COVID Policy:
Masks are now optional for dancers and performers alike.
Proof of vaccination is not required for entry to the event.
You will not need to provide contact information and sign a waiver.

In other words, at this time, attending the first Wednesday contra dance will be the same as in pre-COVID years with the exception that wearing a mask for self-protection is encouraged for those who wish to do so. Please respect others’ choices with regard to wearing or not wearing masks without judgement or prejudice.
