Hello Desert City Swing dance family!!!
We are so excited to see you all in September for DCS 2021!! We hope everyone is staying safe & healthy and since this is a priority for us all, here is our latest update:
DCS 2021 Guidelines & Additional Safety Precautions:
1. DCS & The AZ Grand Resort will be acting in accordance with the AZCDC: If the CDC issues a mandate, DCS will also issue a mandate; If the CDC issues recommendations, DCS will also issue the same recommendations. In addition, DCS will provide what is feasible to do so, as well as some added safety precautions.
1a. We recommend everyone getting a negative Covid test within 72 hours prior to attending DCS.
1b. Masks & sanitizer will be provided in multiple places in the ballroom and @ registration desks. The Az Grand Resort will also provide sanitizer stations throughout the hotel: @ the lobby, by the elevators, in the conference centers, and in the guest room buildings.
1c. Temperature checks will be available upon entering the ballroom.
1d. Workshops will be split for Rotating & Non-Rotating.
1e. Additional wrist ban/apparel sticker system will be in place for some additional options of safety and comfort.
( I.e. )
• RED- 🚫 NO Hugs, nor asking to dance.
• YELLOW- Please ask, as different choices may apply for various reasons.
• GREEN- 👍🏽 Hugs & asking to dance are OK.
Collectively, as a group, we can all do our best to keep our weekend safe & fun, while complying with the CDC. We prefer being inclusive of everyone and their choices, so we welcome all feedback/suggestions and if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
We didn't expect to see DCS reservations be the same as previous years, so we are beyond grateful to be able to see you all again!! We will continue to monitor the current conditions & will update as needed, as well as inform when it is our "Final Update" prior to the event.
Until then, stay safe, informed, mutually mindful, and appreciative of one another. We all have so much love & appreciation for dance and all the wonderful people we have met along our independent journeys! So we are all looking forward to our adored community, moving together to preserve & enhance, the precious connection we all have with each other through West Coast Swing. ☯️
An event that is a combination of dance and vacation. Join the fun with us as we experience this EPIC event. Learn all day, dance all night, inspiring competitions, incredible resort, pool side fun and relaxation. All in one!!!
