It has been a challenge to navigate this pandemic with all of the protocols, shutdowns, and changing restrictions. At least we have managed to acquire some grants and low interest loans which are helpful to keep things afloat
With the various shutdowns, we have stopped and started group lessons a few times. We have managed to keep some private lessons going all along, plus booking an occasional reception.

Since last June I personally have had 8 "pandemic interviews" on the local TV news stations. We appreciate all that free publicity. You can see the online news articles here.

Pandemic Perspectives Cont...
Many have expressed how much they miss our bands, milongas and Blue Moon Mix dance events. We look forward to those starting back up.
Our reception schedule is quite full for 2021 as you can see here: https://www.bluemoonballroom.com/reception-calendar Wedding receptions have so many restrictions that we weren't able to host any until recently. Hopefully back to full operation soon.
We would like to thank each of you who have helped us here at the Blue Moon by taking private lessons, paying for lessons in advance, donating to this cause and staying in touch with us.
