Here is information on the go-go master class. It is a subgenre of funk music with an emphasis on specific rhythm patterns, and participation call and response. It originated in Washington DC in the early 70’s which is why it would be great to incorporate a workshop when in DC:

The O Museum in the Mansion in DC is the craziest museum ever – It is a vast mansion with 80 secret doors to find and over 100 rooms holding the unique collections and memorabilia from the most famous artists, musicians, authors, athletes, scientist, scholars, historians and more. Have a look here:

If we were unable to get the venues that I’ve based your package on, then we’d look at the ones mentioned above. This may incur additional costs which I’ve listed next to the venue if there is a cost. Most there is not an additional cost for.

The American Dream (see HERE) is a huge indoor entertainment and retail complex with shopping and dining plus a theme park, a water park and ski slope within. I’ve attached a few photos – it is mental! There is a performance stage right in the centre of the Mall which would attract many passersby. I’ve included tickets to the theme park and waterpark to spend the day here.
