This site is maintained on an occasional basis. It is neither exhaustive nor necessarily accurate. Dance groups come and go, and websites come and go, and some are maintained more regularly than others. Information is often old, and always chancy. Users are advised to try to confirm the existence, time and place of any given dance before undertaking long trips or otherwise risking disappointment. Click on the dances and other sites to see what we have found, and then email or call the dance organizers for current information. If a heading doesn’t work at all, it may be that we have no current information to display.
