I just sent three separate email replies, with a host of attachments, but 
they're awaiting moderator approval.

Maybe I should have been more savvy than simply attaching files.  They're ones 
I have collected over the years, including from the Pourparler Alum listserve.

I sent them directly to Emily.  If anyone else wants them, email me directly.

Subject: [Organizers] Ideas/resources on the benefits of contra (and generally 
trad social dance)

Hi fellow shared weight organizers :)

I hope you're doing pretty well.  It's snowing here in Ottawa but the red-wing 
blackbirds showed up in our yard this morning for the first time so spring is 
pushing through!

I was wondering if any of you have resources that provide information on 
benefits of contra dance (or trad social dance generally). This could be as 
simple as your list of benefits, it could be newspaper articles, videos, 
scientific studies... or other!

Why?  It's interesting generally I thought we might all enjoy as tools for 
advocacy.  However, the question initially came up for me as I am working on 
letter to our Finance Minister in Canada about some issues around non-profit 
taxing ($50,000 income we have to charge tax.... ugh... it's turned out to be 
quite difficult for our organizer which is all voolunteer run and already cash 
strapped.)  Anyway --- would love to hear your ideas!!! :) :) :)

I've also posted this question on the FB Organizers of contra dance group.  So 
if you're on both, you'll likely see it there too.

Thanks so much!
