2020 WASCA Festival Cancellation

We regret to inform you that the 2020 WASCA Festival has been cancelled due to the coronavirus. Cancellations and requested rollovers were pouring in and we have no idea where we might have ended up, but more than half of the WASCA Board would have been unable to attend and assist because of underlying or potential health issues. The Alexandria Mark Hilton has graciously allowed us to cancel the Festival Contract under the "Acts of God" (force majeure) provisions of the Contract to ensure the health and safety of our dancing community. Expressions of gratitude to the Hotel are encouraged.

We know that you all are as disappointed as we are.

The Hilton will be cancelling your room reservation and those of you who provided checks for your deposit will be reimbursed in about 20 business days. If you would like to call to check, following are the phone numbers. You will need your hotel confirmation number which was sent to you previously by Stephanie and Joe Corson.

  • 800-445-8667 - those who reserved with a credit card.
  • 703-845-1010 - those who reserved with a check. (If you encounter difficulties with the automated system, just stay on the line until you are transferred to an actual person.)

WASCA Festival Registration will roll over your registrations to the WASCA 2021 Festival. A 2021 WASCA Flyer will be sent soon to those who have previously registered.

Again, we apologize for this once in a lifetime event but we know you all understand the circumstances.
