Attendees of all CSDS events are expected to be familiar with and abide by our Code of Conduct.

Next CSDS Dance:  TBD

With the level of community transmission still HIGH for Charlottesville, Albemarle County and the entire state, the CSDS Board has decided to suspend hosting in-person dance events until the area’s transmission rate has declined. Neither Swing Swap nor our monthly 3rd Saturday dances will be held until further notice. We will continue to err on the side of caution rather than potentially put our dancers at risk, even with our vaccine only/face masks requirement. We appreciate your patience, understanding and support as we continue to navigate these challenging times. As always, if you have any questions/concerns, send us an email.


  1. Vaccine Verification required (see below).
  2. Face masks must be worn at all times.
  3. Advanced registration is now required for all CSDS events.  Email CSDS to reserve your spot as attendance is limited due to occupancy restrictions.

Vaccine Verification

Submit one-time proof of your covid-19 vaccination by emailing CSDS. We recommend covering up any personal information on the vaccination card other than your full name. The CSDS Board believes vaccination is a key part to returning to social dancing and our entire Board has been vaccinated. For full information on our vaccine only events, please review the CSDS Vaccine Only Events Policies. The Charlottesville COVID vaccination center now takes walk-ins at certain times; you can schedule your appointment here.
