Printable versions of the Calendar will be distributed monthly as E-mail attachments to Club and Regional Reps, and to anyone else interested in receiving them. Please contact the Webmaster to put yourself on the distribution list.

If you supply a MS Word Document, .pdf or .jpg version of the 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 should therefore print a copy for their clubs, and spread the word about this on-line version.
(2) To help avoid conflicts between dances. Please try not to schedule your dance on a date already selected, especially if the scheduled dance is listed in bold type. Bold type listings are club Special Dances.
