CDSS News Issues

 

The CDSS News is a print publication and, in a slightly shorter format, an online publication. Below are articles and other material from the most recent issues. We hope you find it informative, thought-provoking, and entertaining. Please contact us if you have comments or questions.

Our Upcoming Events calendar of workshops, balls, special events, weeks, and weekends throughout North America, is only available online. There is no charge for a simple listing (date, event name, town/state, sponsoring group's name, contact info); send to events@cdss.org.

To submit letters, articles, dances, tunes and songs for possible publication, send to news@cdss.org. Information about advertising (print edition only) is here. To receive the printed newsletter as a benefit of CDSS membership, join here.

Errata

An ad for the 2018 Binghamton (NY) Ball & Sunday Brunch was slated to run in the Winter 2017-2018 issue but was unintentionally left out. Please see the ad here. We apologize most sincerely for this error.

There were three ads in the issue that were submitted to CDSS with inadvertent errors. Though it is not our practice to proofread submitted ads, we apologize for not catching these mistakes before press time.

In the printed issue, Melanie Axel-Lute's name was incorrectly printed as Melanie Axel-Lute Becket and the dance formation for each dance was omitted. The PDF of her dances has been corrected and is linked above. We sincerely apologize for the error.
