We are dancing tonight, with our Covid protocols in place. Because of the recent rise in Covid case counts, we've lowered our capacity AND have shut off the Google reg form. If you want to join us and haven't registered yet, send an email to amherstenglish at gmail dot com; I will let you know if we still have space and can let you in. Please, no walk-ins! Pre-registration is required.
