Coronavirus Live Updates

Washington Area Square Dancers Cooperative Association - WASCA,

We regret to inform you that the 2020 WASCA Festival has been cancelled due to the coronavirus. Cancellations and requested rollovers were pouring in and we have no idea where we might have ended up, but more than half of the WASCA Board would have been unable to attend and assist because of underlying or potential health issues. The Alexandria Mark Hilton has graciously allowed us to cancel the Festival Contract under the “Acts of God” (force majeure) provisions of the Contract to ensure the health and safety of our dancing community. Expressions of gratitude to the Hotel are encouraged.

We know that you all are as disappointed as we are.

Please call the Alexandria Mark Hilton at 1-800-445-8667 to cancel your hotel reservation. You will need your hotel confirmation number which was sent to you previously by Stphanie and Joe Corson. You must personally contact the Alexandria Mark Hilton at 1-800-445-8667 to cancel your hotel reservation. WASCA Festival Registration will roll over your registrations to the WASCA 2021 Festival. A 2021 WASCA Flyer will be sent soon to those who have previously registered.

Again, we apologize for this once in a lifetime event but we know you all understand the circumstances.

Effective immediately, all of the Square Edges classes (Sunday, Monday and Wednesday) are hereby cancelled for two (2) weeks, due to efforts by Chestnut Memorial United Methodist Church and the Newport News Public School System to mitigate the spread of the Coronavirus.
