Registration for Epicenter 2024

Registration is now open. Prices are:

  • Adult: $185
  • Youth: $125 (for ages 30 and under)
  • Work-Trade: $90 for now (we will contact you about the availability)
  • Limited income scholarship ($0 for now; we will contact you.)
  • If there is still space available as of Friday, March 22, we will open registration for portions of the weekend. We’re trying to enroll folks full-time, as that’s what keeps the lights on for a weekend and enables us to bring in top-notch talent from around the country. But we understand that some of you may not have the time or funds to attend full-time — so, stay tuned.

Epicenter COVID Policy

Masks are optional for all participants. NBCDS strongly encourages people to get vaccinations and current boosters, but we will not be requiring vaccination for this event. Testing is required on the day of arrival at the dance hall. Bring a photo of your negative rapid test result. (We’ll only have a few tests on hand at the door, and we request that you obtain your own test if possible.) We of course ask people not to attend if they are feeling ill. This policy may change if the situation warrants, and people will be notified as early as possible.

Rhonda Cayford is the Registrar for this event. If you have questions or problems, email her at:
