Young Dancers' Workshop & Social Dance

29-30 September 2018, Heidelberg, Germany

The Young Dancers Workshop is a weekend course for young dancers. The workshop is mainly aimed at young adults, but dancers from the full Spring-Fling-Age-Spectrum (12-35) are welcome. It will consist of two courses, one for beginners (taught in German) and a second one for dancers of level intermediate and up (taught in English). These will be taking place in parallel, at the same venue. Please note that older dancers are also welcome to register for the Beginners class, although young dancers will be prioritised.
The weekend is financially supported by an RSCDS Youth Development Grant.

On Saturday evening there will be a Social Dance, open to dancers of all ages, no prior attendance of the workshop required.

The school is generously allowing us to use their rooms for free. However, to cover their expenses, they would kindly ask for a donation on a completely voluntary basis. To facilitate this, we will bring a donation box to the workshop, and we would greatly appreciate it, if you considered donating. Recommended donations are 5€/10€/15€ depending on whether you will be attending the evening dance/the workshop/the workshop and stay at the school, respectively.

Following the last class we invite all participants to join us for a meal, or a beer as a final social outing. Please note that as opposed to the two meals on Saturday, this will not be included in the workshop fee.


For both nights, from Friday to Saturday and Saturday to Sunday, it is possible to stay at the venue (free of charge, optionally for a voluntary donation, see above). Please bring a sleeping bag and a air mattress/camping mat if you opt for this. The school has showers that can be used by workshop participants.
Since the school is in a somewhat remote location, we recommend this option for participants without a car.

A cheapish alternative, for all those who prefer real beds, is the Youth Hostel, where Bed&Breakfast is available for 27,90€/34,40€ per night.
