Ten, twenty & thirty years ago there were numerous teen and young adult groups. What happened to them? Many stopped dancing because of family, work, personal priorities and various other reasons.
Dancers that used to dance might dance again. Your job if you choose to accept it: Contact all those dancers on previous membership lists whom you have not seen in a long time. Dancers lose touch with the club if no one keeps in touch with them.
In Cincinnati, dancers have benefited from a Rusty Hinges Workshop. In the process of contacting people about a club anniversary dance, a notice was sent asking if anyone was interested in a brush-up workshop. Old membership list were solicited for this undertaking. Experienced dancers returning to our activity most times do not need to start back in a beginners class.
A great teacher, Jerry Helt, was selected to review all the calls and work on any trouble spots. The workshop was originally slated for 15 weeks and has been ongoing for four years. Each year dancers take the opportunity to brush- up and get reintroduced to the fun and fellowship.
Not only can past dancers benefit from this program so can new graduates and regular dancers who wish to gain more floor time.
For experienced dancers wishing to come back to the greatest activity on Earth.
