My husband and I have tickets to hear Cajun/Zydeco music there this weekend, and just received an e-invite to learn Zydeco dancing at a free pre-performance session. Easy-to-organize and a great way to build interest and community, at little cost or effort.
Such add-ons are another potent arrow in Peak Perfs' community-building quiver, complementing its frequent pre- or post-performance discussions which are often held online to extend the opportunity to those who couldn't make the show.
If they keep it up, we may buy all-season tickets next year. It's nice to be courted and engaged.
