For the safety of everyone, all participants will be required to wear a well-fitting mask on the dance floor. Please bring one with you! Those wearing a mask that is slipping down or gaping will be respectfully asked to choose a blue surgical mask from the event table. We highly recommend you get vaccinated before participating in these events. Not being vaccinated put you and others not vaccinated at risk for severe infection, long term effects and death.

In addition if you bring your vaccination certificate and picture ID, we will give you a reusable DTD wrist band to wear indicating that you are vaccinated. Go You!

We also recommend you bring water for your use. Please recycle your bottles. Thanks!
