English Country Dance Workshops – Cancelled

March 11, 2020
Dear Dancers,
     I am sorry to inform you that we’re temporarily suspending the Rensselaer English Country Dances and also the Troy Friday night workshops until further notice. As of now this means there will be no events in March and April.
     Having polled the community, it appears turnout would be low for a variety of reasons, including fear of the corona virus. We don’t want to risk the health of our dancers first and foremost.  In addition, a low turnout does not warrant the effort of putting on these events.

     We’re sorry that we will miss these opportunities to enjoy dancing with each other and listening to beautiful music. However, we look forward to sharing dance experiences with you again when the current health crisis is over.
     Should the situation improve significantly in April, we will reconsider and let you know.
Don Bell
