ACCOMMODATIONS

Where:
Clare Hall Residence (beside where we are dancing)

Cost:
$65 (shared bathroom with next room)
$80 (private bathroom)

Contact: 
519.858.5150 (inquiries only - please use the online link for booking)

Info:
http://brescia.uwo.ca/life/residence/

Each room has one queen-sized bed and sink with over sized mirror.
Bathroom is shared with one other room if $65 rate is chosen.
Your room rate is $80 if you chose to have your own bathroom.

HOW TO BOOK YOUR ROOM ONLINE

There is an option on the online registration to select "ROOM TYPE". If a guest wants to share a bathroom with another, they would select the 2 bedroom option for $130/night.

In the "SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS" they would write in who the other person is they are sharing with. At time of check in, the payment can be processed as $130 to one person (if covering for both), or it can be split on separate invoices for $65 +HST/each.

Once registered, the booker will receive a confirmation email within 48 hrs with the actual rate. If they forgot to mention at time of registration that they are sharing costs and with whom, they can now provide that info.

It is not Brescia's job to match people so that you get the shared rate. This must be done by YOU. If you do not specify who you are sharing with, then you risk being billed at the full rate of $130.

Oh the after-party! It takes on a life of it’s own…never to be duplicated (thank goodness). This gathering has become part of the Nia Palooza experience. And with our tag line “Freedom to be Me”… what a better extension of the days activities? We can’t think of one to be honest.

So…What’s with the Red Bra you ask?

A few years ago a particular red bra became this hot item to be worn over what one was already wearing. It got some attention and we all shared some great laughs.

We thought perhaps we could put this fun to a good cause. So, we have decided to do a little fundraiser. We would love and appreciate bra donations! New bras will be collected, so we can donate them (excluding THE red bra of course) to a local women’s shelter. Buying a new bra is not often in their budget….and ladies….we all know how a new bra makes us feel….right?

So, let’s do this. Bring a new bra or two and toss them into the red bin in by the registration. We’ll make sure they are delivered with love & kindness from the dancing community.
