Bring a yoga mat

if you will be attending the yoga workshop

Dancing Shoes Only

Carry in clean dance shoes with non-marking soles. Absolutely no street shoes allowed on the beautiful wooden dance floor. We want to return.

Lockers Available - Bring a lock

the center will allow us to leave locks on the lockers near the dance for the duration of the weekend and we are allowed to leave items in lockers overnight. Please lock up your valuables in either a locker or your car, as we share this space with other groups and Big Scioty cannot be responsible for possessions. The center will have a few locks available for purchase.


No childcare is available. Children who can participate in the dance weekend are welcome. Children must be closely supervised while not dancing.


A nutritious assortment of snacks will be available during the weekend, with vegan and gluten-free alternatives. A restaurant list and map will be available in the registration area.

Clothing Exchange

Bring any gently used dancing clothes and exchange for new-to-you items. Small donation requested if you haven't brought anything but see something you like.

“Dress like a Snowflake” is on Sunday (optional!)

All dancers are invited to dress in their snowiest attire on Sunday! No special reason – just a local tradition that grew.

Water Bottles

Please help us reduce plastic cup usage by bringing your own water bottle to the weekend. Thanks!

Bring a Swimsuit, towel & lock

Pool and hot tub passes available – The Worthington Community Center has
a large pool area with hot tub and a lap pool, as well as an excellent fitness
area. Purchase your unlimited-use fitness center pass at the center’s main
desk. Good for the whole weekend for $8. Pool hours are subject to change, but at
the time of printing are 9-8:30 Friday, 12-7:30 Sat., and 10:00-5:30 Sunday. You’ll
need to provide your own towel, as well as a lock for the locker room. (And a
swimsuit, of course!)

Scholarship policy

Winter WarmUp offers a limited number of working scholarships. These are awarded (1) to make it possible for younger dancers and others with financial limitations to attend, and (2) to ensure our volunteer needs are met. For every hour worked, $10 will be deducted from the price of admission. No full scholarships will be awarded. To apply, please contact Martha Shaw at marthapottershaw at gmail dot com by Nov. 15. Acceptance will be determined by the Winter WarmUp Scholarship Committee and will be based on volunteer needs, with first priority given to new applicants.
