Winter 2014 Lessons

Happy New Year from UMSwing! And with a new year comes new UMSwing lessons and events.

On behalf of the UMSwing Executive Committee, I’d like to thank everyone who has participated in UMSwing activities over the past year. We’ve especially appreciated your support and patience during our partnership with Recreation Services to offer swing dancing at the University of Manitoba. While we have enjoyed partaking in Recreation Services programming and the use of their facilities, from here onwards the UMSwing Executive Committee has decided to run our swing dance lessons and practices independently.

What does this mean for you, as a member?
- Lessons and practices will no longer be held in the studios of Frank Kennedy Centre. Instead, they will take place in other spaces around campus.

- UMSwing will be in charge of your membership information.

- Membership fees will be set and collected by the UMSwing Executive Committee. UMSwing is a non-profit organization, so prices are meant to cover the cost of an activity, and any excess revenue is cycled back into the club.

Essentially, by returning to running lessons and practices independently it cuts out a middle man in the operation. This autonomous control over our swing dance programming will allow the Executive Committee to make decisions more effectively and in accordance to our deadlines and goals.

This is a big change coming into play for the Winter 2014 term, so if you have questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us at umswing@gmail.com, or check out our website (umswing.ca).

Thank you once again for your support of UMSwing, and we hope to see you out on the dance floor soon. Keep your calendars open on Friday, January 17, which will be our Winter Term Open House!
