Experienced dancers know how to use ContraDanceLinks.com, Dance Gypsy, and the DanceDB to find places they can go contra dancing, but those sites are too complex and confusing for me to want to give to a new dancer. I complained about this on Facebook and then decided to write something. Here's a draft: trycontra.com/draft

I want to put this up at trycontra.com but what do I need to do first?
