levels Collegiate Shag elective with David & Chelsea Lee, or our traditional Balboa Small Groups.

These 4-hour class blocks can be purchased as an addition to your Fri/Sat Mini Weekend Pass or Dance Pass.  The Collegiate Shag elective will be a traditional group class of approximately 35  people.  The Balboa Small Group add-ons are a great opportunity for some hands-on, one-on-one time with each instructor.  Balboa Small Groups will be limited to no more than 10 leads/10 follows per group, so register early, as these will sell out!

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

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

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

4pm - 5pm: Sunday add-on workshops (Dogtown 2nd floor theater space, 1st floor studio)

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 that we had them and c) we are old and tired. The event has been priced accordingly and sleep is good, right? :)
