Spring Camp Cancellation Notice

Dear beloved LCFD community,

Like many dance events, the LCFD Board has carefully weighed whether it would be safe, advisable, or allowable to hold our Spring Dance Camp considering the spread of COVID-19. In light of the Governor of Connecticut’s executive order and the CDC’s recommendation against holding gatherings of 50 or more people, we have decided to cancel the 2020 LCFD Spring Dance Camp. While we had very much hoped that camp could go ahead as planned, the safety of our dance community and the wider community is our first priority, and cancelling camp is the right thing to do.

As you already know, the income and livelihood of many are being disrupted by the outbreak, including dance musicians and callers. To mitigate the impact our cancellation has on these valued members of our community, we plan to fully compensate the callers and musicians slated to perform at Spring Camp. Please consider making a donation to help cover these and other expenses related to Spring Camp. A suggested amount is $15, but we welcome all donations, large and small. Donations (tax-deductible) by check can be made out to LCFD and sent to:

  9 West St
  Cambridge, MA,  02139

Or via PayPal

Any excess donations will be added to the scholarship fund for LCFD camps.

Thank you for your understanding. If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch. The camp experience is a unique one that many of us look forward to all year, and we can’t wait to convene again when it is safe to do so! Fall Dance Camp is planned for Oct 16-18 at Camp Chimney Corners in Becket, MA.

We hope wherever you are, you can keep dancing in your own safe, socially distanced but lovingly connected way. 

With love,

LCFD Board & Camp Committee
