Just listening? We understand that some people may not be dancers, or may love to dance but be sidelined by injury or aging bodies, but still be into the music and the dance community. But it costs money to bring in nationally known musicians and rent the hall, even if nobody dances. So our policy is that if you are just there to listen, you can get in for the student rate (except of course for the Sunday Concert, where full admission still applies).
