Help Us Help You! Take Our Poll!
Since January 19th the SHACK has been offering a number of free classes, workshops and events. We have also offered reasonably prices art, music and theatre classes for kids and teens. Since our spring session ended June 1st we have not gotten as many sign-ups as we had hoped. Now we have just 17 days to make the decision of “Should we stay or should we go?” On June 30th our lease is up and we can’t renew it unless we have students signed up for summer camps, classes and workshops. We did not get our space for free so we have been paying for overhead costs and operational expenses for the last 6 months which can be costly, even in a small but “cozy” space such as ours.
Please take a minute of your time to take our poll and tell us what types of classes you would like to see at the SHACK. Then in the comments tell us if you would actually sign up. AND then please tell us how much you would be willing to pay for these classes. Most similar programs in the area charge between $15-37 a class. We have only been charging $10-15 per class, less than half the competition. We are still willing to offer some free programs, however, we do need to charge for classes to cover our overhead costs and to pay teachers- just like Parks & Rec and other organizations in town do.
Again, unless we have a full roster of students signed up by June 21, just 11 days from now, then, sadly the SHACK will have to close our doors.
So please take our survey! And remember the question: WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE AT THE SHACK? Don’t forget to comment when you’re done!!! Thank you!
