As you know, I have been offering International ballroom standard and Latin American dance classes for 12 months now for free. Yes, for free. So every time you take a class of one hour and a half like this one, you save anywhere from $11 to $23 (using regular commercial dance studio rates) when you contribute your fee toward the class.
Your"fees" cover rent for the rooms we use and sometimes pays barely for my gas bill and the wear and tear of my car for driving 100 kms. each time). There were times when the class number falls short of a certain numbers amd I would pick up the tab. And that has been OK.
But now the rent for the rooms has just gone up by a few dollars and therefore it puts an extra stress on the Meetup.
After considering the options, I have decided that in order to continue providing this service to Toronto downtowners like yourselves and others, I would need to change your contribution by $1 effective this Sunday with your class of 90 minutes. So instead of registering at $4, it will be $5.
Hope you will continue to support this Meetup effort--the only one I know of --which provides you with skills that improves your social life through meeting, as one of you wrote recently, "sweet" people who love dancing and at a truly affordable fee.
