THANK YOU for your loyalty. PROJECT80 wall additions and RENT INCREASE effective October 1, 2018

Dear Valued Instructor/Specialist and Students of The Continental Dance Club,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your patronage of The Continental. I am very proud of the community of dance and art that the Torner family has built here over the past 26 years, membership free. (If it has been awhile since you came to the studio, you will notice many new special moments of our history captured on our Project80 feature wall of fame– perhaps there’s a photo of you there too!)

I am writing to let you know about an increase to our studio rental rates which will take effect on October 1st, 2018 to accommodate additional costs for the studio.

The basic rate for rehearsals/lessons will be $15 for 45 minutes or $20 for 60 minutes. This applies to one instructor and up to 2 students.

Please see complete details of the revised pricing, as well as our policies, attached to this letter.

Of note, this is the first increase we have made since 2013. And as always, the rates are inclusive of HST.

In addition, I wanted to let you know we are finalizing the implementation of a new sign-in system designed to enhance our community and security at the studio. We will send a separate letter about this shortly.

Thank you once again for being a part of The Continental Dance Club community. We appreciate your cooperation with these changes and look forward to the continuing opportunity to serve you.

Yours in dance,

Brian Torner
