Masks are now required starting August 1st

In light of the recent developments with Covid-19, The Dance Space, Rigby's Jig and Simply Ballroom have agreed as a group to implement a new mask policy effective Sunday, August 1st. The policy will require that ALL clients and staff wear masks at all times in our studios, regardless of vaccination status. We feel strongly that this is the most prudent step we can take to protect our staff, our clients and our families. We are hopeful that this policy will be short-lived but, at this point, the end-date for this policy is yet to be determined. Please be mindful that masks and face coverings should cover the mouth and the nose, to be fully effective.

We know that this message is frustrating, and probably not the update that anyone wants to receive. However, we feel strongly that masks are our only line of defense at this point, considering the close-contact nature of social dancing. We hope that you stay safe and we look forward to seeing you on the dance floor.
