Contra Dance Admission Survey

December 28th, 2017
contra  [html]
I looked over all the dances I have listed on trycontra.com to see what the range of prices dances are charging is. [1] I got prices for 287 dances:

  • Average was $9.06.
  • 221 dances (77%) offered some sort of discount.

  • The most common discounts were to students (172, 60%) and members of the organization (91, 32%).

  • 53 dances (18%) offered a "youth" discount, but they varied wildly in their definition of "youth", from "13 and under" to "35 and under".

  • 23 dances (8%) used a sliding scale. Here's the range:

Here is the raw data: google sheets.

(I was initially interested in this because I'm trying to figure out what I think BIDA should do for pricing. National numbers aren't actually that helpful for this, but I decided to figure them out anyway.)


[1] Methodology Notes:

  • I ignored free dances and ones where I couldn't find a price on their website.
  • I put sliding scale dances at their midpoint, rounded down to the nearest dollar.

One Night Ultimate Werewolf

I really like One Night Ultimate Werewolf (ONUW), and recommend trying it out. The Daybreak expansion is also good (but I’d skip the later games in the series). App For those who’ve played a lot and wish the night took 20 seconds rather than a few minutes…
