Headline: Choosing a New Location to Frolic!
It's official: the Kingston building has been sold, and it appears that we won't be renting from the new owners.
Therefore, we need a new new space - pronto! - and have narrowed the search down to 2 locations:
The Center for Creative Education dance studio on Railroad Avenue in Kingston, and
The Marbletown Multi-Arts space on Main Street in Stone Ridge
We've put up a survey to help gather information from the Frolic community to help the Frolic's Leadership Council decide which venue to rent:
Choosing the Winter Spring Frolic Location
The Frolic Council is meeting - hopefully Monday night 1/19/2015, to decide where to move, so please FILL OUT THIS SURVEY IMMEDIATLY if you can. After the decision is made for Feb/Mar/April, comments will still be recorded and considered, but for future bookings in the Fall.
Winter 2015: One Frolic Per Month
One new Frolic logo idea
For the Frolic, reflecting on the past year and our 22 year history, takes time and careful thought. We are grateful for the joys created and community shared over these many years, and also challenged by a shrinking volunteer pool and overall decline in dancer attendance.
It is in the spirit of community and acknowledging our gifts, needs, and volunteer resources, we have decided to concentrate our energies into a single monthly dance event instead of two, for the winter / spring 2015 season.
We hope this decision allows our community space for additional private gatherings in which to brainstorm, re-vision, and redesign our public offerings to better harness all that we are, and to better support our surrounding communities, so that the Frolic again shines as a glowing, growing, invigorating place to thrive.
In the interest of better knowing our community's needs and gathering opinions beyond the council meeting champions, we've created a SURVEY for feedback from the greater community. Over a dozen people have submitted so far, but we'd really love to know what YOUR experiences are, your needs, your preferences, so please fill one out.
After taking the survey, join the discussion on The Frolic's facebook group, if you'd like to join us there.
The Frolic also has a Twitter account -- @The_FrolicHV -- so stay informed and spread the word --
