NOTICE #2:  Community Meeting Decisions


Limited Income Admission - As a result of the community meeting held on March 16, admission pricing for seniors has been eliminated and replaced with provisions for individuals of limited income. 


Admission prices will normally be $8 for regular Wednesday dances [$5 to $8 for students and dancers with limited income], and $10 for regular Saturday dances [$5 to $10 for students and dancers with limited income].  Exceptions for special dances will be shown on the full schedule or special flyers.


These policy changes are being made in an effort to help increase attendance at PCD, particularly by young people, as well as helping to balance and improve PCD's financials.


Gender Roles - Another topic addressed at the meeting is that PCD is also hoping to create a more gender-neutral environment where people consider dancing both roles, which is becoming very popular among young dancers and in other dance communities. More on Dance Roles from the PCD Executive Committee.
