Workshops

We offer multi-levelled workshops throughout the weekend. Each level gets 5hours of workshop plus additional open level workshops. 

PLEASE NOTE: We do not allow participants to jump between leveled workshops, this means if you are level 3 you cannot attend level 1-2, 4 or 5 workshops. This is due to balance of the workshops, space limitations and most importantly respect of the levels.

Please read the level descriptions carefully before choosing the appropriate group for you. We will scan all registration to check WSDC levels.

If you want more workshops you can attend our SNOW Extreme which gives you 4 more workshops! Click on Extreme in the top menu to read more.

Audition

The audition is for those who would like to attend classes of higher levels, but do not have the required WSDC points to qualify. If you would like to audition to a higher level of classes you will have to go to the audition, check the schedule to see when and where, and dance your way to the desired level. You will get a few songs and you will rotate partners to get a chance to show your skills. The pro’s will decide who gets to move up.
