RE: South Bay Dance Fling 2020
We hope that everyone is well and that everyone has been doing their best to hang in there during this very hard time in all of our lives.
First off, we would like to start off by saying Thank-You to everyone that has supported us after it was announced that we would be the new directors of the South Bay Dance Fling. It meant the world to us, knowing that so many people were in our corner and excited to see South Bay Dance Fling continue. We had big plans this year and were really looking forward to a fun weekend with many of our dance friends. But, because of COVID-19 and all the restrictions that are in place in the State of California, the County of Santa Clara, and the City of San Jose, we regret to have to announce that South Bay Dance Fling must cancel this year.
It is very sad to have to make this announcement but, understand this was a very difficult decision to make. We waited for as long as we could and have been working with the hotel to see what our options would be and even if we could have the event. But, with the event only 2 months away, not having any idea when things will relax and the nature of how dance events work, it would be difficult to stay within compliance of all the regulation, and just could not be done safely.
Are number one concern is keeping everyone healthy, happy, and safe!
Please do not be too upset, because this now means that 2021 will be bigger and better than ever! This means we have well over a year to get everything ready. We will still have our UCWDC country competition, CTST Jack and Jill, WSDC Jack and Jill, Line Dance workshops/dance rooms, Social dancing and tons of fun.
So please put South Bay on your calendar, Labor Day, September 2nd-6th 2021, at the Double Tree by Hilton Hotel San Jose.
If you have any questions about this year’s registration, next year, or anything else, please do not hesitate to reach out to us or visit our website www.SBDF.dance .
Please keep your head up, stay healthy and safe and before you know it, all of us will be back on the dance floor!
