Coronavirus Update, June 7th 2021

Hello Dance Friends and Family!

We at the Downtown Amherst Contra Dance Committee are all still here, and we are looking forward to getting back together again to dance and laugh and enjoy being together. At this point, we cannot provide an estimate for when DACD will resume hosting in-person events. When the time comes, we will consider all state and federal health regulations, CDC recommendations, guidance from the Country Dance and Song Society (CDSS) and the National Folk Organization (NFO), and the voices of our community members. Please stay tuned for updates as the Committee continues to meet, discuss, and plan. Until then, we will continue to miss your smiling faces. Take care of each other and be well.

Pandemic Questionnaire

We are missing your presence and smiling faces. We know many of you share a longing to be together again, dancing and socializing. Please respond to this poll with your interest in connecting as a community and how we as organizers can help, until such a time when safely dancing is possible.

Coronavirus Cancellation Announcement

It is with heavy hearts that we must announce the cancellation of our Downtown Amherst Contra Dance events for the foreseeable future. Precautionary measures must be taken in the face of COVID-19 to ensure the safety and health of our dance community, and the larger local community.

We will continue to monitor the situation and communicate with other local organizers and performers. We value every one of you and will miss you dearly. Sending lots of love to our dance community and hoping to see you all soon.

If you are able, please consider supporting any of the amazing talent that may be struggling during this difficult time.
