Corona Virus Arrangements

We thank every dancer who has joined us via Zoom to dance solo or with just their partner over the last 18 months. We have all made new friends around the world, and we value that experience.

VFMC are delighted to see a return to face-to-face dance events subject to current Government restrictions and our Covid safe plan .

We ask our dancers:

While Zoom dances have helped many of us to keep both fit and sane during lockdowns, we find that Zoom participation at live dances loses much of its value, and requires a level of support that we cannot sustain. We will not attempt to provide Zoom access to our December 4th, End of Year dance.

Join us for a Christmas bush dance at your home on the 3rd Saturday of December at 7.30pm. There is no charge. Just contact Jane for the meeting code and password.

As more of us gain access to local, live dances, participation in our Zoom dances had begun to wane. The December 18th Zoom dance will be our final zoom dance for 2021. We may not resume Zoom dancing in 2022. Please check here.
