Special notice:

This year, we’re encouraging our community members to add
five or ten or twenty dollars to the registration fee, with
the proceeds to be divided between the Earthdance Building
Fund, Contact Quarterly. These are two institutions that
are critical to the improvisational dance
community and which are both in need of funding right now.
So you can come and dance *and* do your part to support
Earthdance and CQ!
