We are waiting to see what happens with COVID-19 before deciding whether we will hold the next Victorian Ball!
These are very much unprecedented times. In the wake of COVID-19, Triangle Vintage Dance will not be active again for some while until social dancing is safe again. We miss enjoying the dancing, music and costumes of the Victorian and Ragtime eras. While we have always tried to make our dances accessible to newcomers and anyone in the community, we can to do better. We commit to actively dismantling racism, sexism and homophobia and are open to feedback about ways we could do better. We stand against all forms of racism. We support Black Lives Matter and stand with protests and direct action for change. Dismantling racism is a lifelong process, and we commit to listening, learning, and activism. May we all dance together in a COVID-free world soon.
