Wednesday Dancing 2/23 CANCELED - See You Next Week!

Katie Hamelburg
 

Dear Wednesday Night Dancers, 

As you may have heard, unfortunately someone who danced this Monday tested positive for COVID (see below for the message from MonDance). Out of an abundance of caution, we are canceling this week's Rikud Revi'i session so that everyone who was there Monday can have sufficient time to test before returning to dancing next week. Thank you to MonDance for letting us know, and to all of you for all you're doing to keep everyone safe! 

We're rescheduling with Pazit and looking forward to learning one of her dances from her in the near future! 

Stay well, and looking forward to seeing you next week,
Rikud Revi'i

Dear MonDancers,

We’re writing to let you know someone who attended dancing last night informed us that they tested positive for COVID today. We would like to thank this person and everyone at dancing for diligently masking and for letting us know! We encourage you to monitor for symptoms and to test when possible, and to let us know if you’ve tested positive.

Thank you again for all you’re doing to keep our community safe during this crazy time! We’re so grateful to be able to hold dancing during this time, and keep our community safe because of all of your efforts.

Stay safe and well, and looking forward to seeing you on the dance floor soon.

All the best,
Your MonDance Team
