Public event, Everyone welcome!
As it is the holiday season, we would like to request that each dancer donates 1-2 items for the giveaway.
We request that everyone bring their own cups, plates, cutlery, etc to help minimize our environmental footprint.

Residential parking. The committee asks that if you do not have an official role in the event please park at least 2 blocks away from the building (exceptions for handicapped, of course). Thank-you. (please note that winter parking bylaws are in effect, so if it is snowing then cars will have to be moved by 1am)
