Price Increase Starting April 1st

Updated: Mar 19, 2018

Hello Om Fusion Community,


Starting April 1, 2018, the new sliding scale will be $9 - $15 and the beginner 30 minute lesson is free.


Here’s how we got there.


In July 2017, our rent was raised. We needed to adjust our price accordingly, so we increased the price from $7 for the dance and $5 for the lesson to $9 for both the dance and the lesson. We wanted to honor our commitment to providing dance education at our event by providing it for free, while the base price increase would offset our additional rent expenses.

The announcement was handled poorly on my part and many were affected by the $2 increase. The community suggested going to a sliding scale in the hopes that people who had the means would offset those who would otherwise not be able to afford to go.


In October 2017, we decided to go to a sliding scale of $7 - $15 hoping we could meet the financial needs of the dance while continuing to keep it accessible. Unfortunately The venue is not financially sustainable at the current price structure.


We recently sent out a survey, as we were considering cheaper venues to keep things affordable. The feedback we received verbally, in the feedback box, and via the survey showed that people want the dance to continue in its current space, Om Culture in Wallingford.


So in order to keep the dance in the same venue, we need to adjust our rates.


Starting April 1, 2018, the new sliding scale will be $9 - $15 and the beginner 30 minute lesson is free.


If you are unable to pay the new rate, please inquire as to volunteer opportunities. Omfusionseattle.com


In Love and Dance,
