Date & Venue:
Wintergreen is the weekend of January 29-31, 2016. All dances and workshops will be held at the elegant Emerson Center for the Arts and Culture at 111 South Grand Avenue. Within walking distance of historic downtown Bozeman, Montana, the Emerson features a spacious ballroom with a beautiful wood dance floor.
In an effort to keep Wintergreen affordable and fun, we are offering a special early-bird discount this year (even lower than the normal early registration rate). We can't make our budget at this price unless a bunch of folks sign up, so invite a friend and help make this the best Wintergreen ever!

Note about FRAGRANCES (or lack thereof):
Many members of the dance community have sensitivities or allergies to fragrances. Even for those that don't, the smell of perfumes can become unpleasantly powerful when dancing indoors with many people. Think of this as a sport. For the comfort and health of everyone, PLEASE DO NOT WEAR FRAGRANCES to Wintergreen. This includes perfume, aftershave, scented deodorant, hair and skin care products, and fabric softener. Fragrance-free soap will be provided in the restrooms.
