we're all in it together
trad fiddle tunes
all are welcome
no lessons required
individual expression in a group context
move to music
everyone works to make it happen
every dancer matters

Subject: [Organizers] Word cloud words for a contra poster???
Hi fellow organizers :)
In Ottawa, we're working on a new poster ... the kind you put up around town to try to attract to people who have never heard about contra before. Yes, not nearly as effective as word of mouth but we'd like to give it good shot!
The thing we're struggling with is how to communicate what contra dance is in a way that will grab the uninitiated. This was raised by Marie-Michelle on the list earlier this year... ... 'what's the elevator pitch'????
Our current plan is to create a word cloud somewhat like this:
We're looking for words to populate the cloud, mostly wanting to avoid unfamiliar words (e.g., many of the figures etc) but instead go for words that really sell the experience and that would attract brand new people.
Things like... community, super fun, great exercise, live music....
Any ideas for words you find sell the experience???? ???
Has anyone made a contra word cloud before????
Emily in Ottawa
