Welcome to CFOOTMAD, your information source for contra and traditional dancing and music around Boulder, Denver and the Front Range.
Dances Again Cancelled
The CFOOTMAD board has, reluctantly, decided to suspend our contra dances until COVID case rates and test positivity rates improve in our area.
Earlier this fall, the BOD and dance organizers met to determine metrics for when to suspend dances. Unfortunately, multiple counties in the Denver metro area have now exceeded those metrics in both case rates and test positivity rates. While we believe that requiring masks and vaccination at our dances helps keep our community safe, the data is currently unclear on the possibility of transmitting COVID even with those precautions. Given the rising numbers of infections and hospitalizations in our area, we have decided that it is safer not to hold dances at this time. The BOD and dance organizers will continue working together to make sure we’re using the right metrics to make these decisions, and we’ll share updates with the CFOOTMAD community.
Our policy is to suspend dances when case rates in the host county (usually Boulder) or two or more neighboring counties are orange or red in one-week positivity rates or test positivity percentage. You can see the data we're using at https://covid19.colorado.gov/data/covid-19-dial-dashboard.
We’re looking forward to dancing with you again as soon as it’s safe in our community.
