Welcome and Inclusive Space for All!
LDDA is a non-gender balanced event. "Dance with who's comin' atcha!"
We strive to create a camp community that is welcoming, inclusive, and safe for all dancers. Both gendered and non-gendered accommodations are provided.
We encourage campers to dance any role, with any partner they choose. Our goal is to foster an environment where dancers are comfortable both in asking for a dance and in declining one. Ask partners kindly, and accept their answers graciously.
Evening Dances (open to public):
Evening Dances (Friday, Saturday, Sunday) will be OPEN to the PUBLIC, space allowing, at $25 each evening.
Scholarships and the Scholarship Fund:
There are a very limited number of work scholarships, with up to $100 off the registration fee, intended to make participation possible for those with financial hardships. Email Dan at LaborDayDance@gmail.com for scholarship requests.
The LDDA Raffle helps raise money to support this wonderful dance weekend.
Popular raffle items include handicrafts or artwork, musical instruments, jewelry, dance shoes and accessories, new CD's, homemade foodstuff, gift baskets, outdoor gear, tools, free or discount admission to a contra dance weekend, etc.
We need YOUR help to make it a success. Please think about what you might have that others may want to win.
