Dear TBDC Friends,
The TBDC memberships for June 2019-May 2020 were extended through December 2020. Then the new dance year is now January-December 2021. As you review your options, please keep in mind that when you miss a TBDC event to travel, to attend a wedding, or to visit relatives, TBDC must still pay the bills for its monthly dance: operating expenses, DJ (at least $250), band ($800-$1100). To support the club throughout the year—even when you can’t attend a dance—please consider joining with pre-paid attendance as a Sustaining, Bronze, Silver, Gold, or Platinum Member. Regular membership is for those who wish to pay at the door at a discount. For Non-Members, Band Event admission is $15/individual or $25/couple at the door; and DJ Event admission is $8/individual at the door.
Because TBDC could not safely host dances in January and February, dues for 2021 have been prorated:
TBDC Membership. Membership is $35 ($70/couple). Admission to monthly Band Event for Members is $8, and DJ Event is $5.
Student Sustaining Membership. Most of our student guests usually can attend no more than eight dances during the dance year. The student who would like to be a Sustaining Member may join TBDC for $25, which includes pre-paid admission to all 2021 dance events.
TBDC Sustaining Membership. To support TBDC’s events, our Sustaining Members prepay for all 2021 dances at a discounted rate: $95 ($190/couple). The Sustaining Member pays nothing at the door!
TBDC Bronze Membership. The dancer who wishes to join TBDC, prepay for all 2021 dances, and make an additional donation is invited to renew as a Bronze Member: $125 ($250/couple). The Bronze Member pays nothing at the door; and, unless one requests otherwise, Bronze Members will be recognized in a monthly newsletter
TBDC Silver Membership. The dancer who wishes to join TBDC, prepay for all 2021 dances, and make a larger donation is invited to renew as a Silver Member: $175 ($350/couple). The Silver Member pays nothing at the door; and, unless one requests otherwise, the Silver Members will be recognized in a monthly newsletter.
TBDC Gold Membership. The Gold Membership is for those who are willing and able to support the club more substantially: $200 ($400/couple). This includes prepaid admission to all 2021 dances. The Gold Member pays nothing at the door; and, unless one requests otherwise, Gold Members will be recognized in a monthly newsletter.
TBDC Platinum Membership. Would you like to pick the theme and the music for a dance? The TBDC Platinum Membership is for you! The Platinum membership is $850, which includes membership and prepaid admission for two people to all 2021 dances, and the opportunity to pick the theme and music for the night, including a Band or a DJ. Note: DJs and bands for 2021 have already been booked; so, the Platinum Member may pick a theme for 2021 or pick both a theme and band for 2022. Platinum Members pay nothing at the door; and, unless one requests otherwise, Platinum Members will be recognized in a monthly newsletter.
Please complete a membership form and submit with your payment. Thank you for your participation and support.
