Purpose

The purpose of this policy is to establish expectations for attendees of MWCSC dance events and document miscellaneous practices regarding dance events.

Conduct

MWCSC strives to make its dance events a safe and comfortable space for all attendees. Attendees of MWCSC dance events are expected to show respect to other attendees and act with good conduct.

Any misconduct should be reported to a board member in accordance with the misconduct policy and club bylaws.

Price

The board may establish the price of events and times after which admission to the dance is free.

Unless otherwise specified, dance events are free after registration/check-in is closed.

Refunds

For weekly and monthly dances, refunds should be rare. If you have a reason for a refund, find a board member to make your case. A decision will be made at that time.

For any event that has early registration, refunds will be issued for any reason up to the early registration deadline. Any refund requests after the registration are at the discretion of the board. In either case, contact the MWCSC board to request the refund. 

Swing Buck Usage

Swing Bucks may be used without exception for weekly dances, monthly dances, and regular lesson series.

Unless otherwise specified, Swing Bucks may be used for special events. Any special event that does not accept Swing Bucks will be clearly advertised as such.

Swing Bucks may not be used for membership dues.

Swing Bucks have no expiration date.

More details on Swing Bucks can be found in the volunteer rewards policy.

Bystanders

A bystander is a person who specifically comes to an MWCSC dance event, but will not dance. Bystanders get in free to social dances but should pay if they are attending the workshop. Bystanders must check in.

Punch Cards

Dancers may get punch cards for free admission to dance events. For instance, Beginner 1 series students get a card with 5 punches after a few weeks in the series.

A weekly dance costs one punch and a monthly dance costs 2 punches. Any special events will be clearly advertised whether or not it accepts punches and how punches apply to discounts.

Dancers must check-in and present the punch card for free admission. Punch cards expire after 1 year.

Shoes

To protect dance floors and other dancers, attendees should wear appropriate and clean footwear when on dance floors. Attendees do not need to wear specific dance shoes, but must wear clean, non-marking shoes that aren’t worn outside, or else dance in socks.

Any attendee who wears inappropriate shoes will be asked to remove them. Attendees who continually refuse may be asked to leave the dance without a refund.

Venue/Environment

Attendees should not adjust sound levels, lighting levels, or temperature controls of a venue. Attendees should speak with a board member or event director to see about having these adjusted.
