Everyone attending our dances is required to show valid proof of at least 2 Covid-19 vaccinations.
There will be no exceptions allowed for any reason.
We are also asking everyone at the dance to wear a mask that covers both nose and mouth
and stays in place while dancing. We will have extra masks at the door if you need one.
Although this is currently not a BC health requirement, we have a number of community members
who are immunocompromised or in an older age group.
We do not want to cause any risk to our friends.

Vancouver English Country Dance events are held at two venues:
We dance on designated Sunday afternoons/evenings, with a short break at half-time.
Admission is $15.
Dances are led by Heather Webster, and occasional guest callers from out of town.
If you're new to English Country Dance, we strongly encourage you to arrive in time for an introductory session that starts 15 minutes before the dance.
If you're interested in calling or playing in the open stage band at one of our dances, contact Heather Webster at [email protected].
