The Dancing Bears Newcomer Site
The Bears, in an effort to make newcomers feel at home, have added this Newcomers site to familiarize you new dancers with what the Bears is all about. Check it out for great info on the Bears and handy articles on dance propriety, what to expect and general info.
Here is a copy of the Dancing Bears Supervision Policy. It is to ensure the supervision of underage attendees at Dancing Bear events.
The purpose of the listserver is to serve DB members in the promotion of dance and music. These guidelines are intended to encourage appropriate targeting of messages and support good listserver etiquette.
This policy is a guide to what is appropriate to include in Dancing Bears' electronic and printed publications.
