About This Website
About this site, its history, and how the site functions
There is no charge to add listings. Create an account and log in. Select 'Add a Listing' from the menu, and edit and submit the form.
There are three types of listings:
- Organization Listings (Dance Schools, Dance Associations, Nightclubs, DJs, Dance Bands & Dance Radio)
Adding an organization listing creates a new page on the site for your organization. It will also add a link to your page from its category index in the menu.
- Event Listings
Adding an event listing creates a new page on the site for your event, with its date(s). But it will then automatically append the event to your organization page, the calendar, and other related pages. An event can be any open scheduled dance-related event. It can be a recurring event. For a nightclub, it could the description of when you are open, for example, and the format of the evening. For a Dance Association, it could be a listing of your recurring dances. For a Dance School, it could be the description and start date of a new dance course, or the description and dates of drop-in classes. For a performance event, it could be the dates of a performance. You can add as many events as you like.
Adding a blog is for individuals as well as organizations. Here you can talk about your dance adventures. Others can then comment on your blog.
Once you have submitted a listing, you will be able to see your listing, but it will remain hidden from other visitors until it is approved by the editors. You can track its status from the 'My listings' page. We may contact you before it is 'published'. Once published, it will then appear on all the sites in our Dance-Places network.
You can re-edit any of your listings whenever you wish.
If you need any help adding a listing, contact us, and we can help walk you through it.
If you would like to edit or manage an existing listing on the site, that is about you or your organization, please let us know. You would then be able to make changes, corrections, or add more description to the item whenever required.
When you post on any of our sites, it will appear on all of them. Also, when people log into any of our sites, they can set their location to any place they want. We accept and show listings from any location.
If you are not logged in to a particular site, or have not set up your 'Location' in 'My account', the site will show to you distances measured from the centre of the selected town.
But if you log in and have set your 'Location' in 'My account', it will show to you distances measured from YOUR OWN PERSONAL location, as shown in the page header!
Your public user profile only shows your city and country. No one else sees your full address - when members log in they will see only their own full address. If you don't want to put your full address in 'My Account', you can always put in just your country, city & postal code.
If you are logged in and your own local timezone is not shown in the header, please edit your account to set your correct timezone.
When adding new listings, the times in actual listings should be entered assuming the authors' own local timezones.
But when viewing existing listings, the times shown in our calendars and pages are shown to you using a single timezone region as follows:
- If you are logged in, all times in the calendars will be shown in YOUR OWN PERSONAL timezone, as chosen in 'My account', and shown in the page header while you are logged in.
- But, if you are not logged in, all times in our calendars will be shown to you in the local timezone of the main city for that site.

First, it is not possible for people to discover an email address that is stored in an account. It is private and we won't give it out to anyone.
But people can contact others on this site by using private messages - all you need to know is the person's member id on this site. Log in, and go to 'My messages'. There you can send messages to other members, read your messages, or block other people from messaging you.
And others won't know your real email address, unless you tell them yourself.
By the way, email addresses entered on listings on this site cannot be 'captured' by spam bots. They may look to you like real email addresses in our listings, but to a spam bot, they are invisible!
