Workshops

Workshops at Inspiration Weekend are geared toward four topics of focus: social dancing, performance and competitive dancing, how to teach Swing dancing in an engaging and effective manner, and Jazz music and theory.

Pick the area of interest that suits you. You can even dabble in the other tracks if you like and if classroom size allows.

Social Dancer’s Track

This track is for people who already go social dancing but would like to improve their connection, playfulness, and vocabulary. This track is friendly to dancers that are beginner level or above.

Competition & Show Track

This track is for people who regularly perform or compete at Lindy Hop contests, or for higher level social dancers that would like to start performing and competing right away. Beginners should not register for this workshop track. If you are not interested in competing this weekend you should take the social dancer’s track instead.

Invitational Track

This year at IW we’re trying something new, an invitational track for higher level education and alternative learning methods. Our hope is to inspire you to continue your education through new ideas, learning methods and community collaboration. This is an invite only class. Invites will be determined by the Inspiration Weekend organizers.

Space is limited for this class so once it sells out there will be a waiting list.

To submit a request for an invitation to join this request, please complete an invitational track request.
