I’m sure you won’t be surprised to hear that the last 18 months have been tough! We’ve not been able to connect in the same way with our dance family and friends and our industry has been impacted significantly, both with a loss of dancers who have moved onto other things, but also with many organisations struggling to continue as a going concern.
We are a very small company with few large overheads, so we’ve managed to weather the pandemic well but this year’s Worlds will impact us financially due to the expected reduction in numbers because of international travel restrictions , yet we are 100% going ahead unless the government tells us otherwise!
We know some of our dancers will have the means and desire to help during this time, so we are introducing a new scheme where you can advance your entry fees and get some exciting additional benefits! Introducing the…
WDM Ambassador Membership
The WDM Ambassador card is a 2-year membership that brings a variety of benefits to the holder, including free access to all World Dance Masters hosted events. This card is limited to 30 individuals only.
The membership year starts on 1st September 2021 and ends on 31 August 2023 and is available to apply for now.
This card provides:
Free full access ticket to World Dance Masters in Blackpool for 2 years (2022/2023 or 2023/2024 if you already have a ticket for 2022), including priority entry to the ballrooms each day, an invitation to a special champagne celebration with the WDM Team during the event, and early access to the table reservation service at a reduced cost of 50% (total value £350 over 2 years).
Free full access ticket to European Dance Masters in Ireland for 2021, 2022, and 2023 (total value £195 over 2 years).
Free entry to all World Dance Masters organised qualifying events (value £15 per event).
An annual credit of £40 to use towards World Dance Masters merchandise.
An annual private lesson with a World Dance Masters Judge for one dancer.
The value of the membership per year is between £285 for a spectator who attends our bigger events and £420 for a competitor who attends several qualifying events plus our big championships. With the 2-year membership costing £500, that’s up to a £340 saving on paying for each pass or item individually.
Most importantly to us, you’ll also be supporting our team by helping us deliver on our events in a period where demand will be slowly re-built after the pandemic. Your direct investment will ensure World Dance Masters continues to thrive and deliver line dance events that are unparalleled in value and professionalism.
We know this membership won’t be for everyone and that many people won’t be able to commit to being a WDM Ambassador even if they wanted to, which we totally understand. Your support by joining us online, attending our events when you can, or just supporting your fellow dancers through our Facebook Page is also more than welcome.
For those that might want to offer their support in another way, we’ll be offering a prize draw in June where you can win one of these fantastic cards, worth up to £840!
Thanks to each and every one of you for how you support World Dance Masters through the good and tough times.
