Updated March 21, 2019.  Schedule subject to change.

The 2019 Emerald City Hoedown will feature over 40 hours of workshops, featuring guest instructors from all over North America as well as our regular Rain Country Dance Association instructors and favorites from the Northwest.

For the 2019 Emerald City Hoedown, we will have four full tracks of workshops on Friday and Saturday, and three on Sunday in ballrooms and meeting rooms on three floors of the hotel — Country Couples, Swing, Line Dance, and Taste & Technique.  The dance competition will now occur at the start of the evening on Friday and Saturday, with practices occurring in the break between workshops and competitions.  And since we encourage you to stay for all day Sunday, including the evening dance, there will be three tracks of workshops on Sunday afternoon, a mix of County Couples, Swing, and Line Dance.  As you can see, you will definitely want to stay through to Monday if you can!
