Hello Again, Fellow Dancers,
When we posted our COVID-19 update earlier, we did not think we would be making another announcement quite so soon. However, in our previous update we made it clear we would be closing the studio and cancelling classes in the event that major employers or institutions in the region moved to an online or work-from-home model. Yesterday, all publicly-funded schools in the province closed for three weeks and today the University of Waterloo and Wilfrid Laurier University announced they were cancelling in-person classes, assignments, and exams for the remainder of the term.
We recognize the number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Waterloo Region is still very low. However, we are aware that social dancing is a high-risk activity and we want to do what we can to protect the community. Therefore, in line with public health recommendations for social distancing, we are cancelling all upcoming events at Hepcat Swing, including classes, until further notice.
We will be offering regular updates throughout the closure, including some tips on how to work on your solo dance practice, so please stay tuned for further announcements. If you registered for this session of classes, you will be receiving an email with further instructions tomorrow.
Stay healthy and take care of one another! Hepcat Swing Board of Directors
