A la carte Pricing

Some dances will be available a-la-carte, as long as we don't sell out of full weekend passes. If you're planning to attend most/all of the dances, the full weekend pass is the better value (especially if you are a Lindy Hop St. Louis member--member discount will not apply to dances paid for a la carte). We will post available a la carte prices here!

Registration Terms & Conditions: The Nitty Gritty

Tickets to River City Mess Around are non-refundable. We understand that plans change, though, so tickets are transferable (i.e. you may sell your ticket to another dancer) until June 24, 2016 (one week before the event starts). By registering for this event, you acknowledge that dancing is a physical activity that may carry risk. You agree to hold harmless Lindy Hop St. Louis, its instructors, Board of Directors, staff, and volunteers for any accident or injury that may occur while dancing or otherwise.
