Returning to In-Person Dancing With Ohio Chapter

July 18, 2020

The Ohio Chapter Board of Directors has developed a set of proposed guidelines for resuming our in-person dance events.  These provisions, accompanied by a liability waiver will be enacted when we return to having monthly dances, no sooner than October, 2020.  The following links contain the wording of the guidelines and waiver.

All 2020 Kent Dances Have Been CANCELLED

Ohio Chapter is in regular contact with the venues that host our monthly dances as well as our three annual dinner dances. Our monthly dances have been cancelled until further notice while that venue looks into what needs to be done to safely reopen for large gatherings.

Our semi-formal event in March was cancelled as stay-at-home recommendations were initiated by our state. The venue for our dinner-dances is located on a college campus (Kent State University). While KSU looks to how they will bring students back on campus and what gatherings can be held on campus, they informed our Chapter early this month that no outside organizations (i.e., non-KSU affiliated) will be able to hold events on campus for the summer and fall semesters of 2020.

Ohio Chapter regrets to announce that our Summer Serenade and Harvest Ball dances held in July and October respectively, are cancelled for 2020. 

The Ohio Chapter Board of Directors thanks you for your understanding and we hope that you will continue to take all necessary precautions to remain or become symptom-free of COVID-19, cold, influenza or any other communicable illness. We look forward to dancing with you in the near future.

Yours in health and dance,

USA Dance Ohio Chapter
