Do I need to register to access information?
You do not need to register or login. Nearly all material is accessible for everybody. Only if you want to participate (e.g. ask or answer questions, comment, upload pictures, add videos etc.)
A social network allows people to share information about themselves, connect with people they know (tagged as "friends" in the network), share information like their current status, their hobbies, upload photos, add videos, help with questions etc. All this happens on website like Dancilla which is tailored to support a community of dancers and people related to and interested in dancing.
Dancing is a social thing and brings you in contact with new dances and other dancers. You can enhance you own social dance life by being a member of the dance community on Dancilla. Dancilla helps you to connect to dancers from around the globe and point them to dance-related information, that either you or others have shared and discovered. In the end, everybody profits from the community of passionate dancers.
But, you don't need to join. All materials in the archive and most information about the community members is accessible for non-members.
The documentation for all the features for the Dancilla social network can be found here: User guide
