COVID Safety Protocols

Your safety is very important to us & we are not playing around with this omicron variant:

πŸ‘‰πŸ½advance tickets only: sorry, but no walk-ins

πŸ‘‰πŸ½all attendees must verify their vaccination status in order to access the ticket link (we now require proof of a booster/3rd dose if you are eligible for one)

πŸ‘‰πŸ½masks are required at all times while inside the building until further notice** (Social dancing is a high-risk, close-contact activity. We are keeping an eye on the actual case numbers in our area and we base our studio mask policy on those numbers)

**we are in a surge right now, but if case numbers return to what we consider a low threshold, we may try out a "test or mask" policy at a future dance. IF we decide to try this, details will be provided to registered attendees in your Dance Info email, which is sent to you the day of the dance.


Schedule:

6:30pm: doors open

7pm: Beginner Lindy Hop lesson (included with admission)

8:pm: DJ'd music for social dancing

10ish: dance ends, doors close


If you plan to take the beginner lesson, please arrive no later than 7pm! 

No partner or dance experience is needed to take the beginner lesson or to attend the dance. 

The beginner lesson is a Rotating Partner format class, meaning you will dance with everyone in the class, even if you come with a partner.


Sliding Scale Admission

We've implemented a "sliding scale" payment structure for all of our events.  You can choose to pay the regular admission price of $8 or our discounted admission of $5. Those in a position to support others in the community can choose to give a little extra by selecting $10 admission, which helps to subsidize the discounted admissions and sustain the studio space.

We also have several volunteer spots available on the registration form. Work an hour shift at the check-in table and get into the dance for free!


Reserve your spot at the dance

All reservations must be made in advance & pre-paid online

(No walk-ins or paying at the door, sorry!)

Ticket sales will close at 5:30pm on June 11th or when sold out, whichever is first. 

If you're sending your vax card to us for the ticket link password, please try and send it well before the ticket cut-off time so that we have time to see it and respond. 


To get access to the registration form, email RVAswing@gmail.com with the following info:

  • a clear photo or scan of your vaccination card (name & dates need to be legible)
  • your name, if you go by something other the first name on the card
(If you've already sent us your vaccine card showing your booster, you are on our verified list & you already have the password for our 2022 events. You don't need to send it again. If you haven't sent us an updated card image, you will need to do so to get the new password.)

πŸ‘‰πŸ½We only accept vaccine verifications via email.
