[> Subject: It's really none of your business, but yes, dancers have the option to do remote (when attending feiseanna outside NE) or in person (once they have quarantined). Our TC's take safety very seriously and to come on here and assume anything else is crazy

[> [> Subject: Sure - it's none of anyone's business and each parent makes their own decision. But when most are making sacrifices for the sake of others and public health and asking their kids to do the same, the fact that a few New England schools continue to send dancers all over the countryside every weekend and then splash it all over Instagram and FB will raise some eyebrows.

[> [> [> Subject: Exactly. If you are going to travel at a time when the CDC is literally begging people NOT to travel and then put it on social media and then be shocked when people respond with this kind of question.

I think this is where people differ philosophically- many people think that if they stay within the rules, it is ok to travel- and that is understandable.

I also think it's important to be really specific about what a real quarantine looks like- it doesn't include dance classes or 1:1 privates or even trips out to get essentials if you are really doing it right. Some states can test out - that fits the rule book, but doesn't really speak to the timeline of this virus.

The bigger question is whether traveling at all is a good public health choice during the pandemic.

My family is saying no to travel at this point, even if we could meet quarantine/testing requirements upon our return to our home state. Others are coming at it differently- and so they travel.

I don't fault those that travel. As long as they follow the rules of their state, it's fine with me.

But... I do think this kind of non-essential travel may lead to stronger restrictions down the road, and as a parent that is really looking forward to a potential major in the summer, I might be inclined to side eye some of these schools (not just Kenny by the way) if it turns out majors are shelved due to exponentially increasing numbers.

in which case, you would have very effectively alienated me, if that was what I was looking for.

[> Subject: Perhaps the original poster was asking because they are looking for an online option. That’s a completely reasonable question in a pandemic. Perhaps the concern was her own dancer and just wanted an online option. Everyone’s circumstances are different so let’s try to not jump to conclusions and be respectful. These are very difficult times for all our dancers.

[> [> Subject: Awesome response! I hope that was the intent of the original poster - and if not, let's please stop with publicly persecuting ppl for their personal decisions on this board. Please contact schools or persons directly with your concerns. Kindness really does count.

PLEASE stay kind and positive.

[> [> Subject: That was my first thought too. I was surprised to see the responder from Kenny get so defensive. It honestly hadn't occurred to me that this could be connected to feis travel.
