CDSS offers liability insurance to individual CDSS Members who are callers in the US. (Looking for group liability insurance instead? Click here.)

What It Covers

  • Liability insurance covers you, the caller, if you were to be sued for any acts (or omission of acts) that result in bodily injury or property damage while you are calling dances or related activities (including workshops and classes).
  • This is a general liability policy. It is not accident insurance.
  • This policy provides liability coverage up to $1,000,000 per occurrence, with a total limit of $3,000,000 per caller, per event.

What It Doesn’t Cover

  • This policy does not cover dancers, musicians, or any equipment.
  • This policy does not cover groups. (Check out our group liability insurance option if you are a CDSS Affiliate looking for group coverage.)

How It Works

  • Insurance coverage is May 1 through April 30 of the following year.
  • The cost is $75. “Additional insureds” do not cost extra.
  • Applications are accepted any time, but rates are not prorated (the cost is the same throughout the year, and all coverage ends on April 30).
  • Please allow two weeks for processing. If you need a certificate more quickly, this is usually possible; just email us.
  • Coverage is available to CDSS Members only. (Join here!)

Communities in Conflict

May 30, 2023

An online discussion to support organizers of dance, music, and song groups

From disagreements about COVID protocols to strong feelings about role terms on the dance floor, dance leaders and organizers have been in the middle of passionate community discussions the past few years. As an organizer, what approaches and techniques can you use to help your group through these rough patches? And what can you do to keep your own balance along the way?

CDSS Executive Director Katy German joined Jenny Beer, Dana Dwinell-Yardley, Sue Songer, and Kathy Story for a conversation about working through conflict as a community.

Recruiting and Keeping Volunteers!

March 7, 2023

An online discussion to support organizers of dance, music, and song groups

In our mostly volunteer-powered community, we’ve long faced challenges when it comes to finding and keeping the people who make our organization’s dance, music, and song activities possible. The COVID pandemic exacerbated those challenges and impacted both our organizations and the environment in which we work.

CDSS Executive Director Katy German hosted this Web Chat to discuss volunteer management and address key volunteer-related questions, such as:

  • Where do we find new volunteers?
  • How do we appreciate the volunteers we have and help them avoid burn-out?
  • How do we create processes for training volunteers and planning for position turn-over?

Reentry Resources for Organizers

Originally published September 2021.


One key question that keeps cropping up as we prepare for restarting in-person activities is: How will we know when the time is right? All music, dance, and song groups need to chart their own course based on their location, state and local public health guidance, type of event, and community needs. We hope the following set of resources will help organizers navigate the myriad decisions involved with safely resuming in-person events.

Non-Profit Management: Updating and strengthening our administrative foundation

Non-profit governance and administrative systems require routine updating as organizations evolve. This workshop is designed to help organizers of any committee—old or new—strengthen their administrative platform. Topics include: the pluses and minuses of incorporating and registering as a non-profit; the steps that a group must take to incorporate and/or register as a non-profit; and the roles that bylaws and articles of incorporation play to define the organization’s purpose and how the organization is governed. This workshop will be particularly helpful to groups that are not formalized as incorporated non-profits who are thinking about taking these steps, or for members of formalized committees who want to better understand governance systems. We’ll share some decisions that were addressed at our dances to generate discussion, clarify how CDSS is prepared to assist, and open up the floor to any governance/administrative issues that you might be tackling in your own dance community.
