By Barnes by LYNNE GORDON Side-step shady studios Have you made all your usual New Years resolutions? You are going to read more, learn more about physical fitness, lose weight, stop smoking and learn how to dance. It's that time of year when you are probably eating your' way through a round of parties and family dinners, drinking your way into the winter season and feeling as if you have two left feet at all the dances. Certainly dance lessons can give you a lot of pleasure, es- pecially in the cold weather when a lot of activity moves in- doors. Dancing can be a great release, a way to make friends, avoid loneliness. It all depends on how much you pay for these lessons and what you expect from them. If you go to a commercial dance studio, there are some ex- tra precautions you should take. There is no doubt that 95 per cent of the dance studios are honest but five per cent control the industry in many cities. And some of their tactics in selling can be very shady. Evils of this business lie in the long-term contracts and multiple contracts. Some people are conned into these back-breaking contracts by a smooth salesman or teacher who knows how to use his or her body as a persuader. It can happen the minute you step into one of these studios. You may have answered an ad for an "introductory offer" at. some low price or been told over the telephone that you've just won some free lessons." Watch the techniques of the salesman-teacher. It all seems so innocent when you start to dance, unless you are aware of how each step is carefully planned to make you feel wanted. It's the way the teacher touches you, smiles at you and holds you closely when dancing. In fact, one teacher's manual, or sales manual that I was able to get my hands on, lays out the whole pitch. It spells out, step by step, how the teacher must learn to flatter, pamper and tease a student into a long-term contract. Here are a few of these lines they are pretty typical, with some variations in different studios. One classic pattern in the con game is to get the student to admit how happy he is now that he's found this dance studio. Then the barrage begins "I'm so glad you could come, I enjoy teaching you. Something must have been lacking in your life (all this time you are nodding your head) You won't have to be lone- ly anymore you won't have to sit around while everybody is having fun. Can you put a monetary value on it? Isn't it worth all the money a person can afford to make him happy and receive all these benefits (still nodding your Then isn't a lesson dirt Now all these questions are thrown at you while you are be- ing held very close and the teacher is implying more to come. Then comes the zinger the long-term contract. When this kind of pressure is applied, its even hard to sort out what you are paying for. If it is a package deal, it may include private lessons, prac- tise sessions, group sessions, social sessions. If you ever had it itemized you might find you are paying as much as for a private lesson. And don't think you can get out of the contract once you sign. They are usually non-cancellable, unless you pay a heavy penalty to terminate. Sometimes the studio runs its own financ- ing racket and will convince you to borrow money at a crippling interest rate. The best way for you to pay for your lessons, is pay as you dance. Then no matter where you go, you can't get into trouble with the sharks. Make sure the studio is going to stay in business, that you are getting a qualified teacher for lessons, not another student. Check out the reputation of local studios before you get in- volved. Find a reputable studio, but also check out community centres, your church, or your Y. Or perhaps you can get a group of friends together and have teacher come to your home. DANCING IS FUN Just don't let anyone walk all over you. Copyright 1974, Toronto Sun Syndicate Editor's note: In her Dec. 18 column, Ms. Gordon cited On- tario regulations. In Alberta, there is a four-day (not two, as she cited) cooling-off period in which consumers may cancel contracts of and up.
