Well there was a bit more a few years ago, but then in addition to being a dance oriented side it was also a very active social media site for participants. Many of those people, some still here, do their social media things on FB now.

I see that I have over 6300 postings and I'm not even a dancer, in the usual sense of the word.... I'm here because I play violin in a ballet company orchestra. I've acquired many friends in the half dozen or so years I've been here, some no longer dancing who I see on FB; one who my wife and I traveled overseas to meet.

I've noticed the same thing and it's a little irritating because it feels like there's really no one single dance related forum that is popular and well known for all dancers to come to and discuss things. If I make a post asking for advice on how do I get my triple pirouette consistent, or "hey what did you guys think of this competition?" I get one response, if I'm lucky. There needs to be a dance forum website that actually gets promoted by famous dancers, like an actual Facebook for dancers, something popular! You know? This website has that potential but it's just not there.

This website had tons and tons of active dancers about 10 years ago. What happened is, we all gew up, got regular jobs, went to college, got married, had babies etc. That includes the site manager who couldn't keep up with all the new expectations of a website in a new era of the internet with a growing family of his own. And in the mean time Facebook and other sites like that got really popular so we didn't replenish our population with new young active dancers. Almost everyone here has a very special place in their heart for dance. but i'm not sure DDN will ever be nearly as full of active dancers as it was.

But the only way to fix that is for young active dancers like you to join, post about dance, and spread the word to your other dance friends that the infrastructure is already here for a great dance site, we just need a bigger population of active dancers to fill it!
