Before you send in your information
The information on this website is provided mostly by the local dance studios,
venues, bands, and dancers. The webpage that you were just looking at is part
of a much larger website managed by someone who is focused on swing dancing in
Boston, Massachusetts and is provided as a convenience to readers who
might be looking for dance-related information in Boston, New England, and any
of the other 50 states, as well as Canada and around the world.
At no time do I seek to be the one comprehensive directory for everyone. Even if
I got paid to do this full-time, I wouldn't have enough time to keep everything up
to date. For this I count on my readers to help me with venues that they are aware
of. If your favorite venue is more than 10 miles from Boston, then it's most likely
that I've never been there.
To make it easier and more likely that I'll list your information on this
website, here are a few hints:
- Send email to me. It's faster for me to cut and paste from an email
message. I can also get the message if I'm traveling for business.
- Don't ask me to call for information. I don't get reimbursed for
phone calls so I will *NOT* spend the money (and time) to call up for
information. Note that if I'm in Florida, Massachusetts is
- Don't ask me to look at your website for the information I need for
my website. It takes time to load up a website and search for
important information, even with DSL. I might pick the wrong
to use if I have to search for it. I might not even get around to it.
- I tend to do the easy stuff first and put off the time-consuming
stuff until later. (again, I do have a life besides dance).
That means anything that takes too much of my
time risks not getting on the website and getting forgotten.
- Get the information to me with a reasonable lead time. I like to get
the information on the website early so more people will have a
chance to see it. Some people have been sending me their information
the day before their event. In those cases, don't bother because it
just annoys me.
- Try to send just new information or changes. If I get "reminders" of
various activities, it wastes my time to have to make sure I had the
information already or if it had changed.
I suggest using the form below to submit your information
If you need to, you can use electronic
mail to write to me.
