Coronavirus Information

Boston Swing Central has resumed our Friday dances! 

Below are our current Covid Requirements for attending a dance:

  1. We now require a booster shot of either Pfizer or Moderna for all dance attendees. If you have not yet received a booster or are not eligible, we will require that your last shot be within 6 months of the date of the dance you are attending (for Pfizer or Moderna), and 3 months for a single shot of J&J.
  2. We also require a KN95, N95 or KF94 or a surgical mask, no cloth masks or gaiters when the dance is declared “Masks Required”.  In 2023, we will host some dances where it says: “Masks Required”, we will also host some dances that are “Masks Optional”.  During a masks optional dance you can wear a cloth mask or gaiter if you like, or not wear a mask at all. 
  3. We request that all attendees who have contracted covid, wait until you feel 100% and it’s been at least 4 days before you attend a dance.  Please don’t attend a dance on the first day or two that you are feeling sort of normal.  Thanks.

We also offer a way to participate for those who cannot attend in-person dances, email info@bostonswingcentral.org and we can set you up with a virtual stream of the event in which you would like to attend.

All of the dances right now will be limited attendance capacity to allow for more space.  We also require all attendees to show proof of full vaccination and to wear masks the entire time they are in the venue (including while dancing!) if the dance is designated: “Mask Required.”  We recommend testing your mask in advance to ensure that you are able to move and breathe in it without it falling down. In addition to required masking, we will have the windows open and the fans running throughout the event.  In the winter months, it might get a little chilly in there, we recommend bringing a sweater or sweatshirt that you can add or remove as necessary.

Even though it feels like for many that the pandemic is over, we are still hearing that our friends in the swing dancing community are still getting sick as of 12/28/2022.  We believe that preventing the spread of infectious diseases is a personal responsibility we all share, don’t go out unnecessarily.  So far, these policies have kept our community dancing!

Be safe, be well and happy dancing!

And as always, let us know your questions and concerns by contacting us at info@bostonswingcentral.org.
