VDC UPDATE RE: COVID-19

To our VDC Family,

We want to thank you for your patience during these unprecedented times. We are continually monitoring the state of COVID-19 in Canada and are making informed decisions on each individual event as information becomes available.

Providing a safe and healthy environment for all dancers and dance families is our top priority. We are assessing each competition on a weekly basis, keeping our pulse on the most up-to-date guidelines and protocols and ensuring we take action to help flatten the curve of COVID-19. It is our social responsibility to abide by the Ministry of Health recommendations and Canadian Government restrictions. Our decisions are made specific to each competition location and applicable provincial guidelines while prioritizing the health, safety and well-being of all patrons, staff and VDC dance community.
