We are not charging admission to Argyle this year and are instead relying on your donations, but you must register to reserve your space and receive the venue address(es) for in-person attendance, or to indicate interest in virtual attendance!
Argyle parties and classes are best enjoyed by dancers familiar with all basic and intermediate formations. Dancers who are currently taking or have recently completed a beginner class may attend as spectators, or may request permission to attend as dancers with their teacher's approval.
Classes suitable for newer dancers will be offered!
Online registrations are preferred.
If you register by postal mail after October 17, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to determine space availability.
After completing the registration form, you will receive an automated confirmation from Google with a copy of your responses (it should arrive in a few minutes; check your spam/junk folder). Please verify that the information is correct, and edit your responses as needed. If you did not receive a registration confirmation, please e-mail email@example.com and let us know.
The venue information and Zoom links were sent on Tuesday, November 8, 2022. If you did not receive them, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know.
Rather than charging admission, this year Argyle is requesting that attendees contribute to help cover venue, teacher and musician costs. See the registration form for suggested contribution amounts.
You may also choose to sponsor one or more dances on the Welcome Dance or Argyle Ball programs for $10 each, or an entire program for $100. Sponsor names will be listed in the dance booklets.
Dance sponsorships are still gratefully accepted, but the deadline for being listed in the dance booklets has passed.
Please consider an additional donation to support the 40th Argyle in 2023, which coincides with the RSCDS Centenary!
Dance sponsorships and other donations over the suggested contribution amounts will be treated as 501(c)(3) tax-deductible donations. Receipts for your 501(c)(3) tax-deductible donation will be sent by January 31, 2023.
To make your registration contribution or donation by postal mail, please make your check payable to RSCDS Northern Virginia Branch and mail to:
RSCDS Northern Virginia Branch
PO Box 3333
Alexandria, VA 22302
Please acknowledge the Northern Virginia Branch Health Policy if you plan to attend Argyle in person. You do not need to acknowledge the policy again if you have already done so since December 2021.
Some or all of the Argyle events may be photographed or recorded for possible future promotional or educational purposes.
Our goal is to record only the teachers, demonstration dancers, musicians, and other presenters, but we can't 100% guarantee that all other participants will be omitted from recordings.
For in-person attendees, announcements about recording will be made during the event. We will indicate the parts of the room being recorded, so that dancers may choose to position themselves outside the recording area.
For Zoom attendees, when recording starts you will receive a visual and audio prompt. While recording is in progress, you'll see a red, blinking dot near the top of your screen, with the word 'Recording' beside it.
