Guess What! WE'RE WORKING ON STARTING UP AGAIN
We're not yet super-ready to start up full-time, but we're currently planning to hold this year's first indoors dances on September 12 and 26, and every 2nd and 4th Sunday after that. Be sure to check back here, however, in case we need to change that plan.
PLEASE NOTE: We will require that all attendees be fully vaccinated - be ready to show your proof! If you don't want to get vaccinated, I suppose we'll just have to wait a while to have the pleasure of dancing with you again, darn it!
In addition, there are some outdoor and zoom dances being held by various members of the St Louis dance community. The outdoor ones also require proof of vaccination, but they are currently considered a bit safer because of the larger air flow. Many vaccinated attendees also wear masks - they aren't very at-risk, but their friends and family may be, so it's considered smart to protect them.
We also collect a list of the attendees at these dances so that if anyone does get sick, we can notify all the others to be sure and get tested (i.e., contact tracing). This is also the reason we are holding the dances at least two weeks apart - it can take that long to get symptoms. Do please let us know if you got sick in that two week period!
Sunday, September 12, 2021 - 7pm at the Monday Club $10
Sunday, September 26, 2021 - 7pm at the Monday Club $10
More to follow, just not yet. We haven't decided on the band and caller yet, either - but soon!

It's a zoom dance, so you'll need a zoom application program on your computer.
If you would like to help us meet our ongoing rent expense or (even better) help our callers and band musicians who count on this income to stay afloat, please consider donating! Some of us are sending in the amount we would normally use to pay to go dancing as the basis for our donations. (It's a thought...)
