Introducing Academies, a new revolutionary learning concept

All workshops will be organized in blocks of progressive workshops of 4 hours dedicated to a dance style or theme, for example Salsa on2, or Kizomba. Those blocks we call „Academies“. On Friday we will have 5 Academies parallel, on Saturday 8 Academies and on Sunday 7 Academies. 

We will ask you to make a choice and sign in

After you registered we will ask you to sign in for the Academies you have purchased using the "Sched" application. Signing in for an Academy is not a final decision, you will still be able to swap between Academies, even on the spot, though we do not encourage you to do so, as they are progressive units of learning. 

Academies marked "FULL! Do NOT sign in any more!"
Those Academies are REALLY FULL and that won’t change as they are in the smaller rooms so that the capacity can not be extended. Take this for serious, and do NOT sign in any more. You won’t get off the waiting list. And you won’t get in either on the spot. Use the time now and sign in for another Academy which is not marked FULL.

Academies marked "Filling"
Each Academy has set limited of attendees. Once we reached 70% of that threshold the Academy is marked "Filling". You can sign up for those Academies.

Academies marked "Full"
Once reached the threshold it is marked "Full". You can still sign up but you will be set on the waiting list. We monitor the number of attendees for each Academy including the waiting list and if needed we will change the rooms so you have good chances even if set on the waiting list. That is different to the Academies described before with "FULL! Do NOT sign in any more!".

Using Sched to connect and coordinate with your friends

Once you created your profile on Sched, we encourage you to set your profile to "public" - this will allow your friends to see for which Academies you have signed up for and you can check if you have choosen the same Academies as your friends. You may also connect your profile with your Facebook profile. When you’ve got your social media channels connected, you’ll see a number highlighting how many friends are also attending your event. Click “Attendees” to see which friends are also attending. Only friends that have also connected their social networks will be indicated with the red marker.

Academy Guide: Taking on the controversy & rivalry between Dominican Bachata and Sensual Bachata this Academy will focus on showing the similarities and differences between the two styles. We will have a look into the musical background and history of Bachata music and give you the nessesary background to make your stand in any controversy. The aim is to show you once more that all styles of a dance are legitimate and ideally you are able to dance them all depending upon your partner you asked to dance.
