…and now the recommendation from Dansportförbundet is that everything should be paused until the end of April we will do that.
Dancing comes with many positive health benefits, but when it comes to the possible spread of flu, our dance interest is not only a good thing.
We follow the local risk assessments as well as official recommendations and act accordingly.
If we only follow the recommendations of the public health authority regarding smaller events and also training specifically, we can continue with courses and social dances, but since dance is an activity with close contact and now the recommendation from Dansportförbundet is that everything should be paused until the end of April we will do that.
What happens now?
Since we are unlikely to be able to have any more courses this semester, the suggestions is that we continue to keep our spirits up with online activities as well as video clips in the groups for the various courses and then to make up for the lost courses after the summer, starting if possible already mid August.
As many factors today (30/3) are still very uncertain we are still not sure how we will solve this but are continuously working on solutions
Reduce the risk of infection and infecting!
Wash your hands frequently with soap and warm water >30s.
Avoid touching your face. Especially the eyes.
Cover your mouth/nose when coughing/sneezing**
Avoid dancing altogether in the case of flu or cold symptoms.
Stay home if you have recently traveled in infected areas or otherwise have been in contact with people who might carry COVID-19.
** The general tip about using the elbow may not be the best thing in combination with social dancing, but still much better than coughing/sneezing straight out. A handkerchief is of course best, but using your hands that are immediately washed works as an emergency solution.
Tonight our friends at Cats’ Corner kick off their Wednesday Night Hop and Monday Night Swing is pack on Monday. Both include a beginners’ Lindy to send all your friends to or join yourself to get started.
Please note that everyone that signs-up the first four days has the same chance to get a spot as we will raffle the queue.
IMPORTANT! If you sign up for several courses but only want to take one of them you have to make a note of that in the comment field of your registrations. You are not allowed to hold on to one spot while waiting in line to get another.
Ditt företag är berättigat att ge dig en skattefri personalvårdsförmån som ofta kallas friskvårdsbidrag. Ett bidrag för kostnaden att delta i fysiska aktiviteter som t.ex. dans och däribland såklart swingdanser som Lindy Hop, Balboa och Jazzdans. En möjlighet som de allra flesta företag tar till vara.
Kvitto på swingdanskurs
Se nu bara till att skriva ut ett kvitto och lämna inn på jobbet. Kvittot får du automatiskt på mail när vi registrerat din betalning och kan även hämtas här.
Klart att Lindy Hop räknas som friskvård!
Har tidigare hänt att företag påstår att dans inte räknas men numera står motionsdans t.o.m. specifikt med i skatteverkets definition.
Hur mycket får man maximalt i friskvårdsbidrag?
Det finns från skattemyndigheten ingen övre gräns så länge samma villkor gäller för alla anställda. Det är med andra ord din arbetsplats som bestämmer hur mycket pengar du kan få tillbaka.

With uncertainties surrounding venues Gunhild Carling made the choice to not arrange her big Stockamöllan Swing & Jazz Festival this summer, 2017. Hopefully it will be back next summer, 15-17th of June 2018.
