Over 150 Workshops

This year Independence Day Ball dance camp will feature over 150 workshops from World-Class instructors. Four workshops will be taught concurrently every hour; two Latin (Cha-Cha, Rumba, Samba, Jive, Paso Doble) and two Standard (Waltz, Tango, Foxtrot, Quickstep and Viennese Waltz). These workshops will focus mainly on technique. There will also be a performance class focusing on figures and presentation and this year, we will expand our separate advanced track for open and professional level dancers.

Social Activities

In addition to the workshops, we host nightly social events: trip to downtown Washington to see the Fireworks on the National Mall near the White House, Capitol and Washington Monument, Friday Night Social Dance, and, finally, "Pizza with the Pros" - a Q&A session with our panel of instructors that always ends in laughter and one-of-a-kind demonstrations.
