FAQ

WHAT ARE THE LEVELS? IS THERE AN AUDITION?

There are three track levels at Kind of a Big Deal Weekend:
Advanced Beginner/Intermediate - Intermediate/Int-Advanced - Advanced/Advanced Plus

Check the guidelines on the registration form to see which level is right for you!

Anyone who would like to try out for the Advanced level will need to audition Saturday morning. This is a class style audition to determine your level placement. 

If you have an unavoidable conflict with the audition time, please reply to this email in advance: info@bostonswingcentral.org. There is no make-up audition.
