The Workshops!
We’ve lined up some top class talent to teach and perform! Due to the intimate nature of the festival, workshops will have small numbers of students so you can be sure that you’ll be able to see and hear what’s being taught! We have limited space here so please see the Shimmy by the Sea website for more information and click on the teachers name to go to their website...
