The annual fee for the “Maxis”, i.e. the big ones, the “Dancing Angels” will increase significantly.
Reason: in future they will have to pay for their costumes themselves.
- Although there were no new elections in the house at the annual general meeting of the Dancing Angels on Friday in the Huber restaurant, there were still important points to discuss.
In addition to an urgently needed amendment to the statutes, things could soon change significantly financially for the Maxis, i.e. the big ones in the dance club.
The club can no longer shoulder everything.
The association is basically in a good position: around 8,700 euros are currently in the cash register, and the number of members - currently 125 - has not collapsed despite the pandemic. But there is a problem that, according to chairman Jens-Uwe Klein, is actually nothing new. The tailoring work for the Maxis amounts to around 150 euros per costume. If these costs were borne entirely by the association in the past, Klein suggested that these costs should now be passed on to those affected. Means: The Maxis should pay for the costume production themselves in the future.
Currently, the membership fee for the Dancing Angels is 25 euros per year plus 60 euros for the dancers - the 60 euros are spent on fabrics, for example.
Maxis could therefore have to shell out an annual fee of 235 euros in the future.
However, according to Klein, there is of course the possibility of approaching him as chairman if the additional costs cannot be borne.
"We will then find a solution," emphasized Klein.
What would also be conceivable for him: Covering the tailoring costs through a sponsor or, for example, through the Maxis' own contribution, such as through their own stand at the Christmas market.
According to Klein, there are many possibilities.
In any case, Klein would like to avoid a slump in the club's coffers due to these costs, which can amount to more than 4000 euros a year. Because there are enough financial expenses in the house: new club clothing such as the yellow training vests or a planned club outing. Because it had become financially tight in the past, Klein had to “hit the brakes” - he didn't want to experience that again after being sucked in by himself. However, it is also important to the chairman that no member leaves the association because of these 150 euros. However, how the exemptions will look then and who could benefit from them was not decided on Friday.
On the other hand, the new problem with the old association statutes was clearly clarified at the annual general meeting. According to the tax office, this must urgently be improved in order not to lose its non-profit status. In fact, it is a question of some unclear wording which, in the worst case, could even have led to the association being dissolved. So the improvement was decided unanimously in a swift way.
Klein attested a great achievement to the Parents for Children initiative, which donated 3700 euros to the Dancing Angels.
"It was very surprising for me," said Klein, who received the check from the initiative chairman Daniela Prummer.
Klein praised the huge commitment of parents for children and emphasized that he knew very well how “fragmented” the association had collected this money.
Such donations ensure that children of the financially weaker can also take part in the Dancing Angels.
Because although in 2021 “there was actually nothing going on” for the dance club, the dance fans are looking very positively into the future.
On November 20, they want to get started with the show dance premiere for the 2021/22 season.
"We all assume that we will then be able to dance again!" Says Klein.
