Capacity limits / Pre-registration for practices

We received word from Island Health today that capacity limits are in place, that we can have a maximum of 25 people in attendance for a class or practice.

In order to comply we are re-instituting the pre-registration requirement to ensure we don’t exceed the limit through drop-ins. In order to register, sign into your account and go to the calendar page. Click on the practice you wish to attend, wait for the page to load, scroll down and register. If you have any problems or cannot register online, email me: president@vbds.org or call 250 743 3743

Up to two people can register at once under a single name.

You can pre-register up to 7 days in advance.

If there is sufficient demand we will split the practices in two: 7-8 PM and 8-9 PM.

Drop-ins will be granted entry IF less than 25 members have pre-registered AND we have not yet reached 25 attendees.

Please be patient as we navigate these requirements and try to both make it work but also make it as easy as possible for you all.

Thank you,

Michael

 

Practice in the Gym at Centennial United Church on Friday, January 21st

We are back! The start will be a little rough but at least we have one venue to practice in.

Centennial United Church has given us permission to restart classes and practices. Our first, all levels practice will be this Friday, from 7-9PM in the Gym.

All the same protocols:

  • masks on while in the building,
  • proof of vaccination using the Covid passport and
  • everyone must sign in.

Dancing is back!

2022/1/18 

The Public Health Order prohibiting dance classes and practices will be lifted, effective midnight tomorrow. We will do everything we can to get things up and running as quickly as possible.

I have sent emails to Centennial United Church and Cedar Hill Rec Centre requesting permission to start practices as soon as possible – hopefully commencing this Friday. As updates come in, I will post them to our website.

When the restrictions came down in December, my plan was to simply take the block of classes that were set to start in early January and move them by however many weeks we were off line. During the shutdown, CUC, CHR and ROWI all confirmed, that we would keep our timeslots. I will try to connect with our instructors as soon as possible and confirm the shifted schedule still works with them.

I hope we can all lace up / strap up our dance shoes soon.
