Because a large number of people signed up for the last class session with a mask requirement in place, we felt it would be inappropriate to take the masks off until the session was over. It ended this week, and we are happy to say that the Ballroom will be going mask-optional (which, we suppose, was always the case) starting tomorrow night. A handful of things:
1) Proof of vaccination is still required and will remain required for the foreseeable future.
2) If the situation changes, our response will change. Masks may come back. That's life.
3) We'll be carrying a mask in our pockets, and will be absolutely willing to put them on to dance with people who would prefer it that way. You should, too! Hooray!
4) Don't harass people about it. Don't harass the staff about it. If you have to share your feelings on the subject, share them with Michael and Sarah. But probably don't do that either. Treat everyone with respect and dignity.
