|contra, covid-19, dance
Some dances are grouped because they are similar forms; others are just grouped because they happen to have consistently similar policies and I had too many colors.
If multiple dots would be in exactly the same place I shifted some to the right so you can still see them.
I didn't code the difference between "strongly encouraged", "encouraged", "optional", "permitted", and not mentioned. All of these are "optional".
"Double surgical" is coded as "surgical".
Some dances offer the option to test instead of showing a vaccination card; this adds another dimension I didn't chart.
One dance requires a booster from within the last six months; I coded it as requiring a bivalent booster, since those are the only boosters that includes. I'm curious if they would turn me away, as someone who got my last shot 7+ months ago and isn't eligible for another?
Ballroom, Bachata, and Salsa don't require anything. Bullet points below ignore them.
Swing dances are the only ones with "masks required until [time]" policies.
Contra and English Country are the most strict on masks (no one else requires high-filtration masks), Swing is the least.
Blues, Fusion, and Swing are the only styles ones that have some series that don't require vaccination.
