COVID-19 Protocols:

Vaccination required: In order to keep the community safe during this time, we are going to be requiring proof of vaccination against COVID-19. This means having been fully vaccinated (receiving a second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, or first dose of the J & J vaccine at least two weeks prior to dancing). You can either bring your vaccination card or a picture of your card to dancing - we will not record any information from the card, just note that you have received the vaccination. Each dancer will need to sign a waiver as well (extra copies will be available at the session).

Masks required: Per recommendations from CDC and the Town of Brookline, we are requiring the use of masks. If you have any COVID-like symptoms (headache, fever, cough, shortness of breath, loss of smell, etc.) please wait until you have a negative PCR test before dancing with us again.

 

Rikud Revi'i (Wednesday night Israeli Dancing session) is operated by

Greater Boston Israeli Dance, Inc., a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit

organization. We are a 100-percent volunteer organization; every

penny we receive in admissions & donations is used to keep the

session going!
