We will have four workshop rooms for much of the weekend!   The Madison Ballroom on the 2nd floor will be used primarily for country couples workshops (two-step, waltz, etc.)   The Courtyard Ballroom on the hotel's lower floor will be used primatily for swing workshops (West Coast and East Coast).   The third floor will house two workshop rooms, one for line dances and one for smaller couples workshops and technique workshops.

A third room on the third floor will be for the IAGLCDWC delegates meeting and non-dancing forums and workshops.

The Courtyard Ballroom will be used only for the burnch and IAGLCWDC general membership meeting on Sunday, so some adjustment of workshop room assignments will occur then.

Evening Dances


The Madison Ballroom and the Line Dance room will be open for our Trail-In Dance.   There is a stairwell connecting the foyers on the two floors for easy access between them.   Some line dancing will also occur in the main ballroom, primarily popular floor-fillers.

Friday & Saturday

Friday and Saturday nights, Madison Ballroom on the 2nd floor is where you will find all your favorite country couples dances: Two-Steps, plus Waltz, West Coast Swing, faster East Coast Swing, Shadow, Night Club, and maybe a Shuffle.  We will also have a smattering of the most popular line dances (just a few per hour; hit the Line Dance room for both your favorites and new challenges).  The Just Dance competition and any performances will also be held in the Madison Ballroom.

For Swing and Line dancing, one will be in the Courtyard Ballroom on the hotel's lower level, and the other in the larger room up on the 3rd floor, just a couple flights of stairs away.   We will probably flip those rooms on Saturday night so that both groups get the big ballroom; check the posted schedule at the event for full details.


Sunday night will have the Madison Ballroom for country coules dancing, and the two dance rooms on the third floor for Line and Swing.

Line Dance Room

The main ballroom will have some line dances played each night, primarily the most popular floor-fillers or dances that can do double duty as a good couples dance as well.  (Line dancers in the middle of the floor, please.)

For the hot new dances from the hoedown, or your favorite dances from the Rain Country repertoire or you own club, hit the dedicated Line Dance room.   Please ask our DJ for your favorite line dance — if we aren’t already familiar with it, we need the name of the dance, the name of the song, and the name of the artist in order to be sure we have the right music.

For those of you who want to pop between the Country Couples and Line Dance rooms, we will have computer displays showing what line dances have been played and are coming up next, so you can be there in time for your favorite.  You can also watch the line up on your smart phone.

 These were the dance rooms used in 2018.  We will get the full set of 2019 room up soon.Floor Plan
