We four Puttin' On the Dance conference planners have a lot going on these
days, from planning the program to receiving registrations. We're very
excited, and will tell you more details soon.
Speaking of soon... The *Early Bird Deadline* is coming up *very *soon!
All Early Bird rates are in effect for registrations *postmarked by
September 1*. Send in your registration
the end of the month to take advantage of the discounts.
We have great news on the *Scholarship* front. Both the regional *New
England Folk Festival Association *(www.neffa.org) and Maine's music and
dance group, *DownEast Friends of the Folk Arts* (www.deffa.org
provided grants for our scholarship fund. *Thank you *NEFFA
<http://www.neffa.org/>& DEFFA <http://www.deffa.org/>! If scholarship
support would help you attend the conference, send us your completed
application <http://www.puttinonthedance.org/register/scholarships/> when
you register <http://www.puttinonthedance.org/register/>.
We updated the posters on the Fund your Attendance
<http://www.puttinonthedance.org/register/fund-your-attendance/> page of the
website, to reflect this additional support. "What's the Fund Your
Attendance page?!?" you ask. It offers a whole lot of interesting and
useful ways your dance series can pay for the conference. And the posters
are to help when you...*Ask for donations from your dancers & performers!*
(Just one of the *many *handy tips on the "Fund Your Attendance" page!)
Let us know if you have any questions, and see you in November!
