Virtual Classes from Pacific Ballroom Dance

Dear Dancin' Friends,


I have a four-pronged business:
I DJ for dances, I teach dances, I put on dances, and I advertise dances. It's all dance-dependent. But lately, the tines of my fork have been breaking off.

Many people think that my main work is DJing. Even five years ago that was true, but gradually the main work I do for a living has shifted to advertising. For many years I advertised social dances in the Dance Calendar for free. Some advertisers were shocked when I started charging (about $2 per event) over ten years ago. The listings dropped from about 140 events to about 30 events. But over the years most of my advertisers came back ... just prior to the pandemic there were 99 dances in the dance calendar.

This week is supposedly the "long email week" which used to contain about a dozen Headliner Ads (such as the single ad you see below) plus a Dance Calendar listing social dances that my 3500+ readers could attend. I always figured that if someday I could no longer DJ (or teach dancing, or put on my own dances) that I would be able to produce income by advertising dances. Now, like so many others in dance-dependent businesses, I find the future uncertain ... but I'm not giving up!
