Round Dance Program

We are proud to announce that we have programmed many round dance leaders for your dancing pleasure, including several who are nationally and/or state acclaimed cuers/instructors.

The round dance program will be packed with learning and dancing opportunities throughout Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Dancing will be Phases II through VI. Rhythm clinics will occur each morning. Dances being taught each afternoon will be showcased in the morning. Don't miss the showcases. They are wonderful to watch each day, even if you don't round dance!
