First of all, we want to thank everyone for their support and patience in this difficult time with all the dance clubs. As one of the long-standing dance clubs in our community, I can tell you that this is unprecedented. It is hard to know when to keep things running because you all love it as much as we do. Or when our safety is at risk. Well now is that time.
Suburban Swing has decided to close its doors after many consultations with the other organizers in our community and follow suit with the group decision. This was not an easy decision but it had to be made. Dancing and the people that come is often the best part of our week.
If you have workshops you have paid for, we are working on the solution. Right now we will credit you for the next workshops when this can be offered. You will not lose the value of your expenses. We will make it right one way or another. In saying that, give us all some time to work this out.
We know you love it and we want you not to lose hope. Because of this, we have asked our most recent instructors from our events to provide online instruction for you. We ask that if there is any cost that this may incur, that you think about paying the fee. These people have dedicated their entire lives to this passion and sharing this with you. Think of the money that you would have spent at our dance clubs as an opportunity now to purchase amazing online instruction from a dance teacher that you connect with. They will remember you all for this and you will receive all the benefits of these personal passions.
There are so many instructors out there right now doing online work! Here are the following links for some of the instructors we have reached out to and there will be more added as we get them:

"So glad I went! Great Band, Great people, Great place"
"My friend and I went to the Abbotsford club tonight and we were concerned about being what looked like the two oldest people in attendance. Jason and everyone treated the both of us as equals and we had so much fun, everyone was very friendly and told us to come back. It was an amazing evening of fun, socializing and great exercise"
