Hi fellow Shared Weight dance organizers,
I'm very excited to announce a greatly expanded CDSS Resource Portal!
You may remember that CDSS launched a Resource Portal for organizers back
in Fall 2018. The organizer section has since been updated and there are new
sections for dance musicians, callers, song leaders, educators ritual
dancers, and others!
The goal of the CDSS Resource Portal it to support you and others who take
on valuable leadership roles in traditional dance, music and song
communities. The Portal does this by linking to many of the very best
resources available for callers, educators, organizers, singers, ritual
dancers, educators, dance musicians, and more. There are hundreds of
resources organized by topic as well as links on how to connect with others
online or at in-person gatherings.
Check out the Portal here: https://www.cdss.org/resources/resource-portal
The Portal is only a great as the resources that are shared by the
community. We are looking to add even more resources and we really
appreciate resources created by members of our network (including you!).
If you know of resources that should be added, please suggest them here:
If you have follow-up questions for me regarding the portal, please email
portal(a)cdss.org rather than the listserv. Note that I likely won't be able
to respond for a few weeks but do look forward to touching base.
Also - If you haven't already, you may want to join CDSS's free quarterly
e-blast for organizers.
