Our events require showing proof of full vaccination. You only have to do this on your first visit. Full vaccination requires getting boosters. We also weekly remind dancers that they should not come if they have any symptoms or have been exposed to people who have Covid. Masks are recommended, but optional. This update is being written to encourage dancers to feel comfortable wearing a mask at our events.
Tango’s cabeceo tradition is that eye contact plus a nod of the head seals a contract to dance a tanda. In the spirit of Tango etiquette, the right thing to do is if one of the partners is wearing a mask, the other should be prepared to wear a mask also. So, if you choose not to wear a mask you should have one handy in case the partner of your choice is wearing one.
