Covid-19 Operating Procedures and Conditions March 2021


DuPage county is at Phase 4 for Covid-19 Pandemic operating procedures.

We will be doing our best to keep our attendees as safe as possible during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Face Coverings:  All attendees must wear a mask over their mouth AND nose at all time unless you are seated AND eating or drinking.  Face shields alone are not acceptable.

Temperature Checks:  All attendees will have their temperature checked at the front door.  If you have a temperature you will be denied entry.

Waiver Questions:  All attendees are required to complete the waiver online at the time of registration.  There are Covid-19 questions designed to keep everyone safe.

Pre-Registration:  We want everyone to be comfortable with their dancing experience.  To adhere to capacity restrictions, registration will be done online.  We can only admit up to 50 attendees at a time. If you would like to simply show up you may, but if we are at capacity you will have to wait until someone leaves for the evening to enter.  (Many people do leave soon after lessons are completed).  For pre-registration, upon arrival you simply give us your name and we will cross you off the list.

Group Classes:  All attendees have 2 options.

  1. You can rotate within the group class.
  2. You can stay with your partner only and not rotate.

Open Dancing:  All attendees have 2 options:

  1. Dancing only with your partner. We will section off space on the floor for you and your partner only.
  2. Dancing with the larger group. This is regular open dancing with others.  At any time, an attendee may refuse to dance with anyone they feel uncomfortable with.

Cancellation Policy:  There are no refunds.

Each registration is a spot taken that cannot be used for someone else.  Please contact Kenneth Dillard at for questions about cancellations.

Contact Tracing:  Each person who registers provides their name and date of attendance should the need for contact tracing arise due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Sanitization:  All surfaces are routinely sanitized at least daily and more frequently at the discretion of the Downer’s Sand Club operators.

Hand Washing:  We encourage all attendees to wash their hands with hand sanitizer or soap and water frequently.
