Classes have now been back for a couple of months, and we have had our price rise. Thanks everyone for your understanding, as it was necessary for our survival as an organisation.
There are going to be a few disruptions over the next Month due to Johnathon requiring surgery. He is needing to have his kidney removed (the other one is fine) as it has signs of potential cancer and this is to prevent it from spreading. He will be requiring 5 weeks of recovery, so everyone is stepping up to fill in as many of his classes as possible. Some others will be temporarily suspended until Johnathon returns. Some of these fill ins require a chain of changes to get get the right level instructor in the right place at the right time. Some of them also require slight time changes.
On top of that,our first Grandchild is due on 6 th April in Melbourne, so Liz and I are planning to go over there the day after for a couple of days, and then Liz will be spending a week or so there a few weeks later,once the parents are settled in.
We have also noticed that,due to high Covid cases here in Adelaide,that many people are imposing voluntary self isolation,and avoiding activities like line dancing. This is very frustrating for us,whilst I understand the fear,but we have been trying to keep struggling classes going, so they will be there when everyone decides to return.
Now is the time that we have to pull the plug on those classes, as we just don't have the finances or instructors available to keep them going. I have detailed the changes below. If one of your classes is closed, or temporarily suspended, please explore the alternatives out there.
Socials are still running with the next one tomorrow (Sunday 27 th March).

COVID Dancer Density Restrictions
There are no longer any density requirements. We can have as many people in class as is practical. We still require masks while not dancing, social distancing of chairs (and the people in them LOL), contact tracing, and still require you to be double vaccinated (or more). These restrictions may change in the near future, and we will let you know when that happens.

HOEDOWNS FOR COUNTRY TOWNS
A couple of line dancers are travelling the Country introducing line dancing to regional communities and raising money for charity. Here is a non active link to their information if you are interested in what they are doing.
One of the girls Claire has been dancing here in Adelaide with us until a couple of weeks ago. We wish them all the best on their endeavors.
