Preliminary Workshop Schedule
The preliminary version of the Worlds 2013 Workshop Schedule is now available. We may still move a few things around a little bit or change the mix of skill levels before the events starts, but this should be close to the actual schedule. Printed versions of the final schedule will be available at the event.
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 dance competition – We’re 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. Most workshops will take place in the Tennessee Ballroom complex. But in addition, we’ll also have a number of casual workshops in the Presidential Lobby area (aka “the Line Dance Lobby”).
Workshops will begin in the afternoon on December 31, 2012 (New Year’s Eve) to get you warmed up for our New Year’s Eve Party. The following day, Tuesday, January 1st, we’ll begin early at 9:00 am and offer up to five workshops at a time until about 5:00 pm each day for the remainder of the week. We’ll wrap it up on Sunday morning January 6th with a few more workshop opportunities before we have to clear out. All in all, we’re planning over 120 workshops at Worlds 2013!
