If you find that you cannot attend the Festival, email, write or call about canceling your registration. When you arrive at the festival please report to the festival registration desk (bottom floor, lower lobby). Registration badges will be given then, and these badges must be worn at all times. No pre-printed or laminated badges will be processed after 3/1/2020 (meaning you will receive a hand-written badge if you register late).
Hotel Reservations & Cancellations are to be made only with the Festival Housing Chairs, Stephanie & Joe Corson. Please complete the Housing form (bottom half of the registration form) indicating lodging desired. Please include your deposit of the first night’s room and tax (14.5% plus $1.25), or a credit card number, required to guarantee your reservation, & send it to the Housing Chairs (address on the form). You will NOT receive the special rate if you reserve through the hotel. Preference will be given to those reserving for 3 nights. If dancers check out early, they have to pay for the unused room nights except in cases of emergency. Only the Festival Director can approve early checkouts. The Deadline for reserving rooms with Festival pricing is February 4, 2020.
