First, thank you to everyone who has responded to my initial message
and has taken the survey. I have already received a good number of
responses, and my advising professor and my colleagues are impressed
by the number of responses I have received--a testimony to the spirit
of the contra community.
I would like to re-post the link to the survey on contra
choreographies (see original message below), to allow anyone who
hasn't had a chance yet to take the survey. I will be closing the
survey soon, and want to make sure that I am collecting responses from
as many respondents as I possibly can.
Again, thank you for your indulgence in allowing me to re-post this,
and for your participation--I sincerely appreciate your time!
I am a Ph.D. student in music at Ohio State University, and I am
developing a research project to investigate some aspects of contra
dance choreography. To continue in this project I am asking for your
participation in a survey.
The survey should take about 20 minutes to complete. It does ask that
you recall names of dance choreographies that you have danced, and I
recognize that this may make it more difficult for some of us (myself
included) to fill out such a survey. However, I know that callers are
more likely to be able to recall names of dances, which is why I have
chosen to distribute the survey primarily to callers.
Here is the link to the survey:
