Meeting Guidelines

The purpose of these guidelines is to assist present and future officers, members, teachers, and cuers in the planning and implementation of DRDC meetings/dances.


The Chairman will seek the advice of the Officers and the Advisory Board on any issue thought to have potential of causing Members to complain.

For teachers using minidisks, please use the DRDC standard format for minidisk recordings:  the "left" channel (the white jack on some machines) for music and the "right" channel (the red jack on some machines) for the cuer's voice, and that the two channels be balanced as well as possible when recording.

The Vice-Chairman is responsible for obtaining volunteer cuers for the dance program at every DRDC dance.
