Workshop and Private Lesson Opportunities

Ever wanted to learn from the best? As part of the National Collegiate DanceSport Championships, we will be offering participants the opportunity to take part in free workshops and deeply discounted private lessons with members of the judging panel. Our adjudicator panel includes multiple national champions (panel.o2cm.com/?event=ncc), so we highly recommend that competitors take advantage of this excellent opportunity.

The workshops and lessons will be offered in four blocks throughout both competition days, midway through each syllabus session. This means that it will be easier for competitors and participants to participate in the workshops and lessons. The workshops will be free, and private lessons will only cost $60 per lesson. As many of our adjudicators can bill at two to three times that amount, this is an exciting and rare opportunity. On Saturday March 24th at 2PM Central, we will be putting a google form on our website to sign up for the private lesson opportunities. The link will appear below. Lessons will be allocated on a first-come, first-serve basis, and payment will be required upon arrival at the event. We will contact participants individually to confirm their lessons. If demand greatly exceeds supply, we will do our best to create additional times for competitors to get their lessons in.

Additional Lesson Information:

  • When you sign up for lessons, you will have the opportunity to list yourself for multiple lessons. Only the first lesson will be allocated on the first-come, first-serve basis. The additional lessons will be allocated (if available) after a sufficient amount of time has occured to let others have the opportunity to learn. Knowing your interest will also help us determine demand, which will in turn determine if additional lessons become available.
  • Several of our judges (Dan Calloway, Ronen Zinshtein, Viktoriya Drubetskaya) will be judging the USA Dance National DanceSport Championships one week later. To keep things fair for all competitors at that event, private lessons for those judges will be available only to those competitors who are not doing both events. We're sorry for the inconvenience, but we hope you understand the need to keep things fair.
