Two Step Tidewater News

As of 04-24-2008

  (01/16/2009 ws)                                                                          

Hello everyone,

Thanks to those who showed up last week. The Rumba lesson proved to be very successful. This coming
Sunday we are teaching the Salsa.

Lately our turnout has been on the downswing. We don't know why but are going to take a stab in the
dark with a few changes to help bring up the attendance.

We try to offer music for many more dance styles due to requests in the past. Although we are still
open to playing music for those styles we have noticed that some are more popular than others.

Our goals are:
1. We want more dancers introduced to couples dancing.
2. We want existing dancers to enjoy our social dance.
3. We want an average of 60 dancers minimum attending each week.
4. We want our social dances to be profitable to us without raising the entry cost.

Better advertising to the general public will help us realize our first goal. The local media loves
concerts but ignores audience participation events like ours so we depend on word of mouth
advertising and our newsletters.

More attention on our part to what the dancers want will help with our second goal. As of this
Sunday some of the less danced styles will be made request only. The more danced styles will be
played more often.

We hope that these changes will help us realize our other goals. Please come out and enjoy our
dance. And, feel free to make positive suggestions.

Note:
Additions to our emailed "other venue" dances will be included at our discretion. (and if we have
time to post them)
Not included will be:

1 - Dances located in non-dance businesses (Bars, Night Clubs, etc.) They can afford their own
advertising and never promote our dances.
2 - Dances that conflict with our schedule
3 - Dances run by instructors and/or studios engaged in unethical lesson sales.
4 - Dances run by instructors/studios/individuals that do not promote our social dances as a return
favor.
5 - Dances that I do not know about. I can't include them if I don't know of them.
6 - We seldom advertise lessons offered by instructors outside of DanceSportVA. There is just not
that much space in this newsletter.

We promote venues that offer a clean, well run social dance atmosphere. As a rule, although we
promote dances at different venues, we do not promote studios or instructors other than those we
work with and trust.


Any other ideas???   Mail it to us:     ( Walter & Judy Schultz or Will Harper
