Due to the weather forecast and the continuing Omicron threat, we have decided to cancel the dance on Sunday, 1/16. We sincerely regret the cancellation, but safety considerations are foremost. We look forward to seeing you on February 6.

Request from Waltz Time

A friendly request: If you recently assembled with people whose Covid/vaccination status is unknown and/or were unmasked during your time with them, please be considerate toward your waltz friends and refrain from dancing this Sunday, disappointing as that may be. The increasing number of Omicron cases demands that we all be extra-vigilant about safety. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
