Workshops Overview:  

Take your dance skills and knowledge to the next level! At the Country Dance World Championships, we’re not only concerned with producing a great competition event, we’re also doing our best to bring you the most comprehensive dance workshop program of the year. So whether you’re a complete beginner or seasoned veteran, a country dancer, swing dancer or line dancer, we’ll have a full menu of dance workshops just for you.

Our spacious facilities and large professional teaching staff allow us to offer numerous workshops at once. Workshops will begin in the afternoon on Monday, December 29, 2014. We’ll add more workshop opportunities the following day, and we’ll build throughout the week until we’re offering up to five workshops at a time. We’ll wrap it up on Sunday January 4th with another half day of workshop opportunities before we have to begin vacating our space. We’re planning over 100 workshops at Worlds 2015!
