Waltz Fest NW 2019 



Below you will find the pre-registered pricing for the SAT & SUN morning & afternoon workshops.  If you pre-register, you can still pay the guaranteed pre-registered price by cash or check at the door on the day of the event, no worries.  If you don't want to pre-register, you are more than welcome to register at the door 15 minutes before class, but you will be charged the "at-the-door" price. 


See CLASSES page for full descriptions
