Colvin Run Dancers

July 5, 2021

Dear Dancers,


Yes, it's true!!  We are so excited to tell you that we plan to resume dancing at Colvin Run with a Grand Reopening Dance on Saturday, September 18, 2021 at 8:00 PM. This dance will be free of charge in appreciation for all our wonderful volunteers, donors, and dancers who have been patiently waiting for this day.  All genres of music will be played and will be DJ'd by the talented Ed Cottrell.  No dance lesson will be provided that evening, just lots of dancing from 8:00 - 11:30 PM.

The board has organized a plan for reopening that will ensure the community's health and well-being when you dance at Colvin Run.  Dances will be open to vaccinated people ONLY.  When you arrive at the Grand Reopening Dance, you must present your proof of vaccination card.  Once this has been checked at the door, you will be placed on a list of vaccinated dancers, and you will not have to bring your card again.  After the Grand Reopening on September 18, 2021, all our regularly scheduled dances will resume and will be posted on the Colvin Run website calendar at  Dances are for vaccinated dancers only. 

At this time, in an abundance of caution, we will not be providing snacks.  Water bottles and a water dispenser will be provided.

We have been eagerly looking forward to this day for more than a year!  We are more than ready to welcome our Colvin Run family of dancers back to enjoy the things we love about Colvin Run:  the music, dancing and friendship at our Happy Place!

We owe a great debt of gratitude to our volunteers who have faithfully given many hours of hard work to enhance, upgrade and beautify many areas of the Dance Hall, and to our incredible donors who have so generously contributed financial support during this long lockdown period.  

See you on the dance floor in September!
