The cost is $10 per workshop, but since the workshops are progressive, we recommend you attend both. Total cost is $20, which includes the social dance. The first workshop is at 6:30PM followed by the second workshop at 7:15PM. Open social dancing starts at 8:00PM. If you only want to show up for social dancing, the cost is $5.
