SQUARE ‘EM UP!

JUNE 12, HAL BARNES CALLING, Andrith Davis cueing Pre-Rounds 12:45-1:15, 1:30-2:00 Review,2:00-4:00, SSD Squares with 3rd Tip Plus. Masks optional. Please bring your own non-spill water bottle and snacks. Salida Community Center, 305 F Street, Salida, CO.

WE’RE BACK!

All righty, square and round dancers, looks like we are going to give dancing a try starting June 12. Hopefully the Covid restrictions we be loose enough by then to allow us to open the doors! So, tentatively, our dancing will start June 12 with Caller Hal Barnes and Cuer Andrith Davis, at the Salida Community Center, 305 F St. Our usual dance time is 1:30-4:00, mostly Social Square Dance level (EASY) with a little Plus just to remind us of how long it has been since we have danced. Hal has promised that we will start with Circle Left and review from there!

We hope that masks will be optional, and really encourage everyone to be vaccinated before then. Covid makes it hard to etch plans in stone, so keep checking back for updates.

SADLY, STILL NOT DANCING

We are so bummed, missing the call to “Square ’em Up”.  Needless to say, we can’t even predict when this will happen again, but until it is safe for everyone, we are on hold.  Keep checking back, and keep the faith!

‘TIL SEPTEMBER…

Rather than have dancers wondering when it is safe to get back on the floor, we are SUSPENDING ALL ACTIVITIES until SEPTEMBER.  Come August, our board will evaluate the situation at that time and decide about the dance schedule for the rest of this year.  In the meantime, watch square and round dance videos on YouTube, get into the Zoom virtual dances, and keep the home fires burning.    Stay tuned for another episode of “Life in the Covid-19 Lane…”.

CANCELLED

Like so many other, we are cancelling our dances and classes until further notice.  Tumbleweed Jamboree is scheduled for April 25th, but the likelihood is that it will be postponed until May 23 at least, with Bob Riggs.  Stay tuned for the next episode of…”Life in the Covid-19 Lane.”
