Attendees may need to wear masks inside the building and may be asked to remain socially distant. Visitors may be limited to the dancer and 1 adult or guardian. Dancers with medical conditions may remove their masks while dancing (have a doctor's note if this accommodation is needed), and then put them on again as soon as they are finished dancing. *We recommend dancers practice in their masks to prepare for the feis.
