If you are a WSDC Intermediate level dancer, this is your chance to be a part of a weekend long mentorship program.

We are happy to announce that our facilitators for this edition are Stevie Dawn Blakely and Demetre Souliotes.
IMPORTANT-Only applicants who can attend all scheduled meet-ups including our Orientation and Sunday afternoon final-meet-up will be eligible. To apply, Intermediate applicants go to https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/WSM3X79

For Austin Rocks we will only be accepting 15 applicants. The AI program is unique in that each time we run the program, we match a small number of mentors and mentees together in order to provide an exceptional experience. We put a lot of effort into making the ideal pairings to provide a mentorship experience that is based not just on dance, but shared interests and goals. All of the applicants are possible candidates, but unfortunately we cannot place everyone, every time. If you do not get placed this time you can resubmit your application again for future AI Programs and we will be sure to put your application toward the top of the list. We have had some questions regarding how we match mentees to mentors and inclusion in the program: Here are some details to help shed some light on our decision making process. To be fair, we consider first the timeliness of the application, time and energy put into the application, and the best possible matches based on the mentors/all stars and their strengths/skillset. We also consider whether the applicant has already been through the program.
IMPORTANT: The program is intended for people who already plan to attend the event as there is no additional charge for participation in the program. Acceptance into the program is not intended to be a determining reason to attend the event.
We appreciate every application and the support and enthusiasm for AI! Thank you for supporting this community building program and see you on the dance floor!
Future AI program events: Chicago Classic, Wild Wild Westie in Dallas, TX, Austin Rocks in Austin, TX.
