If you're undecided about joining our High Desert Swing Dance Club, because you're not sure we're worth it,
please take the time to consider the following benefits.
Since we are a non-profit organization, ALL of our membership fees and event incomes are used to benefit our dancers and our local community. And, when compared to other dance clubs across the country, we consistently charge members less for our pro-instructor workshops because we don't need to make a profit.
Each year, in March, we offer a Membership Drive and Workshop package consisting of four beginner-level, and four intermediate-level, afternoon dance lessons, one year HDSDC membership, and free entry into our Saturday dance the evening of the workshop - all for only $30. That's a great deal all on its own, without even considering the added member benefits noted below.
Our members get reduced admission to our monthly dances ($5 vs. $10) and our workshops (typically $10 off).
Once a year, we usually offer a free-to-members dinner and dance. Each year we usually also host a few theme dances and, sometimes, a "pot-luck" dinner and dance. We always provide free snack foods, coffee, cups, plates, utensils, etc. at all of our monthly club dances.
We're constantly purchasing new music for our dances, and we're constantly creating new playlists that often include music that our dancers request. Music is the single most important factor at any dance but, of course, we can't please everyone.
We own and maintain two, professional, wireless microphone systems, and two high quality sound systems, that we use at our lessons, dances and workshops.
We keep our dancers informed via our email updates, website, facebook, announcements at our dances, and printed information.
