AACTMAD is the the Ann Arbor Community for Traditional Music and Dance, a nonprofit participatory membership organization that enriches people's lives and sense of community through traditional music, dance, song, and related arts.
We organize and sponsor over 100 traditional music and dance events each year that welcome the public. Our members actively learn and preserve many different types of traditional music and dance. With over 200 members, mostly in SE Michigan, we also support the traditional music and dance community as a whole, throughout Michigan. We hope you will consider becoming a member.
AACTMAD is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, membership-based, public charity foundation.
The Board of Directors sets the long-term direction for the organization and oversees its activities focusing on the "what and why" of realizing the mission, including what human needs are to be met, for whom, and at what cost. One-third of the board members are elected each April for three-year terms.
Proposals and other emails can be sent to the Board at email@example.com
