This mailing list welcomes organizers and those interested in organizing any form of traditional social dance. This includes contra, English country, traditional squares (e.g., Appalachian, New England, Quebecois, Cape Breton, etc), community/family/barn, ceili, Balfolk, and more!
Our goal is to support each other by:
- Asking and answering questions that are of interest to organizers.
- Discussing issues that come up in our communities.
- Sharing resources that are helpful in organizing dance events.
- Plan and announce organizer gatherings.
We discuss a wide variety of topics – the following are just a few examples to give you a taste!
- Community safety and etiquette
- Financial matters (admission fees, expenses)
- How to increase attendance, including attracting youth
- How to work with bands and callers
