Welcome to OlyWaves and beautiful Olympia! If you are looking for a place to stay while attending one of our workshops, there are many wonderful choices. Our workshops take place at Fusion, which is conveniently located in downtown Olympia. Most of the lodgings listed below, as well as many fine restaurants, are within walking distance of Fusion. Another possibility, not listed below, and available on a first-come basis, is to stay with a local host-dancer. We do ask guests to share some monetary love with their local hosts as a way of saying thanks. Contact Ronny for more information about home-stays.
