CCD Elections 2016
Update: By the 10/08/16 deadline we had received three nominations for the Steering Committee: Maggie Bessent, Kevin Liske, and Dan Sandler.
We had also received one nomination for the Band Selection Committee: Deanna Palumbo
Since we ended up receiving exactly as many nominations for each committee as we have available spaces (3 in the Steering Committee and 1 in the Band Selection Committee), this slate will be confirmed through a vote by acclamation at the dance on Friday 10/21.

Policies: Loved Ones at the Dance
- Children are welcome to dance with us! For the safety of all, children may not be in the dance hall itself unless they are actually participating in the dance. Children in the lobby and hallways must be capable of behaving appropriately and parents are responsible for their children's behavior (and for their misbehavior).
- Experiencing an allergy or phobia attack can really put a damper on a dancer's evening so please leave your animal companions at home. You may want to show them a YouTube clip or the contra dance instruction DVD we have available though (see below) so they know what you are up to when you're gone.
Lights, Camera, Action!
