Brent’s Bunch Dancing Postponed to Thursday, Jan 20
Hi Brent's Bunch Members & Friends,
Happy New Year everyone!
I hope you all had a good Christmas, celebrated the holiday season as best you could under the current public health orders, and are doing well. It looks like 2022 will be another year where we will have to keep our plans flexible and have patience with the ever-changing public health landscape affecting our social, dance, and travel activities.
Dance Schedule Change
As you have likely heard, under the BC public health orders issued in late December, adult indoor individual and group fitness or exercise activities are currently not permitted. This includes participating in group exercise, fitness classes, and dance classes, and therefore includes square and round dancing. This restriction is in place until January 18, 2022, so the City of Burnaby has cancelled our rental of the Burnaby Lake Pavilion for Jan 6 and 13. If the restrictions affecting square dancing are not extended, our next scheduled dance will be Thursday, January 20. I'll let you know by email the status of this dance as soon as I know, which I assume should be at least by Jan 18.
Brent's Bunch Membership
For those that have said they would like to support the club with pre-purchased dancing membership, please hold your payment for now and let's see what happens by Jan 18. We have the option of extending our dancing through May so when we know if we can resume dancing in January I will survey our members to decide if we shorten the season or extend it into May.
Virtual ZOOM Dancing
I'd like to stay in touch and give us all chance to keep active so I will offer virtual, one or two couple dancing, via ZOOM on Thursday Jan 6 & 13. Jan 6 will have an Elvis music theme as we had planned for this week already. I'll email you details for the ZOOM dancing soon.
