Chocolate Blues Workshop & Dance

HOW TO REGISTER: We often have online registration and payment available. If so you should see a registration button at the bottom of this page. If online registration isn't available (or has closed), you can still join us; just register and pay in person at the door!

For class series, online registration closes the day of the first class, however we can usually still take new students at the second class, in person. Generally we can't accept new students after the second class, as it's too difficult to catch up.
