As part of the CDSS mission, we support leadership development across North America. Since 2006, we have co-sponsored conferences in these regions of the U.S.: Southwest, Midwest, Northeast, Southeast, and Northwest. The content has been designed in collaboration with regional organizers to provide resources for meeting the unique needs of each region. These exciting events have had far-reaching and long-lasting effects, revitalizing music and dance communities from coast to coast.

The Puttin' On the Dance 2: Hands Across the Border conference in Ottawa, Ontario, on March 20-22 was a HUGE success! See the listing below for links to the conference archives and photos from the event.
