Do you offer Group Discounts?

Yes we do. Details are as follows:

  • a group of 10 people gets 10% discount for pass prices
  • a group of 15 people gets 15% discount for pass prices
  • a group of 20+ people gets 15% discount for pass prices + a free party pass

Important! These group discounts are automatically applied by our payment system. In order for this to work, the group must be registered by the group leader in one transaction. You can add multiple Tickets to your order, it's like online shopping :-)

Special Discount for Group Leaders

Due to the fact that Organising small Groups is hard work and that organising big Groups is even harder work. And due to the fact that Group Leaders are unwillingly promoting Citadel Swing in their respective Communities, we will offer them a special Pass Discount, to award all the affort they put into it.

This Discount is calculated as follows: 2% * (number of members in the group - the group leader) and will be applied isolated (not added on top of the group discount).

Eg: Group Leader registers a group of 20 people. Group Leader Discount will be 2% * (20-1) = 38%. This means that from a Full Pass which costs 110 EUR, the Group Leader will have to pay 68.2 EUR.

Important! This special discounts need to be manually created by us based on each individual Group, so all the Group Leaders should get in touch with us before registering their Group, to get the special Discount Code.

If you have any questions regarding this, don't hesitate to contact Andrei or Lumi directly.

What payment options do you offer?

We offer the following payments methods:

Paypal: use your Paypal funds to pay for your Citadel Swing Pass

Workshops

How to select your workshop level

Some tickets ask for a workshop level. Here's what the different levels are:

Level 2: you know most WCS basic patterns, but you still don’t feel confident when social dancing. You often feel disconnected from your partner and don’t know how it happened.

Level 3: you know basics of West Coast Swing and you feel confident when social dancing. You want to learn more about teamwork to make every dance as pleasant as possible. Your connection loses its elasticity on very fast or very slow songs.

Level 4: you are not afraid of any tempo. You can social dance with partners of different levels (beginner to advanced) without any problem. You want to find your own style and start being more musical not only using the beat of the music but every one of its accents; you want to learn new variations, as well as new moves.

How will the Workshop Auditions work?

Your workshops start on Friday at 18:00 with the Auditions.

You will get 3 songs to dance on. You will rotate before each song. This will help us ensure that you picked the right level for you, so you can get the most out of this Event.

After the audition you will receive your event wristband at the registration desk.

If you have missed your audition or have any problem with it, please look for Andrei or Lumi.

Are the workshops gender balanced?

Yes. We will take extra special care during the registration & audition process in order for every level to have a 50 - 50 gender balance. We want to ensure that all of you get the maximum benefit out of your workshops and that you don't spend half of it waiting for a leader or a follower.

Does the the optional Styling Workshop cost extra?

Yes, the Styling Workshop is an additional 2 hours of training, one hour with Diego & Jessica and one with Jakub & Emeline. The cost is €35, and you can purchase a ticket by selecting the extra option when you get your normal Workshop Pass.

Can I pay for just the Styling Workshop?

We wanted the Styling Workshop to be a bonus addition for people already participating in the main workshops. As such, you can only purchase a Styling Workshop ticket along with a Workshop Pass.

General

How do I make sure I don't damage the dance floor?

Please take care of our dance floor by using a pair of dancing shoes which you don't use outside.

Don't bring in any chairs, tables, food, drinks, cigarettes or dance talc and please don't use metal heels.

Thank you!

Can I bring drinks on the dance-floor?

Please do not bring any drinks on the dance floor, it's dangerous for everyone dancing who may slip on a spilled drink and hurt themselves.
