In connection with the development of the Coronavirus/COVID-19 we receive increasing questions whether the Association will cancel events and dance activities. We like to comment as follows:

The decision of holding or cancelling dance activities of our member clubs is not within the responsibility of the EAASDC. On one side we are not the organizer of the dance activities and on the other side we do not have the necessary professional knowledge to direct these kind of actions. We recommend to watch the reporting news, specially from the Federal Ministry of Health, and follow the federal and local official advices and directives. Also we recommend to our member clubs to place actual information about club arrangements in reference to the virus on their web side, so all dancers receive knowledge. As long as dance activities are not blocked or cancelled a participation is up to the decision of each individual himself.

If the EAASDC has any further actual Info and notice of general importance for dancers and clubs we will publish it on this side.

We wish all infected people a soon recovery and that all others will be spared, as well as we hope that this virus will disappear soon.
