Frequently Asked

What is the Centensive?

The Centensive is a three hour mini intensive workshop held by Arjay Centeno.  It will be from 7pm-10pm on Thursday night July 13.  There will be social dancing in the main ballroom after the Centensive until probably 1am.  The Centensive cost of CAD $125 ($140 after June 13) is not included in a TOSHC Weekend Pass.


In this first part we will go over drills and patterns to improve your movement as a lead and follow. Body flight, body orientation and posture, and speed control will be our main topics.


What is your connection really communicating to your partner? In this segment we will cover how leaders can create effortless smooth leads and followers can be proactive in their musicality and styling.


Arjay’s favorite tips and tricks to inspire you to create on the floor. Turn your basics into building blocks for bigger and better things. Styling and improv-ography will be our main focus.

Leveled Workshops and Auditioning

Your WSDC standing determines what level of workshops you can take (ie: Newcomer/Novice, Intermediate, Advanced).  If you have no WSDC standing you need to audition to be able to take a workshop above Novice.  If you want to take a higher levelled workshop than your WSDC level, you would need to audition to be allowed into the higher level workshop.


Hustle workshops are similarly levelled using the Hustle Dance Tour points system.  Look for your points in the HDT Registry.  Again if you have no HDT points, you need to audition to take a Hustle workshop above Novice, and you would also need to audition to be allowed into a higher level workshop than the level you are in.

Day Passes

With a Day Pass, you can take any of the workshops that day, and social dance throughout the day between breaks in the main ballroom activities (unless it’s closed), social dance until the ballrooms close that night, and watch all the performances and competitions.
