THIS IS HISTORICAL INFORMATION ONLY
"It was over a cup of coffee that Mr. Pokorak (the publisher) and I gave birth to this magazine. There are several publications in this field, and they are all good. But EVERYBODY DANCE is different than any yet published. As you leaf through this issue you can see what we have prepared for you. The description — history — music — and record information of Folk songs and dances — mixers — squares — those currently popular — those with inches of dust on them. New types of articles — costume page — record page — and many more services which the square and folk dancer needs.
We would like to know how you like our magazine and would appreciate suggestions, letters of criticism of festivals -- classes -- roundups and so forth. Also any information which may be useful to the dancer.
This is your magazine. We hope you like it.
We believe this publication lasted just one issue. Rudy Dannes provided all the artwork and the writing.
From Everybody Dance, Vol. 1, No. 1, January 1950.
This first and only issue of the magazine was published by Frank Pokorak and edited
by Rudy Dannes, who was later to become co-owner of The Intersection,
the premier folk dance coffeehouse in Los Angeles, California.
