The Moving Violations Schedule

 

UPDATE

The Moving Violations are excited to invite you to register for our second dance back at the Guiding Star Grange since the Covid hiatus! See below for Sept. 17th, 2022 dance details. And the following is more about the policies the Guiding Star Grange Organizers have agreed upon as we transition back to dancing limiting the risk:

 

The Moving Violations would love to see you for our 3rd Sat. dance in Greenfield in just under a week - September 17!  We’ll have a newcomers’ workshop at 7:30 p.m. and the contra dance will run 8:00-11:00 p.m.  Adina Gordon will be down from Vermont to call!  Gender-neutral (larks and robins) terms will be used.  We're looking forward to a fun and lively night!

The pre-registration form tinyurl.com/September-17-registrationis currently open, and will close at noon on Saturday 9/17 or if the attendance cap of 150 is reached - whichever comes first. If there is still space after the form closes, we will post that on Facebook and via the PVCD email list. It will save time at the door if you upload a picture of your vax card during pre-registration.

Please read the Covid safety policies at https://tinyurl.com/GSG-Covid-Policy. All dancers and performers must provide proof of vax and boosters, and must wear N95, KN95, or KF94 masks inside at all times (aside from *briefly* lowering mask to drink water). We recommend testing prior to attending, but do not require it.

REGISTRATION: Please complete the online Registration Form to guarantee your spot! We will post here if registrations are full.

If the cap is not reached in advance, you may complete the registration form at the door with proof of vaccination/booster.

If you pre-register but for any reason are unable to attend, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. so that someone else can enjoy your spot. 

CHECK-IN will be under the portico by the back parking lot starting at 7:15pm. Pre-registration will provide for a more efficient entrance to the hall. If you did not upload your proof of vaccination, please be prepared to show your card or a photo of it at the door. Proof is required even if you have submitted/shown proof for other Greenfield dances. 

ADMISSION: $12-20 sliding scale ($10 for students and children, $8 for under 13) at the door.

COVID PRECAUTIONS: All dance series at the Guiding Star Grange have agreed to a shared Covid-19 policy, including requiring proof of vaccine + 1 booster if eligible for boosters, all dancers wearing N95/KN95/KF94 masks, exposure notification, protocols for maximizing ventilation, attendance cap of 150 or fewer, and more.  

At this dance, all performers will be masked.

The band will be checking the CDC Community Level map on Thursday at 8pm and may cancel if we feel the Covid metrics warrant it (including any contiguous county being red). Our hope and expectation is that the dance will happen as planned. In the event of cancellation, we will announce it on the band’s Facebook page, The Greenfield Dance is Awesome FB group, and by emailing those who have pre-registered.
