Since 1974, Round Hill Country Dances has provided a tradition of community fun, a place where all generations and people from all walks of life can join together for a wholesome, vigorous and historic form of entertainment. Newcomers are always welcome and beginners mingle with experienced dancers each month.
However, the donations at the door don't always cover our expenses. Here's what RHCD needs in order to put on the cost of the dance each month:
$ 100 to rent the hall for the evening
$ 75 to hire the caller
$ 225 to hire the band
$ 10 for affiliate membership in the Country Dance and Song Society (CDSS)
$ 50 to provide liability insurance offered through CDSS
$ 15 to host the website and roundhill.net domain
$ 25 for Meetup and other publicity
At the general admission rate, we need 42 dancers in the hall in order to break even. We are fortunate to have so many generous dancers who donate their change at the admissions table to help us remain solvent. When you check-in at the admissions table, please consider contributing what you feel the dance is worth so that this rich, long-standing tradition will continue in lower Fairfield County.
We are fortunate to have a dedicated group of volunteers who help run the dance. If you would like to contribute your time or expertise, we are always looking for help with staffing the admissions table, setting up sound equipment, arranging refreshments, and cleaning up the hall. Please contact Oliver Gaffney at gaffero@gmail,com or ask at the dance!
