I received a request for assistance with organizing a contradance in Long Island, for
Grace Christian Academy, in the next month or so.
I explained(1) That I live in Rochester NY, 7 hours drive (at least), and there is local
talent that would be better suited;(2) That all contradances in the country have been
closed because one could not *design* a more effective way to transmit Covid virus among a
crowd of people.
I voiced appreciation for their wanting to include Contradance in the school program, and
was hoping that someone on this serve-list, who is more proximate to the school, could
follow up with the woman.
We've had some successful contact with local colleges here, and would recommend it for
Please PM me if you are interested in the contact information, for the purpose of FUTURE
outreach.(specifically, I won't pass along the information if your only purpose in
contacting her is to chastise her.My explanation of the situation should be sufficient to
let her know the pandemic-related concerns.)
