Lesson Summary DVD Policy
Students who have paid for a lesson will be permitted to make their own video of that lesson during the instructor video summary at the end of the lesson.  Swing ‘n’ Country Dance Club may, on occasion, make video summaries of the Wednesday night lessons available to lesson attendees.  A nominal fee to cover the cost of reproducing and mailing these videos will be collected at the time of order.  These videos will be available only to persons paying for all four weeks of lessons.  Videos will be produced only with approval from the instructor.  If an instructor denys approval for these videos, that denial is final.  Swing ‘n’ Country does not guarantee to make videos of all lessons.  When resources are not available for recording, editing, and reproducing, no video summaries will be made.  These videos are made as a courtesy to our members.  [approved 12/10/2007]

The video summaries are also being made available to persons who have not paid for the full month of lessons.  The price of videos is [approved 4/21/2008]:
