  • Where Can I Dance?

    October 18th, 2013
    contra, tech, trycontra  [html]
    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

    You put in your zip code and it shows you the closest dances. The code is on github. The list of dances comes from taking existing resources and cleaning up dead links, plus some searching.

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