2017 Annual Appeal:
Our World Needs More of This!

Dear CDSS Friends,

As 2017 draws to a close, I know that many of you, like me, will be reflecting on the year, on the blessings in your lives, and on what you’ve put into the world.

Before the year-end shuffle begins, I invite you to pause for a moment and think about the ways in which your life has been made sweeter by raising your voice in song, making music with others, and connecting with friends on the dance floor. And I urge you to think about how vitally important it is for us all to invest in the type of future we want to see. I believe that our world needs more of this! More twirling and turning! More rousing choruses! More hands working to make music! More creative JOY!

Bary Jeff CAM2017 69 smPhoto by Jeff BaryCDSS is dedicated to providing the resources, support, and connections that nurture local dance communities all across North America. Whether through 
insurance coverage, training for dance organizers, historic and academic 
resources in our e-library, grant funding to help new ideas take shape, or immersion experiences at camp, CDSS is here to keep the traditions you love going strong.

Your membership and financial support are what make it all possible. So if you’ve experienced the joy of connecting through traditional dance, music and song, and if you believe — as I believe — in the compounding goodness they create in the world, then make your end-of-year contribution today. We can’t do it without you.

Warmest wishes,


Katy German
Executive Director
