Here is a list of most frequently asked questions about Camp Hollywood.  If you don't find an answer to your question here, please e-mail us at, we'll be glad to help!

1. Can I buy a day pass for classes or an individual class?

No, sorry.  In order to take classes you do need to be a weekend pass holder.

2. What class level should I sign up for?

We have eliminated the need to register for a specific level in advance, due to having learned from the past few years that the vast majority of people prefer to take a combination of Intermediate and Advanced classes, or would like to drop to beginner to take a beginning Balboa class, etc.  We can tell you that the Beginner track is progressive, so we recommend staying with this track for the most consistency.  Also the new Advanced Plus track is partners required, and we ask that only physically fit advanced dancers with partners take these classes as they may require physically demanding material such as aerials & lifts, fast lindy, etc.

3. What if I want to do everything BUT the classes at the camp (ie, spectate the daytime contests, attend evening dances, etc)?

We recommend you buy our new "Party Pass" now which gets entrance to all events if you don't want to take classes.  You can add a contest at any time to this pass if you decide to be a competitor, but be aware that some contests will be full before the camp weekend (Amateur Jack and Jill, Showcase and Am Classic and Am Lindy are likely to be full).

4. What is your refund policy?

You can receive refunds on weekend passes up until July31st of that camp year with a $25 fee for each weekend pass refunded.  There are no refunds after July 31st, but you can reserve your unused pass for the following year, e-mail us for details.  You can also transfer your pass to someone else - just be sure to send us the name of the person who will be using your pass.  You can get a full refund on all contest fees until the cut off of online registration - you can still drop your contests during the camp but cannot get a refund on contest fees once the camp has begun.

5.  I am planning on chaperoning a minor during Camp Hollywood, how does this work?

We allow one chaperone per minor, e-mail us for details.

6. What is included in the weekend pass rate?

All events - so, all classes, evening dances, contest spectating, after hours, etc.  Not included are meals, hotel rooms, and contest fees if you're planning on competing.

7. I want to watch my friend/relative in a contest, what does this cost?

It depends on when the contest occurs - we have daytime contest spectating tickets and evening dance tickets in the "registration" section.  If you need help, shoot us an e-mail!

8. I can't check in Friday night, when are your check in times?

Check in and new camp sign ups go on throughout the weekend.  We start check in at 8 PM Friday evening and then again at 9 AM Saturday morning.

9. What do I do if the hotel says it's full or the rate isn't available?

E-mail us at, we may be able to add rooms for you!
