BDC membership and the web site – old

Benefits of your membership in the Boulder Dance Coalition

1. Publicity for your group and activities:

A direct benefit to you is that you may list your group and your group’s events on this web site. This will immediately provide your information to all of our participants, and future attendees looking to find out what activities and groups exist on the Colorado Front Range.

2. Supporting the folk arts and dance community:

Your membership in the BDC supports the creation of venues for dancing and other activities.  It helps build awareness of the enjoyment of music, dance, and folk arts.  By supporting the many activities sponsored by BDC and its member groups, such as the International Festival, you help build a better community.

3. Special pricing for renting space at the Avalon.

As a group member of the BDC, you are eligible to receive special member pricing for recurring rentals at the Avalon. (This does not pertain to individual members or one-time events.)

Boulder Dance Coalition’s Mission

The Boulder Dance Coalition is a non-profit, tax-exempt, educational organization, incorporated in the state of Colorado in 1988.  Our mission is to promote public participation in music, dance and other folk arts in the Front Range of Colorado, to encourage expansion of these activities in the larger community, to develop facilities for these activities, and to provide services for other organizations and individuals that share these goals.

Organizations, including commercial and for-profit organizations, are welcomed if:

  • The group is perceived as sharing our mission and goals.
  • They have the potential for becoming contributing members of our folk arts community.
  • Their activities support the BDC mission.
  • The group is regarded favorably in the city or town in which it operates.
  • Its activities are seen as having a positive contribution to the community.

There is no geographic limitation on the activities of the BDC, but historically the BDC has operated along the Front Range and nearby where its group and individual members can develop a sense of community through contact and shared activities.
