About Phx Dance:
 This non-profit "PhxDance.com" website attempts to QUICKLY link you to ballroom and swing dance announcements for the Phoenix, Arizona area.
  • We do this using a Yahoo Group, which is free to announcers and free to dancers.  
  • Dancers can  "subscribe" or "unsubscribe" themselves from this group.
  •   . . . . Or they can just BROWSE the announcements -- without subscribing to anything.

About Yahoo Groups:
 Yahoo groups are email announcement systems.  Assuming they are set to "public" ("anyone can view/anyone can join"), they all have these 2 features
  • Feature 1: You can BROWSE dance announcements on a web page in the automatically-created "message archives".
  • Feature 2: You can also "SUBSCRIBE" or "unsubscribe" yourself, by sending a "blank" email message (no subject, no body necessary) to the appropriate address.
  • Feature 3: Whenever an announcer sends a message, all "subscribers" will get a copy, and the Listserver (Yahoo group) will automatically create a new web page to display that message.
For more information:  Browse the Track2.com Listserver Page or Yahoo's Yahoo Groups Help page.

An Example -- of a similar Yahoo Group:

Click Here  BallroomDances.net   to view the "Billtown Dance/Track2.com DanceNet" Yahoo group, which has been operating since 2001 in North Central  Pennsylvania.

If you either scroll down the page, or use the "Messages" link on the upper left, you can view  announcements that have been sent.

Also, if you scroll to the bottom of the home page, you can see a little gray-colored chart, that shows you how many messages have been sent each month since the group was started.
