Covid hasn't gone away completely. We still require proof of vaccines, and masks for some dances. This blue block below shows our current requirements and a link to the latest county covid status.

In accordance with current health department recommendations, all of our dances currently
require proof of vaccinations when you arrive.
Masks are suggested, but now optional at the Monday Club.
KN-95 or Surgical Masks are still required at Focal Point
If you don't have your own mask, they are available for free (donations accepted) at check-in

"ZOOM" EVENTS

MANY DANCERS AND MUSICIANS ACROSS THE COUNTRY ARE PARTICIPATING IN ZOOM or FACEBOOK EVENTS
Here are a few places to locate them:

 CDSS listings of Zoom events all over the country (world?).  Check it out!

 https://www.cdss.org/community/covid19/online-events


And if you'd like to submit an online event to CDSS you go here:

Several of us Childgrove dancers have found pleasure zoom dancing with a group at http://symmetryecd.com. Join us on Sundays at 1:00pm CST.

                     It's a zoom dance, so you'll need a zoom app on your device (or program on a computer).

CONSIDER DONATING

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...)

If you would care to make a donation to Childgrove (in any amount) here's the place:
