As the country reopens, I encourage you to consider how you will respond, and what your parameters are.  Different people have different opinions, which we will be witnessing very obviously in the weeks ahead.  Please decide where you stand, and accept that others may not agree.  America was founded on the freedom to have our own opinions, and respect our own AND others’.  Let’s remember that heritage instead of engaging in “I’m right and you’re wrong” conversations.

I plan on dancing outside in groups of 10 or less, without a mask, as soon as we are given the go-ahead.  The outdoors gives us space between each other and is its own safety net, and the increasing temperatures are our ally.  Additionally, I will see people as they want to be seen, with or without a mask, as they feel comfortable.  I still advocate getting your sleep, taking your vitamins, exercising (I’m working on that!) and eating well.  A healthy body is our best defense against illness, including the COVID-19 virus.

To attend any 7 pm class, please register by 5 pm at https://www.dancewithjanet.com/virtual on the day of the event.  You will receive TWO Zoom links to attend on the day of the class/dance, one in the afternoon and one at 6 pm CST.  Please check your spam, trash, or junk mail, as these emails are sent 100% of the time.  Unfortunately they get stuck in cyberspace sometimes.  The recording will always be sent to you for any class you registered for; I encourage you to dance to it.  It’s always synchronized and perfect!  To find when your favorite dance was taught, visit the Virtual Index spreadsheet, located in your Members Only area, at the top of the list of dances.

Love ya!
Janet
