Following the guidelines of the CDC and our local government mandates, the Denver
Turnverein will be closed for everything except building maintenance and repair until further
notice. This includes all dances, events, meetings, and lessons and they are saying perhaps
the shutdown will last until May.
When we get the go ahead and can reopen, we will let you all know. Dancing is a huge part of
our lives and we all miss it terribly, but in these trying and anxious times we want to wait until
conditions are safe.
We strongly encourage and thank you for any considered donations at this time. We do have
on-going expenses but are doing everything is our power to minimize those.
We look forward to resuming our dances and events just as soon as possible and will try to be
patient, hoping this health crisis will pass soon. It will be a pleasure to see you all on the dance
In the meantime, dance at home. After all, dancing makes us happy and keeps us healthy.
Take care and we will dance together soon.
