Below are some useful links for enjoying your stay in Bloomington. If you have questions and don't see the answer, email ddbdancers@gmail.com.

Note: If driving it will take you 20-25 minutes to get through all of Bloomington. It is a town of 75,000 but close to half of those people will be gone due to it being Spring Break for Indiana University.
