About the Community Dance Program (CDP)
Aside from the typical one-night stands that perhaps attract as many as one out of every ten Americans who have at least a single exposure to square dancing during their lifetime, the greatest potential for any future program lies in an easy-access, limited basics program that demands little commitment on the part of the dancers, but at the same time provides an almost unlimited scope of variety, friendship, and fun. However, the great majority of men and women who would like to be involved in square dancing on a limited time schedule find that such an on-going program is not available.
CDP is a grass-roots concept of the activity — the basic form of square dancing that Americans enjoyed for years. While there is no limit to the variety involved, it is the form of variety that can be achieved with a limited amount of class time and then enjoyed for a life-time.
