We are currently at capacity for Epicenter 2020. Please register below to join the waitlist, and we’ll let you know as soon as a spot opens up! Do plan to attend the final evening–open to everyone on a drop-in basis–on Sunday March 29 7pm-10pm with the String Rays and Will Mentor.
This urban contra party dance weekend of unprecedented proportion will rock the West Coast off the Richter scale. The March 27-29, 2020 weekend of nearly constant contra dancing will satisfy even the most discerning of dance fanatics. Join us in picturesque Mill Valley in the heart of Marin County, just north of the San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge at the beautiful Strawberry Reception Hall.
