The Moving Violations Schedule

 

 

The Moving Violations would love to see you for our 3rd Sat. dance in Greenfield (401 Chapman Street) on Sat., Nov. 19!  We’ll have a newcomers’ workshop at 7:30 p.m. and the contra dance will run 8:00-11:00 p.m.  Lisa Greenleaf will be calling.  Gender-neutral terms (larks and robins) will be used.  We're looking forward to a fun and lively night! 

The pre-registration form at tinyurl.com/Nov-19-registration is currently open, and will close at noon on Saturday 11/19 or if the attendance cap of 150 is reached.  We will post on Facebook and via the PVCD email list to confirm there's still space after registration closes.  It will save time at the door if you upload a picture of your vaccination card during pre-registration.

The Facebook event is at https://www.facebook.com/events/522993649704788 

REGISTRATION: Please complete the online Registration Form to guarantee your spot.  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 just inside the door from 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 + bivalent booster, 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 vaccination + booster (for dancers, performers, and volunteers), all dancers wearing N95/KN95/KF94 masks, exposure notification, protocols for maximizing ventilation, attendance cap of 150 or fewer, and more.  We recommend testing prior to attending, but do not require it except for certain situations.  The full policy is athttps://tinyurl.com/GSG-Covid-Policy.  At this dance, all performers will be masked.  

Additionally, starting Nov. 15, the bivalent booster (i.e. any Covid booster received since 9/1/22) will be required at the 3rd Sat. dance along with some other Greenfield dances, as noted in the recent statement from all Greenfield organizers.  

The only exceptions to the bivalent booster requirement for this dance are (1) if it has been less than 3 months since you had Covid (please notify the organizers in advance at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if so) or (2) your primary vaccination series is so recent (less than 2 months before the dance dance date) that you are not yet eligible or a booster according to the CDC.

We've been monitoring wastewater levels, hospitalization rates, and the CDC Community Level map, and based on current data as well as the dance's protocols, we expect the dance to be held as scheduled.

See you on the dance floor!
