If you supply a MS Word Document, .pdf or .jpg version of a flyer for your special event, it will be published in the "Dance Flyers" page of this web site. A link to the flyer will be included in the Calendar.

The Calendar serves two purposes:

(1) To keep dancers informed of upcoming events. Club Reps are encouraged to print a copy for their clubs, and spread the word about this on-line version.

(2) To help avoid conflicts between special dances, especially fund-raising specials shown in boldface. Please try not to schedule your special on a date already selected by another club.


As of the above date eleven clubs are dancing on a regular basis. They are listed below.

The current list of club special dances follows. Fund-raising special dances appear in boldface.
