to anyone who is interested I will be putting together a car pool for this trip or if anyone else wants to put one together I could use a ride up. This is an amazing event and well worth the drive or flight. I saw tickets on southwest.com for $71 one way

IMPORTANT UPDATE

With the economy in the state that it is, money is tighter than it has been in some time.

That being said, to have a price jump at this time would be against what Come Rain Come Shine is all about: great dancing, excellent instruction and having a good time at an affordable price.

That is why we will be keeping the price an affordable $115 dollars this year. We're making sure you can enjoy a weekend of hours and hours of dancing, instruction with champions from all over the country and much more, without breaking your piggy bank.

Come Rain Come Shine is everyone's event, so we want everyone there. We've taken your suggestions and can't wait to show you what Come Rain Come Shine 2009 has to offer.
