For the very first workshop you do please come extra early so you get your wrist band as there is normally a line up. You can see what time doors open on the timetable page >
. If you have full pass, make sure you turn up to the venue at least 5-15mins early so you can guarantee priority entry to any workshop. So in other words turn up early if you have a Full pass, so you can make sure you gain entry to a workshop because your slot might be given to someone else who doesn't have a Full pass. You could be turned away if you are late to any workshop with no refund due to maximum capacity.

• Casual Workshop Entry Info

If you don't have a full pass, you may not be able to gain access to all workshops, however, If there is space 5mins before class starts, spaces will be given to any casual entry dancers that can pay cash on the day if there is space ....see pricing info >

• Party Entry Info
