Salsa suspended.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: CLASSES AND EVENTS SUSPENDED

It is with much regret that Casa Cubana is suspending its weekly Thursday night salsa classes and social dancing at the Italian Club, from and including this Thursday the 19th. Salsa at Salamanca every Saturday outside Machine Café is also suspended, as are the Launceston road trip and transition block course, until further notice.

With the current COVID-19 virus around the world and now in Tasmania, our feeling is that we all need to act to reduce the spread of this infection. For a virus that is spread by respiratory droplets, contact from surfaces and clothing, and from close proximity with other people, salsa dancing would pose a high risk of transmission if and when it comes into our midst. National guidelines recommend keeping your distance and not meeting in large groups. Suspending classes is one extra step we can take to help keep our community safe.

Although we will miss dancing with you all, our hope is that we can stay safe and resume dancing once this whole thing blows over. Keep an eye out on our facebook page for when things resume…..hopefully in the not too distant future!

Coronavirus – salsa still on!

Smilie, Smiley, Emoji, Mouth Guard, Respiratory Mask

Some of you may be wondering what the status is of Thursday night salsa given the current situation with coronavirus.

Casa Cubana takes the health of of our dancers seriously, and as such we are monitoring the situation closely. At the moment the current advice is that public events should proceed, but it is strongly recommended that people that are unwell should not attend. This is particularly so for people who have recently travelled from overseas.

So on that note, classes and social dancing will continue as normal until further notice. We ask that people heed the advice above as well as exercise good hygiene practices by washing their hands with soap and  water before and after class, and after dancing with anyone socially.

See you on the dance floor!
