BIDA Signs

July 8th, 2013
contra, bida  [html]
This post is about our first round of signs. Our current signs are here

At the BIDA contra dance we put up colorful signs:

smile!

Reading these signs, you can see what kind of dance community BIDA wants to be:

ask different people to dance ask people sitting out to dance dance so that others feel comfortable dance with awareness of those around you connect with other dancers by starting dance moves on the musical phrase sign welcoming people to bida dance safely and in control share your enthusiasm with the performers! connect with other dancers by gently sharing weight smile! switch partners regularly take your time finding a partner talk to others about what makes good dancing use gestures and body language to help each other—always with a smile welcome and encourage newer dancers

What signs should we add? What signs should we remove?

(For example, I think we should consider adding "try dancing both roles". I think we should remove "connect with other dancers by starting dance moves on the musical phrase" because the people who understand what the sign means are already doing it and the people who aren't haven't been dancing long enough to hear the phrasing yet.)
