Iron Dancer Awards

Dang, it appears that it's time to provide a bit more information. Here it is. If you dance 4 nights in a row on a Brattleboro Dawn Dance weekend (including the majority of the Dawn Dance itself) AND you drag yourself to the FIFTH night at the Monday night dance in Nelson, we'll give you an award and certificate. Make sure that Kelly or Lisa know that you're in the running.

The point is to have fun and not get hurt. Please exercise restraint and good judgment.

Rules are subject to change without notice, according to the whims of the Arbitrary Rules Committee.

There was a long history of folks doing the marathon before we started calling it "Iron Dancer." We pay tribute to those who generated the concept of "erving" as one way of referring to this crazy behavior.
