Welcome to Manhattan Ballroom Society

Special message about schedule changes:

Dear Friends-- 

We hope this letter finds you well.  We understand many of us are afraid with the events that are happening right now.  It seems things are spinning out of our control, and we may be feeling helpless and frightened.  We want you to know we share your concerns.   

While we would like nothing better than to have life go on as normal, we have come to the conclusion that it would be better to temporarily postpone our classes and dances until March 31.  Hopefully by then things will be a little clearer and we can reassess the situation. 

We hope to reopen for the small group classes and private lessons on Tuesdays and Wednesdays by March 31.  Please know that, as with most other venues, the custodial staff at St. Jean has stepped up sanitation procedures in an effort to ensure everyone's health and safety.  Nancy and I have also personally been wiping down high contact surfaces with disinfectant, and will continue to do so.

We apologize for any disruption or disappointment this may cause, but simply feel it's in everyone's best interest at this time to exercise an abundance of caution.  We sincerely hope all the concern and worry we are all feeling is just temporary and look forward to the day we can welcome you all back with open arms and smiling faces.

Life is beautiful and just so precious, and we all truly have so much to be thankful for.

Be well and please take care--


Stephen Dane
Executive Director
