Updated July 8, 2020.  Schedule subject to change.

The 2021 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.  We will have three tracks of workshops on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday in ballrooms and meeting rooms on two floors of the hotel — both Country Couples (two rooms, for different sized workshops) and Line Dance.

Workshop Levels
Couples & Swing Basic Basic+ Low Intermediate Intermediate Intermediate+ or Advanced
All Levels None Yet
  What do these levels mean for Couples and Swing dancing?  They will be different for each instructor and each dancer, but consider Basic and Basic+ to focus on learning the dance, everything from an intro to the dance thorugh all of its usual moves, patterns and concepts.  The Intermediate levels take that to the next (ahem) level — harder moves, new combinations, more advanced concepts, all the way to some of the fanciest moves you can reasonably expect to do on a busy hoedown dance floor.
