President’s Message

RAMED members and fellow dancers,
 
I’m writing you today on behalf of the RAMED Board to let you know that, in light of the current public health crisis, we have decided to postpone the annual Raq the Prairie show until Fall 2020. 
 
We considered many factors when making this decision, including the uncertainty about when our venue would reopen, the closure of dance studios and other rehearsal spaces, and the directives from all levels of government to avoid group gatherings for the foreseeable future. But more important than any of these, we felt the need to acknowledge that, as a community, our priorities have changed.  Managing uncertain work futures, homeschooling, and the health of family and friends hold a higher priority than any event RAMED might try to host, even if we could guarantee it could go on as scheduled. 
 
As a Board, we sincerely hope you and your families are, and continue to be, safe and healthy during this uncertain time.
 
Darcy Sharman
RAMED President 2020
