The Rocktober DJ’s have been announced!

Meet the Competitors
We are happy to announce that the competitors for the DJ Battle of the Century have been selected.  We received dozens of applications and it was a very tough selection process.  After much deliberation here are the finalists:

Loreto Agdinaoay ~ Cleveland, OH (’07 & ‘08 Champ!)
Erwin Amurao ~ Columbus, OH
Greg Avakian ~ Philadelphia, PA
Brandon Lawrence ~ Grand Rapids, MI
Breanna Perry ~ Nashville, TN
Mike Richardson ~ Lexington, KY
Windsor John ~ Windsor, ON Canada

New Beginner Track Added!
Due to popular demand we have added a beginner track to the weekend and you’re not going to believe how cheap we’ve made it.  For $40 you get three beginner Lindy Hop classes plus entry into both the Friday and Saturday dances!  Check out our Schedule Page for class times.  Take note that the Aerials I class starts immediately following the beginner track.  This way you can take part in the high flyin’ fun!  Space in the beginner track is very limited, so register today to reserve your spot!

Limited Private Lessons Available!
A limited number of private lessons will be available with Kevin and/or Jo during the weekend.  Please contact Mandy through our Contact Page to get more info.

Tickets Are Going Quick!
Just like CBUS, Rocktober has a limited number of tickets ard they are going quick!  Register today so you don’t miss out.  Trust me, you’ll be kicking yourself if you do.  Plus, the price goes up $10 after October 1st!

We hope to see you there.
