Arrive in Miami
DJ/Instructor Meeting (Mandatory)
Have fun and relax!
Friday morning/midday: Travel day! Arrive safely in Florida, where you’ll load into one of our sexy vans (someone from the support team will be eagerly waiting for ya in the driver’s seat) and head to the Freehand to check in. Find your airport shuttle assignment here. If you’re not assigned to a van, it’s because you’re arriving at an offbeat hour and we’ll need you to Uber to the Freehand on us; Kelly will reach out to coordinate.

💃 THE "RULES" 💃
What’s mandatory for me to attend?
Glad you asked!!! Your instructor choreo/DJ meeting on Friday is mandatory. Please come at your assigned time, and come in good shape! Friday night dinner and Saturday morning’s professional workshops are also mandatory. Saturday morning yoga is mandatory for FLX instructors only.
Ugh. Why can’t I just have fun and get drunk?
It’s important for all of us to utilize this insanely rare time all together to share ideas, receive important company updates, and develop professionally! We’ve allotted for PLENTY of time to let loose, so please collab with us and show up with your (sober) game face on to mandatory events.
What’s paid and what’s courtesy of 305?
We’re covering transportation from the airport to the hotel, dinner/drinks on Friday night, and transportation back to the airport on Sunday. We can provide affordable options for food and drink for the rest of the weekend! Optional activities like parasailing, jet skiing, biking, or excessive Daiquiri consumption will not be covered by 305!
How much should I budget for?
Conservatively, please budget $200 for the weekend. This will cover food, reasonable partying, and some optional activities. If you opt in for higher ticket activities like jet skiing or parasailing, please budget an additional $100-$150.
When will I have to pay for the trip?
If you opted to split your contribution over two pay cycles, we’ll withdraw from your payroll on 3/6 and 3/20. If you did not opt to split the cost over two cycles, your full contribution will be deducted on 3/6. Your contribution is directly tied to how many classes you teach/DJ at 305.
