I wrote last week about our new initiative to have a quarterly Helper of the Semester and our first helper to be recognized for his contributions for summer 2008 is David Charing!

David joined Toronto Dance Salsa in 2006 and very quickly moved up the levels and joined the helper group. Since then he has demonstrated an exceptionally warm, giving and helpful personality. He is always ready to assist, whether it is to take on more helper shifts, lend a CD at outings, providing T-shirt slogan ideas, dancing with students in the social and more. I have received many comments from students and instructors about David. He was mentioned several times in the 2008 summer semester feedback and because of all of this David is our first Helper of the Semester!

As well David has given us the slogan that we will be using on our salsa t-shirts that will be coming out shortly. David will be the first person to receive a t-shirt for his contributions. In addition, as Helper of the Semester, David will receive a free TDS class for next semester and a discounted rate for all TDS classes for an entire year.

Make sure you congratulate Dave when you see him!
