DANCE TOGETHER SAFELY
From Bob Becker, a local West Coast swing/country dancer:
1-WEAR A PLASTIC FACE SHIELD attached to a clear eyeglass frame (See photo here.) - covers your whole face, lightweight, flexible, so you can get your heads close together even for Argentine tango!!, easier to breathe than under a small mask, your breath is exhaled down, no straps or headbands. see your partner's face. (Not 100% safe, nothing is,) Find online - www.amazon.com/s?k=face+shield+with+glasses or E-Bay.com, $4-8 depending on quantity you buy.
2.-USE HAND SANITIZER EACH TIME YOU ENTER the dance floor room even
after going to the lobby, restroom, or outside (hosts should provide bottles).
3-SHOWER, WASH HAIR / BEARD, put on CLEAN CLOTHES before arriving.
4-DANCE HOSTS : check temperatures with a thermometer “gun,”
keep a written list of all attendees, sell shields and masks.
Please discuss this idea with dance instructors/ hosts. (see lists on
www.lynnesdancenews.com). Or rent a space and host your own dance party!!
Let's get dancing! Thank you. -from Bob Becker, your fellow dancer, 612-964-1801
