The discount will not show up until you go to the checkout. The subtotal will show the price before the discount, then the grand total will show the price with the discount.

Do I buy tickets for Beginner, Intermediate or Advanced?

The levels are a guide and the groups will still be mixed. The teachers make sure that the stronger dancers in each group are stretched but will also break down choreography / technique for less experienced dancers in the group. More information below for each type of workshop.

Beginner-Intermediate- For those with less dance experience or for those who go to recreational dance clubs but don’t do competitions, higher level grades etc

Intermediate-Advanced- For dancers who dance several times a week and/or dancers who compete/perform and are grade 5 and above.

3 Day Intensive

Intermediate- For those who dance regularly and are used to picking up choreography but may feel they need to work more on their acro and technique

Advanced- For those who are of a high standard in most or all disciplines featured in the workshop. The advanced group would typically be dancing several times a week at a high level. Must have some acro or gymnastic experience.
