Relax, please. Everything’s going to be fine. God’s got this; we just need to be smart. 

Just as an update, in case you haven’t heard, Wheaton, Warrenville, and Bloomingdale Park Districts have closed until further notice, so those classes will not be meeting through Easter. Organizations will be re-evaluating in April. Visit www.dancewithjanet.com/calendar for the most accurate info.

The parameters appear to be that we should reduce our gatherings of large crowds of people. Since we are a relatively small group, getting together to dance should be no problem. Therefore, I present to you the new normal for the rest of the month of March:

We will be based out of the Geneva American Legion, 22 S. 2nd St. in Geneva. We will meet there for classes and dances. Hand sanitizer will be available for your use. Before and after each dance and class, I will personally sanitize the door knobs, light switches, tables, and restrooms; basically high traffic areas. No refreshments will be provided; BYOB, but drink responsibly.

– Tomorrow’s BRIDGE dance is ON, 2-5 pm, at the Geneva American Legion, $8 cover. I will host.

– The NEXT TWO TUESDAYS (3/173/24) are ON at the Geneva American Legion, 7-10, $8 cover. 

– Monday’s Beginner 2 and Intermediate classes are ON but at the Geneva American Legion, regular times; $8 per class. 

– Wednesday’s Beginner 2 and Intermediate classes are ON but VIRTUALLY ONLY. You will have to watch them from home if you want to attend live or watch them later if you purchase the class and get the recording, which will come to you by Friday. The internet connection at the American Legion is not strong enough to hold a live class and broadcast it. $8 per class; you CAN use your Dance With Janet card (enter the expiration date of 12/99 and the three-digit code of 111). See www.dancewithjanet.com/virtualclass to register; I’ll be teaching TRAGEDY by Lynn Card in all classes this week.

– Thursday’s regular Geneva American Legion classes are ON, and we MAY move the Attic class to the American Legion at 6 pm but I do not know that quite yet; $8 cover. 

– Friday’s dance at the Geneva American Legion with DJ Jeff WILL CONTINUE as scheduled, 7-10; $8 cover.

INSTRUCTOR TRAINING is still ON for next weekend.  I WILL BE ATTENDING Katie’s dance at Heart and Sole tonight as planned, at 8:15. She assures me that we will party hard instead of worrying hard!

Again, I will have hand sanitizer available for your use and will sanitize high traffic areas before and after classes and dances. We typically get groups of about 35, so this plan should work and we should all be able to dance still, in relative safety. Stay home if you feel sick! Stay safe and stay well!

Love ya!
Janet
