We want to thank the teachers who are eternal students, and who are also encouraging their students to grow by attending workshops.
For you very special teachers — we have the teachers' special: Teachers with 4 students that do the full MassRaqs weekend will get half-off her/his full weekend registration! If 8 of his/her students register, the teacher gets in free to all events included in the pass!
Students should email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of their teacher (should be the same name used by all, so we don't get confused, thanks!) — and we will either invoice the teacher for the discounted rate, or send confirmation for their free registration!
Give back to your devoted teachers and send them to MassRaqs by attending yourself! How awesome is that?!
Last year some of our MassRaqs attendees generously offered to host out of town dancers. We are facilitating this process by keeping a list of potential hosts, and then making these connections available to out of town registrants looking for lodging.
Most dancers coming from out of town will probably want to be here from Friday Sept. 9th through Sunday Sept. 11th, 2011. There may be some slight variation in dates and times, due to flight schedules. The commitment may include helping the dancer with information about transportation to the workshops and shows.
Hosting a dancer is great way to bond over this fantastic weekend! If you are interested and able to host a dancer from another city, please email the MassRaqs team at email@example.com with "Host" in the subject line.
Please include an email and phone number where can we can reach you. We won't share your information without your consent. And thanks for your amazing generosity!
