Dance Schedule and Events

The current schedule is here (subject to change).

Remember that Friday dinner is on your own.


A complete Warren Wilson campus map is here. A more detailed map with locations of various activities and the designated parking areas will be posted soon. Everyone will be sent a parking pass via e-mail. It would be helpful to print it out ahead of time, fill in your name, and leave it on the driver's side of the dashboard.


Check-in begins at 4:30 pm on Friday at Bryson Gym. Depending on the options you chose during registration for Summer Soirée, you will receive:

  • Your personalized dance button. This is your ticket. Wear it for admission into Bryson Gym and for all dance sessions and workshops all weekend.

  • Your T-shirt if you pre-ordered one. There will be none for sale at the dance.

  • Your green wrist band if you purchased the full meal plan or a yellow wrist band if you purchased just the Saturday dinner.

  • Your dorm and room assignment if staying on campus. You will then be able to unload your belongings near your assigned dorm.


Additional housing information to be posted soon.
