My dear dancing friends,
After 21 years of uninterrupted operation since 1989, it is my
regret that Dancer's Digest will enter unspecified period of hiatus.This
heartbreaking decision had to be made due to the publisher's personal
challenge caused by prolonged health problems.
Although we cannot promise when we will be back, we can promise
your Dancers Digest will be back.
Dancer's Digest has been one and only service both on- and off-line,
promoting healthy culture of partner dance and sharing dance information
for free or at a minimal cost. We provided professional classes,
educated instructors and organized professional events for social
dancers since far before social media and Internet became as popular
as it is today. We are proud to see many other promoters who followed
the suit; we are eager to support and work with all of you again.
The online version of Dancers Digest was a simple and straight-forward
newsletter and email alerts: list of who, where and what, to have
fun and learn. All the information was submitted by you and put
together by volunteers like you. Thanks for making Dancer's Digest
your main source for your dance fun.
During this hiatus, I will still shoot out an email alerts every
now and then - after all, I am getting information all the time.
If you are interested in receiving email alerts, please send
me a subscription request with following information: name,
area you dance/live/work, and types of dance you are interested
Also, I hope I can continue to ask your support of events with
special interests, such as "Dancer with Cancer," and
fundraising events for special occasions.
I thank you dearly for being my students, associates and friends.
Thanks for learning to dance and grooving your life to the rhythm.
Until we meet again, please dance for me too. I look forward to
joining you in near future.
Publisher & Executive Director
and staff at Dancers Digest
