[03/07/20]   Dear Dance Family,
We are committed to keeping our attendees as safe as possible. Based on the current situation in the US with COVID 19 - these are the steps we are taking during the MDC event weekend.

1. We will be providing hand sanitizer and strongly recommending that sanitizer be used upon entry to workshops and the ballroom

2. We will be wiping down frequently touched areas like doors, elevator buttons, etc. several times a day.

3. If you are sick - Please stay home! We will offer a full event fee credit to those registrants who provide a doctor’s note stating they are not allowed to travel/attend the event due to flu or related illness.

4. We will provide bottled water in the ballroom to reduce the possibility of cross contamination.

We encourage you to visit the CDC’s website (cdc.gov) to stay up to date on the latest information.

If you have any questions, please contact us!
