I'm taking a break from dance until covid-19 passes
Of those respondents who have elected to take a break during the covid siege, do any of you think there is a general sense that social dancing will or not be affected for some time to come  especially with the rise in variants ?

I'm dancing, but only within small groups that I trust and where most are vaccinated.
I'm still dancing and not utilizing precautions
I'm fully vaccinated and just started dancing again. I'm not using precautions when I dance, but I am when I go shopping.

I'm about to get my second shot tomorrow, but will continue using precautions until we are in a vastly improved situation.  I'm trying to view mask-wearing while dancing as an endurance training opportunity - cheaper than training in Utah!

I have had both Pfizer vaccinations and it has been well over 21 days. I am feeling healthy and relieved.
I'm still dancing but utilizing precautions
Keeping the number of people I come in close contact with very limited. I've likely already had COVID back in late March 2020 when it was hard to get tested unless you were in really bad shape. I've also had the first of 2 vaccine shots. Looking forward to being fully vaccinated.

Still dancing...
I'm still dancing but utilizing precautions
Been taking private lessons and trying to remember the things I learned my first year of dancing. Covid shut down was right at the beginning of what would have been my 2nd year.

I only wear a mask when I absolutely have to and I will not be getting the gene modification treatment that does absolutely nothing to prevent the China virus nor keep you from infecting others if you have it.
DancePartner CommentAfter the recommended 2 doses and 2-week waiting period, the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines have been shown to be 95% effective against contracting Covid-19, and 100% effective against hospitalization and death from the virus. Current studies show that a vaccinated person is 75% less likely to spread the virus.

I’m training with my dancing partner and attend small meetings of dancers

I'm still dancing but utilizing precautions
I'm vaccinated. Compliant with all covid protocols. Looking for a practice partner. I have a small floor space we can dance on in my home. Cannot wait!! Have danced a lot at home and outside 6’ apart. Been studying private flamenco classes during the plague as I love it and it literally keeps me on my toes, keeps my dance spirit up, strengthening and good for technique in general as it is so complex.

Can't wait until we are all immunized.
I'm still dancing but utilizing precautions
I have received both doses of the Moderna vaccine!
I'm still dancing but utilizing precautions
Due to living alone and not having a designated dance partner I have not been dancing for almost a year. I am now seeking a private dance partner rather than continue to wait for social dance to start up again.
I'm still dancing but utilizing precautions
I’m taking private dance lesson in a dance studio . Since day 1 of pandemic I’ve been practicing at home .
I'm still dancing but utilizing precautions
I love dancing! I’ve dancing at home by myself, staying active and happy!
I'm taking a break from dance until covid-19 passes
My answer isn't given as an option. I'm beyond ready for this COVID conspiracy to be over because no one else seems to want to dance in person.
I'm taking a break from dance until covid-19 passes
Would be dancing if I could find a partner who dances only with me.
I'm still dancing but utilizing precautions
I feel safe with covid if all precautions taken.
I'm taking a break from dance until covid-19 passes
I know several who kept dancing without precautions and got wicked sick. Not me. Not willing to risk permanent lung damage or worse.
I'm taking a break from dance until covid-19 passes
It’s hard to believe it’s been more than a year since COVID halted social dance. I’ve missed dancing more than anything else and I’m sooo ready to make up for lost time!
I'm still dancing but utilizing precautions
would continue if I had a partner but using safety precautions are important to me. I have only been practicing by myself in the mean time.
I'm still dancing but utilizing precautions
I am only dancing with a small group of people I know that are using the same degree of caution on and off the dance floor. And that has become rare as the cold weather hit. I will receive my 2nd vaccine in a week which I am grateful for.
I'm still dancing but utilizing precautions
I limit my dance partners and usually do not change partners at a group lesson or at a dance.
I'm still dancing but utilizing precautions
got the vaccine last month, I'm back in with precautions
I'm still dancing but utilizing precautions
Still dancing in private studio having private lessons.
I'm still dancing but utilizing precautions
I would continue dancing if I had one partner to practice and dance with. I don't want to switch partners in a social setting.
I'm still dancing and not utilizing precautions
I do what I always did, clean my hands, which is proven effective. As a man and as a lead, I always respect what my partner withholds. But myself am an athlete, and I will not dance nor live without oxygen. If I hid from life, merely because I were afraid of death, I would be irresolute as a man, and a puny tango.
I'm still dancing but utilizing precautions
Not doing any dance socials, I would if I had just 1 partner to dance multiple dances no switching. Still taking private lessons but we both wash our hands, do a temperature check and wear mask. I get covid tested before and after my lessons to help make me feel better about it cause its still a bit scary
I'm taking a break from dance until covid-19 passes
I’m fully vaccinated and am dancing again

I danced a few of times over the summer and fall at outside events. Don't feel comfortable just yet. With restrictions being eased, I may venture out, but will definitely be taking precautions.
I'm still dancing but utilizing precautions
Am taking Private Lesson. Would be willing to have ONE practice partner that could do several dances with. I'm good with one partner as long as we are both being cautious in our private lives.
I'm still dancing but utilizing precautions
I take on line lessons (KOROS app) and practice regularly at home. I can't wait to dance at studio with a partner. Happy dancing! Stay safe

Not by choice.
I'm taking a break from dance until covid-19 passes
Zoom classes for ballroom and Argentine Tango are keeping me going!
I'm still dancing but utilizing precautions
Dancing in a local studio and taking precautions. We wear masks and one of us wears gloves. Not ideal but allows us to dance and practice safely.
I'm taking a break from dance until covid-19 passes
There are no dance opportunities here local. The Governor has shut all public dance venues, and most restaurants down tight. I am getting real tired of this isolation. There is some dancing across the border around Vancouver, Canada, but, the borders shut tight too, Bad deal.
I'm still dancing but utilizing precautions
Taking classes as locally allowed (in Germany, federal state Baden-Württemberg)) in special settings with keeping distance, no exchange of partners. No social dancing allowed anyway, but practice evenings with only 10 couples (Argentine tango!), sometimes each dancing in their own square. During the new in-part lockdown since November all dancing schools closed, but one can hire all the room for one couple for an hour or more. Dancing and practising there and mostly at home with dance partners, strictly limiting to one dance partner and from time to time dancing with some other with awareness to Covid-19.
I'm still dancing and not utilizing precautions
I have a personally designed mask holder which is a plastic form supporting N95 so it doesn't collapse when you take a deep breath! When used with coffee filter to absorb sweat and exhaled moisture to preserve N95 which is reusable!
I'm still dancing but utilizing precautions
I have my own small studio which is also my office at home. It is sufficient for 4 people comfortably depending on the routine. I have 4 people in my group who rehearse and perform with me in small local community dance events.
I'm still dancing but utilizing precautions
I did a few dances in the past 2 months with one partner. Masks and precautions were followed. Felt pretty safe . Looking to find a practice/dance partner willing to use precautions to take lessons with and attend dances in a safe environment.
I'm still dancing but utilizing precautions
We have several places we dance socially outside - I wear a mask always.
I'm taking a break from dance until covid-19 passes
Unfortunately I will have to avoid dance classes until Covid19 is over. But I'm open to learning dance routines over webcam, until we could take dance classes together.
I'm still dancing but utilizing precautions
Not social dancing much, but taking a few lessons with precautions. Socializing with dance friends to stay together. We all miss dancing.
