Missing in Action
I am now looking for the CONTRALAB library which was taken to some of the CONTRALAB meetings in the past. It hasn't been seen for a few years. If ANYONE knows the whereabouts of our Library, I have the perfect place for it. I can store all the references with our Self-Paced Program, which CONTRALAB published.
All of this is kept at the "Folk Dancer Record Center" by the Kentucky Dance Foundation. All of the reference material we have is available to any one who wants to use them. All you have to do is request the reference you want and we will send it to you. Of course we would like for you to return it after you have researched what you needed.
Once I receive the Library, I will develop a listing of all the reference material we have and the availability of those references. The Foundation already has a number of books which were mine, so all of that material will also be available.
