We have the following criteria:We look forward to dancing with you again!
- attendees will sign a waiver (one time) which you can review on the website; and
- attendees will have immunization from COVID 19
The MkeSCD Board has decided to ease our masking requirement to “Mask Optional” in keeping with the new CDC community level guidelines. When the counties that we mostly draw from (Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Waukesha) are at “LOW” levels according to the CDC, masks will be optional. We will return to masking for all if the numbers rise to MEDIUM or HIGH. Of course, dancers are welcome to mask at any time according to their comfort.
The MkeSCD Board will maintain the vaccination and boosting requirement at this time. All dancers have shown their vaccination card and have their boosters. The board continues to being cautious with masking and vaccination to protect all dancers. We know that in Scottish Country Dance our breathing can be heavy during vigorous exercise and we cannot social distance. Thank you for dancing with us and thank you for your kind consideration of safety during our pandemic dancing!

How we structure our classes:
We initiate classes with warm ups and stretches, followed by a short focus session to improve technique. The class then divides temporarily, with newer dancers (along with a couple experienced dancers for support) learning/reviewing/improving formations whilst the more experienced dancers further develop their dancing skills as they learn/review/improve challenging formations and dances, or learn dances for upcoming events. The groups then recombine to dance one or two dances which utilize the formations previously focused on by the newer dancers. If time allows the experienced dancers then learn another challenging dance, giving the newer dancers the opportunity to observe.
