Regarding whether newish dancers can/should attend dance weekends, I think
the experience is generally very strong (top callers, top bands, surrounded
by competent to great dancers). Best experience if they've attended one or
two regular dances, but I've seen people thrive with a weekend experience
as their very first time. I've also seen people overwhelmed by the
experience. Hard to tell ahead of time. And as Mac points out, the price
can be a disincentive or at least a challenge.

Interesting suggestion - we have not tried this
because weekend events are
not usually targeted at new dancers. I would think the weekend prices
would be too much for someone who just wants to try it out.
Do you offer special rates for those who want to try it out ( we do let
anyone who comes by try it for free for a dance or 2)
