Big Band Dances – RSVP’s needed for dances to happen

We have been spoiled over the years by the Big Band Dances.  They have many musicians that come to play, and many travel from out of town for the event. They will be happy to continue if they know there will be enough dancers to enjoy the evening.  So – if you would like to continue to dance to the Big Band, please let them know.

Please RSVP back to us if you are planning to attend our next dance on Saturday, May 4.  Please reply no later than this Sunday evening, April 28. 
Email: danceextras@suddenlink.net
Call: 304-916-0104

Below are the emails from Joyce:

Dear Ballroom Dancers,
> As you probably know, Felice brings in musicians from all over WV, not just Wood County, in order to fill out the Big Band; from Logan, Glenville, Charleston, Clarksburg, Athens OH…   We never know if we will have a good turnout, and at least once a season we have a very small group.  Because preparation setup is a huge job, we are trying a new idea to help us eliminate the low attendance dances.  We ask that you RSVP by email if you will be attending the next dance, to Joyce & Steve when they send out their dance announcement email each month.  If you can’t attend the dance, no need to reply.  Only if we don’t get enough positive replies, will we cancel that dance and notify you in advance of that dance.

We hope this works well for you and for us!  If anyone has ideas to boost attendance, your help would be appreciated.
Thanks for always supporting The Doug Hess Big Band!!

………………………………………………………………………………..

Dear Big Band Ballroom Dancers,
As we explained in our previous email, we need you to RSVP back to us if you are planning to attend our next dance on Saturday, May 4.  Please reply no later than this Sunday evening, April 28. 
Email: danceextras@suddenlink.net
Call: 304-916-0104

No need to reply if you will not be there.  If we have enough attending, the dance is on.  We will notify everyone by email on Monday, April 29, either way.

We are hopeful this will eliminate the dances when there are more musicians than dancers, and will assist Felice in contracting the musicians.
Hope to hear from you all,
Joyce, Steve, and Felice
