Covid Protocol:

• Covid vaccination is no longer required.
• We ask those who are not up to date with COVID vaccines to mask at SIFD events.

We expect all dancers to stay home when they are not feeling well and not to return until after all their symptoms have left. For COVID specifically, we ask all dancers to observe CDC guidelines.

Gathering with any group involves risk of illness. By attending the dances you accept that risk.
