POTD2 programming is in high gear!
We’re gathering resources for lots of relevant workshops, presentations, and discussions to choose from, with categories ranging from nuts-and-bolts how to’s, to working with bands and callers, to community development ideas, and all sorts in between.

Our survey and early registration results tell us these are the must haves:

  • problem behaviours / difficulties on the dance floor
  • increasing attendance beyond getting new people in the door
  • marketing your dance
  • creating and sustaining a strong volunteer base
  • attracting younger dancers
  • logistical, financial and legal issues on both sides of the border

And that’s only the beginning!

Check out the Past POTDs archive to see the sessions from 2011.

Sesssion leaders = conferees who have skill and expertise in particular aspects of running a dance series. The info collected from our program survey and from early registration forms is key in identifying some of these folks. We are currently in the process of examining this valuable input and more to put together another super Puttin’ On the Dance conference program.
