Hello Contra Dancers:
Researchers Jonathan Sivier and Jan Buhrmann are currently conducting a
study on contra dance, in preparation for developing an article that
will introduce contra dancing to a wider audience. Their goal for this
article is to help promote the benefits of this form of dance to those
who aren’t currently familiar with it.
They would like to gather information from as many dancers around the
country as possible, and be able to compare the experiences and dynamics
of contra dancers in different parts of the country. They would greatly
appreciate your participation in a survey on contra dance that asks you
to share your thoughts, feelings, and experiences with contra dancing.
This survey is anonymous, and will only take a few minutes to fill out.
