NOTE: In the registration process, there is a question that asks if you want housing with local dancers. If you've already arranged to stay with local dancers, please do not check this box. This is only for dancers who need for us to arrange housing for you. You will receive your housing assignment on Friday evening at the dance.
This dance is NOT gender-balanced. All our dancing deities are fabulous partners!
Everyone wants to be in Florida in February! So plan to stay awhile. North Central Florida has some of the most beautiful springs in the world. Come kayak, snorkel or dive in crystal clear 72 degree water. Birding is amazing on Paynes Prairie (not to mention GATORS!). There are several lovely parks for camping, hiking and napping. Orlando is only two hours south - home of Disney World and Universal Studios among many, many other tourist attractions.
REFUND POLICY: If, Zeus forbid, you should have to cancel your registration, you will be refunded the full amount of your registration minus $10 until Feb 1. After Feb 1, you will be refunded half of your registration. Refunds will not be given after February 15, unless there are people on the waiting list to take your place. If there is a waiting list, you will be refunded half of your registration.
