We have great respect for the dancers who have been in the scene
for a long time. After a certain point, your contribution to the
scene is invaluable. That's why we are implementing a policy for
the small group of people we call our Veteran Dinosaurs
What's a Veteran Dinosaur? Someone who fulfills all
Dancing Lindy Hop or Blues
on a regular basis for at least 10 years.
In this case, "regular basis" means dancing once a week. If you took a
break at some point, that's fine, but it doesn't count towards your ten years.
- Ten years or more of:
- ..Lindy Hop and/or Blues
- ..once or more a week
We know that this is a small group of people, but if you stick with
it, then some day this will be you.
And if this IS
you, then you get into our venue for FREE
for our first year.
Just to clarify - it needs to be on a regular basis, so if you were dancing
10 years ago but only once a month or so, or if you were dancing every night
and then took a break for a year or so, then you don't qualify (yet!).
And that "once or more a week" means we want you to count up the number of weeks
you were dancing once or more - it is not an average, so five times a week for 2
years and then no dancing for 8 years does not count (Though it's fantastic!)
If you qualify, you need to send us a mail
that you have been dancing Lindy and/or Blues
on a weekly basis
for at least 10 years
! If you miss any part of those requirements,
your mail will be ignored. Whether you're a Veteran Dinosaur
not, thanks for being a part of our community!
Also note that it can sometimes take a couple of days to get on our guest
list, so mailing us on Saturday is probably too late for that week.
