About Billtown Dance

This non-profit “BilltownDance.com” website attempts to QUICKLY link you to ballroom and swing dance announcements for Williamsport, Pennsylvania region.

  • 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 3 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.
