Dear Contra Dancer:
Researchers (and fellow contra dancers) Jonathan Sivier and Jan Buhrmann are conducting a study about the experiences and opinions of contra dancers across the country. The goals of this study are to examine and explore differences and similarities for dancers in different parts of the country, and better understand people's attraction to contra dance. We would like to get your ideas and opinions on your experience with contra dancing, what got you started, and what you like about it. Please feel free to add as many additional comments as you'd like.
Please be aware that completion of this survey is completely voluntary, and that you can decide to respond only to those questions with which you feel comfortable. Survey responses will be anonymous, and all responses will be reported on in aggregate (group) format, so that no individual response can be identified.
-- WE WOULD LIKE TO COMPLETE THE COLLECTION OF SURVEYS BY APRIL 20, 2019. PLEASE SUBMIT YOUR RESPONSES ON OR BEFORE THAT DATE. --
Please feel free to contact either of us with any questions: Jan Buhrmann - 303-503-0858 / email@example.com; Jonathan Sivier: 217-359-8225 / firstname.lastname@example.org.
We greatly appreciate your taking the time to share your experiences and reflections with us, and look forward to hearing from you. Thanks in advance.
- Jan Buhrmann and Jonathan Sivier.
