As long as they walk off with a positive impression - Just because they do
not join up immediately, doesn't mean that they cannot / will not return at
some stage in their lives - if they go away with a negative impression you
have lost them forever.
In business we have Target groups, potential customers and customers - it is
no different in dancing - you also have old customers, and they are the
easiest to convert to a sale - how many groups actually keep in contact with
the dancers that are not returning to a) find out why they are not there any
more, and b) Would they not like to return?
Sorry probably preaching here - but until people are 6 feet under, they are
still potential dancers.
