FAQs

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

Children 8 and older are welcome, particularly to the Saturday workshops. There is no charge for children 8-15, who should be accompanied by a responsible adult. Although IDs are not required, an admission discount is available for students of secondary or higher education, so if you want to take advantage of the discount, bring your student ID to the registration table at the event.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

There is ample parking at or adjacent to the Capital Ritz building. Parking is also allowed on the street. If you plan to take the train to Jefferson City from St. Louis or Kansas City (see Amtrak.com), you will need transportation from Jefferson Landing in downtown Jefferson City to the venue.

What can I bring into the event?

Light snacks and water will be provided at the dances, but you may bring other food items into the venue. The dress code is casual; dancers should wear lightweight, comfortable clothing and soft-soled or leather-soled shoes to preserve the wooden dancefloor—no spike heels or cowboy boots. (Please carry-in appropriate dance shoes as needed.) The venue is tobacco and firearms free.
