Although HATDS is in good financial shape and we currently don't have any dance-related expenses such as hall rent, we do have of up to $1500 annually that are normally covered by membership dues.
- Equipment storage ($60 a month, $720 annually). The storage unit contains sound equipment, water coolers, door supplies, large fans, Bayou Bedlam supplies, etc.
- CDSS Affiliate Membership ($100 annually)
- P.O. Box rental ($130 annually)
- Insurance ($635 annually, although a rebate or a lower rate is possible while we're not dancing)
If you wish, you can make a donation to help defer those expenses. A donation can be in any amount, but if you are a member and would like to donate what you would have paid in dues, here are the rates:
|Student 18 through 25||$10.00|
|Senior Household (one member 65+)||$15.00|
If you are not a member, may we suggest that you join HATDS instead?
We use PayPal but you don't need an account; just use a credit card.
You can also support HATDS through the AmazonSmile program.
However, Amazon donates only 0.5% of eligible purchases to HATDS—that’s only $0.50 for every $100 spent—so please use AmazonSmile to supplement but not replace direct donations. Thanks!
