CSDS Newsletter ~ June 2021
Greetings CSDS Dancers!

Big news!! In last month's newsletter, CSDS announced our first in-person dance will be in July. Well, that's still happening but in the meantime, a wonderful opportunity has come up (thank you Eddie + Adela for arranging!) so we will actually have our first in-person dance on Sunday, June 27th, from 4:00-7:00 pm, at a private residence in Albemarle County! We are so excited!! Here are the details:

  • Advanced Registration is required due to parking and attendance limits; carpooling encouraged (self-organize here).
  • Vaccine Only (show your vaccine card to CSDS Staff either in-person, by video, text or email). Masks are optional.
  • Cost: Free!!
  • Earlybird Registration for CSDS Members through June 13th. Become a CSDS Member here!
  • Open Registration for everyone June 14th-20th.
  • Registration (including proof of vaccination) will be confirmed by CSDS Staff on a rolling basis. Email CSDS to register! Become a CSDS Member here! Registration closes when we reach our parking/attendance limit or on June 20th, whichever occurs first.
  • Bottled water will be provided; you are welcome to BYO refreshments (no alcohol).
  • Location: the venue address will be emailed to registered dancers the morning of June 27th; this should not be shared/posted since it is a private residence. In addition to the dance hall, there are outdoor gathering spaces for relaxing and socializing.

The Board believes vaccination is a key part to returning to social dancing and our entire Board has been vaccinated. The Charlottesville COVID vaccination center now takes walk-ins at certain times; you can schedule your appointment here.
