This is a terrific time to become a member of CDSS. In January 2015, we will be issuing a Passport to Joy to every member, as part of the yearlong Centennial celebration, which concludes in December 2015.

What Is the Passport to Joy?

It's a passport booklet that you take with you wherever you dance, sing or play music. Collect one Passport to Joy sticker for each Participating Series or Special Event you attend. At the end of 2015, you’ll have a record of all the amazing things you did, and a really cool keepsake of this once in a lifetime celebration.

Send in your passport for verification to qualify for awesome awards -- for lots of stickers, furthest traveled, creativity, etc – to be presented in Spring 2016.

Send your 300 dpi color logo (or the name of your organization if you don’t have a logo) to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
