Advance registration & prepayment is required for all classes & events at the RVA Swing studio. (No walk-ins at this time)

Due to the constantly evolving nature of COVID variants & case numbers, all of our studio classes require proof of vaccination prior to registration and until further notice masks are still required at all times while inside the building.

Richmond Metro Area COVID dashboard

A note on this dashboard: recently the CDC has changed the metrics by which it deems an area to be Low, Medium, or High community level, focusing not on actual case numbers, but on hospitalizations. This means that this dashboard can show our region as "low" even when case counts would have been considered high under previous metrics.

The actual level of cases and transmissions in our area is still elevated and continuing to trend upward.  Because partnered dancing is a close-contact, high-risk activity, we would need to see the top number on this dashboard below 70 to begin relaxing our studio mask policy.
