IF YOU NEED ANYTHING PROVIDED (like a whiteboard or the projector) YOU NEED TO TELL ME BEFOREHAND, WITH AS MUCH NOTICE AS POSSIBLE. Thanks for understanding!

INSTRUCTOR CLASSES/PERKS

Yahoo!! Here are some options you may wish to take advantage of.

  • FREE performance photos and video. You will have a chance to approve photos/video before they’re released, and the photos/video will also be available for you to download and use a you like for free.

  • FREE CLASSES: You may show up at any class day-of and take a spot in the class, assuming there's room.

    • When you arrive, just let the check-in person know you're an instructor and would like to take the class. If the class has space, they'll just need to take your name down.

    • Feel free to check with the Info Booth beforehand to see if a class is sold out or not. Even sold-out classes often have 2-3 people not show up, so chances are great (though not 100% guaranteed) that you'll get in.

    • You're welcome to take any and as many classes as you like this way.

PLEASE-READS

Please plan to arrive onsite 20m before your class is due to start, so you can be properly prepared.

Please plan to end your class on time, (5m over ok but no more), to be respectful of those teaching after you and also students darting off to other events. Thanks so much!

Feel free to bring merch to sell before/after classes, as long as it doesn't interfere with other classes prep! We can supply tables outside each classroom for this purpose, or you can sneak into the Info Booth and sell from there at any point during the weekend.

Need something? Email me beforehand, or just ask at the Info booth-- we can help with food pickup, supplies for class, rides, or anything else at all. (Advance notice appreciated!)

PROJECTOR INFORMATION

We have a projector for your use if you like, it's a BenQ MW519 DLP Projector - 720p - HDTV

You will be running everything from your laptop, so plan to have your presentation all prepped on your laptop prior. You will be plugging in your laptop to the projector using an HDMI port (below), and also plugging your laptop into speakers if you have audio you would like to play.

This is an HDMI port. If your computer has one of those, you're golden.

We will provide cords for HDMI and audio. Be sure to bring your laptop cord to plug it in so it keeps charged. 
If you have an old computer or something that doesn't have an HDMI port, you'll either have to bring your own cables that plug into video projectors, or if you really can't figure it out let me know and we'll talk. 

It's a good idea to load your presentation onto a usb drive, just in case you have technical issues with your computer. We will have my laptop there for emergencies, which we know for sure plugs into the projector.
