Ouch! Since we are not paying people to come and dance, if it isn't
fun of course the numbers will decrease. Admittedly, when the numbers
get too small, say, less than a membership of about sixteen, it almost
becomes an obligation for members to attend, and this *can* affect
the spirit of the class. But it *has* to be fun, or it is nothing.
