Because of ongoing COVID-19:
— There is a limit of 36 attendees, and preregistration is encouraged. To preregister, please email Tom at firstname.lastname@example.org. 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 email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org.

Your old cloth masks will need to be retired for our dance, sorry.
— 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.
