Southern Oregon Contra Dance (SOCD)



SOCD Schedule Postponed - News v221011

Our all volunteer SOCD Board group met recently (2022-Oct) and decided to keep our Dance Schedule on hold.

The two main drivers for this decision are:

  1. Personal Health Concerns, for our board members, as well for our entire community.

  2. Financial. The economics (mostly due to insurance costs) for sponsoring a limited dance schedule are not very good.

For Queries & Comments please use our Contact Us page.

Being able to safely host dances, while also meeting the health preferences of all members of our dance community, continues to be at the center of our decision making process.

Feedback is encouraged.

(Filling out the "Online Contact Form" is the best option.)

We also make more detailed announcements through our Newsletter on these matters.

We wish everyone Happiness & Health. Hope to see you again soon.
