We've started holding some indoor dances!

Covid hasn't gone away completely, but it's trending down far enough that we've decided to try some indoor dances.

All of our dances  will require proof of vaccination until further notice, as well as good masks.  Even though dancers who are healthy and vaccinated are reasonably safe from harm, their friends and family who are either unvaccinated or unhealthy may not be safe if they are visited by someone who has been to a dance unmasked, so we are currently requiring that dancers wear masks at the dance.

We  require n95 or kn95 masks. If you have one, please bring it! Otherwise, we'll have some available at the dance for you, free of charge. We are asking all dancers who can, to make a donation to help pay for the masks

PLEASE NOTE: Since we require that all attendees be fully vaccinated, please get your vaccination, and 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!

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).  It can take a while to get symptoms, so please let us know if you get sick within about two weeks after the dance.

Upcoming Dances at the Monday Club

In case the pandemic news gets worse and we have to cancel, please check back here to make sure we're still meeting!

In accordance with current health department recommendations, all of our dances currently
require proof of vaccinations, KN-95 masks, and contact tracing sign-in when you arrive.
If you don't have your own mask, they are available for free (donations accepted) at check-in.

Here are a few places to locate them:

 

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


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 application program on your 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:
