Dancing all night. Chillin' all day. All weekend long.

The Dance Thing is a summertime fusion weekend just north of Seattle, WA. During the day, you can participate in community-driven activities and workshops, or relax and explore the beautiful 50 acres of land the lodge is on. At night you’ll be dancing to your favorite live and DJ’d music until the wee hours of the morning.

This is a CAMPING EVENT, no beds will be available for purchase during registration. If you have any accessibility needs, please contact us directly and we will gladly work to accommodate you.

Venue

The Lodge At Cedar Springs

Experience a taste of history, the beauty of untouched nature, and just enough modern conveniences to ensure a truly memorable event!

The venue features:
• A 1000 square-foot dance hall
• 50 acres of land to explore
• A creek for swimming and relaxing (a 5-10 minute walk from the festivities)
• A central fire pit for evening campfires and s'mores galore!

Unconference

Community-Driven Workshops and Activities

We're embracing the "unconference" style of workshops for the weekend. This means that if ANYONE has a skill they'd like to share, a topic they'd like to discuss, or even board games they'd like to play, they are welcome to pick a space and run their thing!

We will provide a scheduling framework, but we're open to any workshops or activities people would like to bring to the table.

Ticket Information

Pricing

In seeking to create a sustainable model for organizing this event, we value recognizing and paying our team for their labor from the start. This means all of our organizers, musicians, DJs and contractors are compensated for the work they put in to make The Dance Thing happen.

Our ticketing is structured as a guided sliding scale: the below prices are recommendations based on our budgeting for the event.

If you're able to contribute more than the suggested prices, or they are outside what you can afford, you'll have the option during registration to enter whatever price you feel comfortable with!

No one will be turned away due to lack of funds – we want you here!

$230

Our most affordably-priced ticket tier, meant to keep this event accessible for those with lower incomes.

$265

The middle-of-the road price. If everyone attending purchased tickets at this tier, we'd break even.

$300

For all you high rollers out there! Tickets at this tier contribute to our scholarship fund, and to making this event sustainable for years to come.


Children 12 years old and younger can attend the event free of charge.
Tickets for attendees ages 13-17 are half price.
All attendees who are 18 or older pay the full ticket price.

Food

We will be offering 5 communal meals during the weekend: Friday evening, Saturday midday and evening, and Sunday midday and evening.

As we plan our menu, we will endeavor to offer options to account for as many allergies and dietary restrictions as we can, but cannot guarantee that we will be able to accommodate everyone. All meals will definitely be nut-free, with gluten-free and dairy-free options.

If you are interested in joining the meal plan, it is available for an additional $35.
