Get your voice heard FACE to FACE vs Facebook!

We meet once a month to discuss etiquette, issues, concerns, and anything needed to keep awareness of desiring positive, encouraging behavior. We are open to suggestions on topics, guest speakers, etc.

This is FREE to attend and anyone is welcome to attend to share anything on their mind.

*** BEGINNERS & new dancers are highly encouraged to attend - you are the lifeblood of the community and we want you to share with us ***

=== AGENDA === (all times are "ish" except 5:00pm)
5:00pm - Welcome
5:01pm - POSITIVE experiences we had this month

5:10pm - follow up from AUG 30

5:15pm - Topics from attendees OR Aug 30 suggestions:
* "A way to talk about issues here & a process for dealing with them"

* Discussing Etiquette & Floorcraft based on:
*** agree?, disagree?, meh? - additions!

5:45pm - Guest speaker (TBD - suggestions welcome)

NOV 22 / DEC 20


Please note – Although these meetings are going to be held BEFORE The Hep Spot classes and dances, you are in no way expected to stay for The Hep Spot. But we’d love it if you did!

The Hep Spot follows immediately after:
6 - 7 --- Lesson
7 - 10 Dance feat Live Music


We hope this encourages others to start meetings and open discussions to talk face to face about anything at other locations and other times.

A few points to keep in mind:

* As we work to establish this new concept, we recognize that mistakes are likely; we will learn from them so let's be patient with each other as we evolve

* Everyone has their own set of values, beliefs, etc and we want to respect that for everyone

* An agenda will be set before and attempts to obtain topics for discussion in advance (if you are interested in helping pull together the AGENDA, please contact us)

* Hoping to have expert guest speakers on various topics. If we do not have experts we can discuss general overall dance etiquette and other topics brought up. No one is assuming they are experts in some of the more serious issues that may come up and we want to treat those with the utmost respect (if you are an expert in a topic you want to share OR know of experts in an area you think should be discussed, please contact us)

* We want to limit circular discussions which limits productivity so a FACILITATOR will be running the meeting to keep everyone on task (if you have experience running meetings and would like to be involved, please contact us)

* We want to keep a record of our discussions to share with those that cannot attend or to review where we've been and where we are going as these continue (if you are interested in helping to record the notes or video the meeting to post, please contact us)
