New dancers are welcome and should come early for new dancer instruction at 1:45 (no partner necessary). Wear smooth-soled, low-heeled shoes. Admission is $13 for members and affiliates, $15 for non-members, $5 for dancers 30 or younger. If you’re comfortably able to pay the $15, those few extra dollars will help support our series as we all recover from the pandemic. This is a fragrance-free event, so no perfume or scented products please.
Because of ongoing COVID-19:
— There is a limit of 36 attendees, and preregistration is encouraged. To preregister, please email Tom at email@example.com. We will confirm your registration or if you are on the waiting list at least one week before the dance. If you preregister and realize you can’t come, even if it’s right before the dance, please tell us so we can notify the folks on the waiting list. The managers’ email addresses are firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
— As of March 11, we have discontinued the vaccination requirement to attend our local dance events, though we do strongly encourage vaccination and current boosters. We will also require the wearing of appropriate masks. At the green CDC Community Level, well-fitting cloth or surgical masks are acceptable, and at yellow or red levels, N95-type masks are required. At these higher levels, KN95, KF94 and technical cloth masks, such as Enro Tech Mask, Happy Mask Pro, Proper Cloth Mask, Graf Lantz Zenbu Mask, and Kitsbow Face Mask, are also acceptable. Thanks for your support in keeping the transmission of COVID-19 and other infections to a minimum.
— Please realize that dancing poses a potential risk, even to those who are vaccinated. If you have a compromised immune system, please wait and come when you feel it would be safe.
— If you are not feeling well the day of the dance please stay home to protect yourself and others.
— We won’t have the group snack table until we can stop being masked indoors, but folks are welcome to bring their own treats to enjoy during the break.
— Please avoid wearing any scented products.
— Please mention the dance to friends!
