Great ideas guys, I'll check out the CDSS information, most of this is stuff
we've heard before and holding a dance on campus is a bit more than we can
handle.  the sites are great and so are the suggestions, but I really am
looking for a "hook" on a poster...like Michale Ludgate's "Support Live
Music, Go Contra Dancing"...but I'm not sure that will work either.  I've
seen "turn off the TV...dance!"  A night of aerobics... and some other
things, that's really what I'm looking for.  Trying to hold dances on campus
is great, but you need to have a person or group on campus that will sponsor
the dance etc, and that's almost  like starting a whole new dance series
(dont' really have time or resources to do this), our dance is readily
excessible to almost all the campuses that have dorms, most of the colleges
are "comuter" colleges with day campuses and some of them (mostly in the
city or what is considered the city) have campus housing.  All are on bus
routes and our dance is in the heart of the "cool" section of town.  Most
young adults know about our area and the shops restaurants and bars.

So, as you see, it's not so much getting individuals to view contra dancing
or host a dance but just to get the option out there, visible, so that some
might try it and help spread the word.

And then, I need an artist to create the poster.....

Thanks again guys!
