Ben Morris Denver Workshop Weekend
January 22 & 23rd, 2022 (*must be vaccinated)

Are you ready to take your WCS to the next level?  Train for one weekend with the best in the world!

Ben Morris aka BenMO, travels 47 out of 52 weekends per year (#preCovid of course), performing, judging, and teaching packed workshops around the world.

Ben is both a champion WCS dancer and a Champion Lindy Hopper. He’s a 3 time US Open Swing Dance Champion, 2 time world Swing Dance Champion, and a California Swing Dance Hall of Fame award winner. Ben is in the top 3 in the world for WSDC points in the champions Jack and Jill division.

He was also a featured dancer in the movie Love N’ Dancing and the Leann Rimes Music Video “Swingin.” He’s known for his fun dance style, infectious personality, and enjoyable workshops.

And on January 22 & 23rd, he’s coming to Denver to teach YOU.

We’re talking 4 hours (5.5 hrs if you opt to take his intensive!) of amazing, intentional, and focused WCS education with perhaps the most well-known and influential dancer in West Coast Swing.  

Crazy, right?  Keep reading to learn more about what we have planned!

Covid Precautions

Ben Morris

*Must be fully vaccinated from Covid with Pfizer, Moderna, or J&J to attend all parts of this event.  We will only accept your physical vaccine card or the ColoradoID app.  Booster shots and wearing a mask are strongly recommended but not required at this time.  We may change those requirements as we get closer to the event.

A negative rapid or PCR test, taken and verified the day you arrive at the event is required for both Sat & Sunday (ie test both days).  If you take the test at home, please take a picture of the test that includes your photo ID.  Tests will not be provided by WCS Masterclass.

We will also be offering a full refund in the event that you contract Covid leading up to the event or during the event.  Or if the state shuts venues down due to Covid.

Update 1/7/22:  The state of Colorado was offering free rapid tests but they just shut down their order form today after getting inundated for requests.  If you don’t have rapid tests in your possession right now, you should order some ASAP as they’re in short supply.  Here is a page with some places you might check for availability. 

Update 1/6/22:  With how things are progressing (the positivity rate is currently 24%), we may be requiring masks during the event.  We’ll make the decision a few days before.  Also, if you’re struggling to find rapid Covid tests (they’re in very high demand), we’ve put together a page with some suggestions.

Pricing

At most WCS workshop weekends, you would spend around $129 to get that many hours in a room with Ben Morris.  However… BenMo is bringing the cost down as a bonus incentive for those who buy early.

To keep adequate spacing (thanks Covid!) we’ll only have 100 weekend passes available and here are the costs: 

  • $69 for the first 20 buyers (that’s almost 1/2 off!) TIER 1 IS SOLD OUT
  • $79 for the next 20 TIER 2 IS SOLD OUT
  • $89 for the next 20 TIER 3 IS SOLD OUT
  • $99 for the next 20 
  • $109 for the next 20 
  • $129 at the door (if spots are still available)

Will you be selling individual workshops?  Also, can we just attend the dance on Saturday 1/22/22?
If we hit our attendance cap of 100, then no we will not be offering individual workshops or entry to the dance.  We will make an announcement as to whether or not we’re going to allow this as we get closer.

Am I "good enough" to attend these workshops?

Maybe you’re thinking, “This all sounds great, Jonathan, but do I need to be an advanced dancer to take these classes?” Absolutely not! If you’re comfortable with your 6 & 8 count basics (sugar push, left & right side pass, tuck, whip, reverse whip), then you’re good!  Don’t know one of those yet?  Find a place that has beginner WCS classes prior to the event! 

No matter if you’re a novice or an all-star, everyone can get something amazing from Ben Morris.
