BDS presents available information from the ASK-DPOPE database on some of our local ballroom dancespots.To enter an entry into ASK-DPOPE you must first get a user registrationID (ie ContactID) by completing the "People/Input" section. Then,with the ContactID to enter a "dancespot" just complete an on-line BDSWEB registration "Place" "Input" section entry in ASK-DPOPE, with "Place Type" as "DanceSpot", and "Region" as "SF Bay Area",and "Notes" as you want to be listed. You will be automatically added.Remember your assigned ID's and passwords as they will be neesed to update the entry as often as you like with the "Update" sections of ASK-DPOPE. E-mail,or call/(fax) us at (408)871-1895/(1896) if you have problems. (DanceSpots in other areas can of course enter their data in other Regions,States,Countries etc as most appropriate.Similar listings can be generated for those areas by appropriate search entries into the generalized search table below.)
Enter your search parameters below. Only enter values you require - leave others blank.
Tips on using the BDSWEB database search "engine": The searching logic returns everything in the database that does not violate your input criteria. So if you do not enter anything,you get a dump of the entire BDSWEB database---- ( up to the limit of the internal output limits). With this kind of logic it is recommended to specify a minimum of what you are certain of, to be sure your item is not eliminated, and to add additional criteria on another search,if necessary, to reduce the number of returned items.
For example to be sure of finding "The California Winter Festival", entering "winter" in the event name would get it, whereas "Ca Winter Festival" would not since it is not exactly how the item is listed,ie. "Ca" is not abbreviated. As another example, if you were not sure of the name,but knew the event was a "Ballroom Competition" in California,you could select "Ballroom Competition" under "Event Type" and enter "CA" under state, to get a listing of all the ballroom competitions in California.
