Welcome to the Southern, MN Chapter of USA Dance!
Ballroom, Cha Cha, Argentine Tango, West Coast Swing
Our mission is to improve the quantity and quality of ballroom dance in the US.
Dear USA Dance Members and Patrons,
I hope this message finds you and yours well. I know it's been a long time since we've all danced together and we miss you all dearly. Our top priority is the safety of our dancers and our board is working to devise a safety plan that meets current safety standards. Unfortunately we simply don't feel ready to facilitate a dance yet. Eagle's Club has opened their patio to guests, but have yet to open their dance hall. We are considering options for outdoor dances, but are also in need to comply with CDC recommendations for large group gatherings, which we are currently navigating. I am hopeful that we will be ready with guidelines as they pertain to USA Dance events by July. Some considerations include:
-Sanitation supplies: PPE such as masks and gloves for organizers, disinfectants for tables and chairs and hand sanitizer.
-Increased diligence to minimize shared materials i.e. writing utensils at registration desk, for water cups, etc.
- Encouraged use of hand washing or sanitizing between dances and to stay home if feeling ill.
USA Dance socials are NOT affiliated with Eagles Club events.
