For cancellation updates due to inclement weather and/or coronavirus,

   Important Notice
   As you know, we are facing the spread of the Covid-19 coronavirus disease and need to take timely, responsible measures.

  In line with the Centers for Disease Control's (CDC) recommendations to practice social distancing to slow the spread of the disease, to protect our health, and to avoid overwhelming our country's health care system, many dance venues and special dance events, such as SOS Spring Safari and Louise Pyles' Special World of Dance have been cancelled. Similarly, we believe it is prudent to cancel DCHDC dance venues at this time:

 ** The April monthly dance at the KOC Boswell Hall, and Tuesday and Wednesday night weekly dances at Alibi's and Glory Days Grill are cancelled through April.

   The Board of Directors will continue to monitor the situation and will notify you of any further changes. 

  The following is a source for current information about the situation:

  For updates about DCHDC activities, please call the club hotline at 301-460-0800, select "inclement weather." Updates will be listed on this website and on our Facebook page:
  DC Hand Dance Club Est.1994. 
 If you wish to join that Facebook page, please send a request.

   Hopefully, the need for these measures won't last long and we will be back dancing soon.

  Thank you & stay safe,
  DCHDC Board of Directors
