What to Bring
If you are rooming on campus, bring a check for $35 to check-in made out to Endicott College for your room key and meal card deposit. For all other meal plan participants, a $10 check is required for your meal card deposit. Your check will be ripped up or returned to you at check-out when you turn in your meal card and key. Cash can be left if necessary, however, if you will not be checking out during the designated time, there is a $2 shipping fee to return cash deposits by mail.
A change of shoes for dancing. A selection of comfortable dance shoes is recommended. One of the class spaces, the Aerobics Room, requires either suede (or chrome leather) soled shoes or clean sneakers to be worn (no leather or hard soled shoes).
Bring shoes to chrome!! If you want to turn a wonderfully comfortable pair of shoes into full time dance shoes in which you can effortlessly slide across the floor, a shoe chroming party will be offered during the weekend. Find more info on the Special Classes page.
Beantown’s Got Talent will be back! This variety show on Tuesday night is one of the not-to-be-missed highlights of the week—full of suspense, drama, comedy, and entertainment. If you have a special talent to share, start planning your act! Don’t forget to pack that rainbow wig, juggling balls, batons, kazoo or whatever you’ll need to prove your ultimate stardom at Beantown 2020!
