Covid-19 Status

Little Rock, like the rest of the world, has been intimately affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
As conditions change, and new guidance is forthcoming from relevant sources, the decision to proceed with dances will be reviewed weekly, with an eye towards reestablishing our collective passion of social dancing.

Any changes to this status will be reflected here, in our mailing list, and on our social media accounts.
We thank you for your support during this unprecedented time, as we work to maintain our payments on necessary expenses.
Contributions to the operational costs are very welcome and can be made online, or by by mail via a check payable to “CADA” at BLS Social Dance Association, PO Box 21083, Little Rock, AR 72211

  • News for July, 24th 2020

    Hello BLS Members,
    We will be dancing this Friday night, July 24th.
    We will dance under the same guidelines as our July 10th dance.  We will have temperature check and sign-in upon arrival.  As you are aware, Governor Hutchinson has issued an executive order regarding the wearing of masks.  As at our July 10th dance, we ask that you wear masks when dancing with a partner from outside your household.   We ask that you social distance at your tables and seating once inside the ballroom and frequently wash your hands or use hand sanitizer.    

    This Friday night our lesson will be Cha-Cha from 7pm – 7:30pm.Rick & Sarah Pinedo will be our dance instructors.Art Hughes will be our DJ.We will dance from 7:30pm – 9:30pm.

    If you are still not comfortable coming out to dance, we totally understand.    We will keep the dance floor warm until you are ready to join us again. 
    We look forward to the time we ALL get to dance together again without restriction or concern.   
    We are still responsible to pay our rent each month whether we dance or not.    If you would like to support us virtually, it would be greatly appreciated.
