COVID Safety Protocols

Y'all, we haaate it, but COVID is still a thing.

πŸ‘‰πŸ½all attendees must verify their vaccination status in order to access the ticket link (we now require proof of a shot dated 2022 or 2023). 

πŸ‘‰πŸ½If buying tickets at the door, you must be able to show proof of a 2022/2023 dose to the door volunteer, even if you have already verified your status with the studio for classes. You can avoid this by buying an advance ticket!

πŸ‘‰πŸ½masks are now optional while inside the building but we definitely recommend a high-quality KN95 or similar if you want to reduce your COVID exposure risk (Social dancing is a high-risk, close-contact activity.

Studio Shoe Policy

--Please remove your street shoes in our waiting area, before entering the studio.

-- If you don't own dance shoes, please bring a clean pair of sneakers with non-marking soles to change into for classes/dances. This will help us keep rocks, grit, and dirt off the floor.

The following types of shoes are absolutely prohibited inside the RVA Swing studio:

NO stilettos or other spiked heels. Not only are these inappropriate and dangerous footwear for swing dancing, they also tend to gouge and dent wood floors.

No home-made duct tape soles.  Yeah these might work great for a bit, but as you dance, you wear through the tape and leave sticky adhesive gunk for everyone else to dance on. No bueno!
