Class Schedule

All classes are included in the full weekend pass available here. You will be sent a registration for once you’ve purchased your pass.

If you’d like to sign up for individual classes they will be $20 at the door, cash only.

No partner is needed to take any of the classes. In all partner dance classes, teachers rotate partners so that everyone gets a chance to dance with everyone.

Classes are all held at Ace Hotel New Orleans (600 Carondolet) in Barnett Hall.
