Covid Policy

The world and dance communities have reopened, and the reality now is that COVID-19 seems with us for the long-haul. Thankfully we have seen less severe illness with newer strains, especially to those vaccinated. We want to create a space where all members of our community will feel comfortable dancing. We want to keep anyone who contracts COVID-19 as a result of this event to avoid spreading their illness to family, friends, and the wider public. And we want to make sure that Breakaway dance attendees are cognizant of the risks inherent in attending our events.

Our policy at this time is:


There is an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 or other illnesses, in any public space where people are present. By attending The Breakaway, you agree that entry is at your own risk and you voluntarily and expressly assume all risks associated with entry. We have put in place policies and preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19, but cannot guarantee that exposure to or infection with COVID-19 will not occur while at The Breakaway. You must assess your own risk tolerance and if you decide to register/attend, you will agree to not hold The Breakaway or any of its staff liable for contracting any illness. A full refund (minus fees) or full credit will be available for anyone who chooses to stay home as a result of illness.
