Workshops

Northwest Dance Network is now using the Amilia platform to register for classes and workshops. Dancers will create their own respective accounts, allowing “shopping cart” registrations, see a calendar of upcoming activities, as well as maintaining a history of classes and workshops attended.

Two links are at the bottom of the Amilia pages. “Knowledge base” provides a number of useful topics with detailed answers. “Support” will direct you to email a particular concern directly to Amilia.
We are pleased to offer this enhanced process and will be adding additional features in the future.
