WHAT DOES "PROPINQUITY" MEAN?
"Propinquity" refers to the physical or psychological proximity between people and how this closeness organizes people and their bodies. "Propinquity Theory" states that individuals affiliate with one another because of spatial or geographical proximity.

 

DESCRIPTION OF DANCE JAM
The PROPinquity Dance Jam, produced by REAson d'etre dance productions (RDDP) uses props as a tool to encourage kinesthetic discovery and joy of play within yourself and others. It also is a great work-out that can build strength and coordination. RDDP provides eight-foot dowels and elastic bands, rollers, and balls of all sizes including tether balls and gymnastic cannons for people to use in solo practice of in duet or trios. This is all done in an outdoor setting with a protocol for disinfecting props. There is one hour of live music.

Do you agree to wear a mask when you are requested to do so?

 

Please be prepared to discuss vaccination status with dance partners who ask. Please note: Legally it is your right to refrain from divulging medical status such as vaccination records. So you can say that you will not divulge your vaccination record and your dance partner will then be able to make choices based upon this.

 

Do you agree to give us contact info in case contact tracing is needed? 

 

Do you recognize that despite a) being vaccinated (if you are) and/or b) the screening, prop disinfecting, mask-wearing protocols there may still be some risk involved in meeting socially outdoors during a pandemic? Do you accept this risk as part of your participation?

 

VACCINATION 

Those that are not vaccinated or partially vaccinated (only one dose) will need to maintain a physical distance of 6 feet from other people not in their household.

Those that are double vaccinated and have gone through the 14-day post-second vaccination waiting period may dance in close proximity or with touch with others at the dance jam as long as they are wearing a mask.

 

Article: https://www.narcity.com/toronto/ontarios-step-two-of-reopening-has-privileges-for-fully-vaccinated-people
What they say is that fully vaccinated people can do outdoor activities such as playing a close contact sport, without worrying about distancing.

We encourage everyone to follow what feels right for them and so if you decided for yourself to have stricter protocol than the government recommends then we encourage you to follow that and we support you in following that.
