Minutes, July 12,2016Members present:
We decided that at each dance, we will try to obtain a rough count of new and experienced dancers. This will be done by a caller or other available person at mid dance, using a show of hands, and is not to be added to the workload of those working the door.It was formally decided that we will terminate the use of "get in free" coupons.
There was some discussion of using meetup groups as a way to bring in more dancers.It was formally decided to take no other actions (such as raising prices) for six months, while we see how things are going.
"Our mission is to encourage the growth and development of traditional music and dance in the South Carolina Midlands. We do this by hosting contradances and live music events; by building community through teaching and demonstration of traditional dance forms; and by promoting events in the Columbia area."We briefly discussed out summer schedule.
The tabled (deferred) agenda items are:
Aaron, contra dance video
Links to dance videos on website (Tims idea)
Posting our dances on dance related facebook sites (Poonam)
Using meetup groups (although we discussed those today somewhat)
Midlands Gives (Join as a promotional opportunity, Connie)
