We want as many dancers as possible to be able to attend classes at The Blues Garden, no matter their financial situation. Therefore, if your economy is strained you can choose to pay 300 SEK less than the regular registration fee.
Should you feel economically comfortable, you can choose to pay 100 or 300 SEK extra. This will help a fellow dancer who would otherwise not be able to attend the event.
The Blues Garden does not offer classes at beginner level. To attend classes, you need to be a trained blues dancer. Our format doesn’t work for beginner blues dancers, unfortunately. The Blues Garden workshop participants are good dancers that attend classes and social dance regularly. We will not hold auditions, nor test your skills or your knowledge, it is up to you. Will you feel comfortable taking classes with people of mixed and diverse skill levels and will they feel comfortable in class with you?
We believe in encouraging dancers to try out both dance roles. Therefore you will be asked in every class whether you want to follow or lead during that particular hour. But to ensure a good lead/follow balance during the evening parties, we will ask during registration whether you intend to mostly lead, mostly follow or dance both roles equally when you social dance.
We will admit participants in the order we received their registration, while ensuring a good lead-follow balance on the social dance floor.
We do not have special rules to admit couples or other kinds of groups. If you want to attend The Blues Garden together with a partner, make sure to register early to maximize your chance of getting into the workshop together.
If it is important for you to take classes together with your partner (or someone else), please tell us when you register. We will try to arrange this, but it might come at the expense of not getting your first path choice.
