The Portal contains a vast range of resources to support traditional dance, music, and song communities throughout North America. It provides separate sections for traditional singers and song organizers, ritual dancers and organizers, dance organizers, callers, dance musicians, educators, and traditional social dancers. We have also included a section on the benefits of our shared traditions, useful in advocacy work and grant applications.
Where do these resources come from? Some were created as part of CDSS initiatives. However, many of them originated from other organizations or individuals. In those instances, we have either linked to the external resource directly or reposted them with permission. Our goal in creating the Portal is to make it easier to find the resources and supports that you need!
Do you know of a resource that we could add? Maybe even something created by your local community or you? Let us know through this form.
