Help protect our Floor. Clean, soft-soled, non-marking shoes make for better dancing and happier facility directors who will invite us back again next year!! We’ll provide gaffers’ tape (free), dance socks and footies (for purchase).

Reduce your carbon footprint! Consider bringing your own hot coffee mug and/or closed water bottle to use throughout the weekend. We will have non-spill bottles for sale at the dance for use in the gym.

This is a fragrance free event Please avoid wearing strong fragrances, including cologne, lotions, after-shave and other products. Many of our dancers have allergies and sensitivities to these hidden chemicals. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
