In Memorium: George Snyder
CCD Caller and Tuesday dance organizer George Snyder passed away on Friday, February 17, 2017.
Calling for our dancers was one of the greatest joys of George's life. A memorial and dance at CCC is being planned for March 26 so that we can come together as a community and celebrate his life in the way that George would have enjoyed and appreciated the most.
Details will be shared when they are available
Cards honoring George may be sent to his life partner Peggy Hendrix at 420 Hilldale Dr, Decatur GA 30030.

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!
