I've seen a lot more offers coming round recently on email from various ceroc venues & independent venues, be they money off, 2 venues a week for discounted price, BOGO 1/2 price, etc. Many of them seem to be trying to get dancers to up their frequency of dancing, but wonder whether they actually work? Also, I'm also wondering how much of it is a response to lower numbers of dancers due to the credit crunch and warmer weather recently.

From my point of view I dance 3x a week anyway, so it would be a bonus to get a discount for somewhere I already dance. It may encourage me to try a new venue if it didn't mean extra travelling over and above what I'd usually do.

So what you do think - do you think they work? Have you changed the amount you dance in the last year compared to previously?
