FAQs

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

No age limits as long as everyone knows they MUST DANCE. The music can be loud and young children may benefit from headphones to protect their ears (or anyone can do this if they wish). ID's are not required - your name will be a list at check-in but since this is an alcohol-free event ID's are not required to be presented.

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

Guests may park on campus on the third level of the Parkway Garage, the first level of the Alpine Garage, or in parking lot 220. Parking is $2.00/hour; pay kiosks accept both cash and credit cards.

Guests may park for FREE in 500 series lots which are located at and near the former Four Diamond Sports Complex, 5025 N. Nevada Avenue (across the street from the University Villiage shopping center). A free shuttle service transporting passengers to and from the main campus runs every 15-20 minutes (we recommend allowing yourself 20+ minutes). The free shuttle drops off directly in front of Centennial Hall- you will find GOCA1420 on the second floor in room 201.

Will the lunch have gluten-free and vegetarian options? 

Yes.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No. 

Can I buy my ticket at the door?

Yes, but the price goes up so please buy in advance if possible. Ticket portal will be open until 5 pm DAY BEFORE EVENT. 

Is my registration/ticket transferrable?

If you email us we will do our best to transfer the ticket to the person who will be taking your place. 

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
