Dear dance organizer friends, We're thrilled to announce that the Puttin' On the Dance (POTD) <http://www.puttinonthedance.org>conference returns this year.
*Save the Dates for POTD3!* *November 30 – December 2, 2018* *Puttin’ On the Dance 3 : A Conference for Northeast Dance Organizers* Join us for POTD3 in Portland, Maine. Learn, connect, dance, and more! POTD is especially for organizers in Eastern Canada and the Northeastern United States who produce dance events in the North American and English social dance traditions (e.g., Cape Breton, community, contra, English country, family, gender free, Quebecois, and square). Space permitting, others interested in dance organizing, whether from other regions or those not currently organizing dances, are also welcome to attend. POTD is all about: - Providing resources and opportunities for learning, sharing, renewal and fun! - Strengthening our network of dance organizers - Practicing traditions together - Did we mention having fun? Lead sponsors include DownEast Friends of the Folk Arts (DEFFA <http://www.deffa.org>) and Portland Intown Contra Dance (PICD <http://www.portlandintowncontradance.com>). *Be in touch!* Let us know you’re excited, want to help make it happen, and/or anything else.

The Back Story:* In November 2011, Puttin' On the Dance convened nearly 80 dance organizers in White River Junction, VT. In March 2015, Puttin' On the Dance 2 convened over 80 dance organizers in Ottawa, ON. Both POTD1 and POTD2 were packed with workshops, discussions, dancing and more. Dance communities throughout the region benefited from the weekend conference in significant ways, and Conference Archives from POTD1 <http://www.puttinonthedance.org/potd1archive/> and POTD2 <http://www.puttinonthedance.org/potd2-conference-notes/> continue to support dance organizers. Participants made it clear an event like this should happen every few years. (See testimonials <http://www.puttinonthedance.org/testimonials/>.) It’s time for POTD3! -- puttinonthedance.org facebook.com/PuttinOnTheDance *You're on the POTD email list because we think you're interested in conferences for dance organizers.
