Hey people of Cottontails!
We are inviting our members to attend an online extraordinary yearly meeting where we will choose a new board for Cottontails on Wednesday the 28th of October at 19:00. We already have a new board ready to be made official, so we hope that you can join us in this meeting to make it so. If you payed a membership fee last semester, you’re welcome to vote in this meeting. All you have to do to join the meeting is join our video call by going to https://meet.jit.si/cottontailsmeet in your browser.
Alternatively there is an app «Jitsi Meet» on both Google Play and the App Store you can use on your phone. Once you get that, you can join the «cottontailsmeet» room. (we’re trying out this platform because it’s free, unlimited and doesn’t require account)
We hope to see you in the meeting room.Best wishes form The Cottontails (soon to be) Board
Dear members of the Cottontails!
As you might have noticed us in the Cottontails board have been busy figuring out how to run the club and staying connected in our dancing community under this pandemic we’re now facing. We’re all very sad that our last semester got interrupted so abruptly by covid-19, and as a volunteer organisation we are dependent on our members to be able to stay floating. We know that none of our members got what they paid for in terms of dancing classes, which means we will refund the lost classes. We humbly ask you to consider not to ask for a refund, but rather accept a free semester of classes when we are able to start normal dancing classes again. Nevertheless this time can be economical challenging for many, and therefore we also understand if you ask for a refund for the lost classes. If you wish to get a refund we ask you to send us an email or a massage on Facebook and we will give you back the money worth for the classes that got canceled.
When in comes to this fall we won’t have any regular classes, but we hope to open up for self practice as soon as we can. We have to follow the guidelines and restrictions that we have been given about covid, which means that everyone needs to stay at least one meter apart at all times – which means only solo dancing for now, washing hands before entering the room and stay home when feeling sick or having symptoms of covid-19. Also we will register every member that is present each time and ask that you sign up beforehand (we will give further information about this) to make sure we are not too many people at the venue at once. More information about how we plan to stay connected through the dance we all love are soon to come, whenever the situation allows us to start up slowly again!
But for now, you all better stay healthy and keep dancing at home!
We are looking forward to seeing you all again soon!
The Cottontails Board
The Cottontails er en danseklubb i Bergen som driver med amerikanske jazzdanser fra første halvdel av 1900-tallet, som Lindy Hop, Balboa og Charleston. Vi holder kurs og sosialdans ukentlig, samt helgekurs og fester.
Vårt hovedfokus er på sosialdans, og rett og slett å ha det gøy når man danser
