Safety at PATMAD events

Philadelphia Area Traditional Music and Dance is committed to the safety and comfort of the people who attend the events it sponsors. PATMAD needs the cooperation of all attendees to ensure all social interaction and physical contact is safe, appropriate, and welcome, on and off the dance floor.

If anyone is doing something that hurts or makes you feel uncomfortable or embarrassed, don't hesitate to let him/her know. Quite often, the offender does not realize he/she is making someone uncomfortable. If the inappropriate behavior continues, or if you do not feel comfortable confronting the person, report the matter to any board member or to the event manager.
