MSO DanceSport Participants,
After long and careful thought and consideration, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Summer DanceSport Competition. The Michigan Senior Olympics (MSO) Board of Directors has voted to cancel the 2020 Summer Dancesport Event for safety reasons related to COVID-19. The Board made this decision out of an abundance of caution for the health and safety of senior athletes, the many volunteers and judges who are crucial to the operation of this event.
We know that some participants will be disappointed with our decision, but we cannot safely hold this event and ensure proper social distancing to uphold the governor’s guidelines for the State of Michigan. We also had to make a decision early in agreement with the venue. With so much uncertainty in the coming months, we had no choice but to move forward with this cancellation.
When Michigan is ready to open up and all of you have had enough time back in the studios to practice, the MSO will hold the DanceSport Competition once again in February. When the Winter Games are held, we will have "best practices" implemented to protect your health and we will try to host what we believe is the largest MSO Dancesport in history!
Please mark your calendars for the next MSO Dancesport Competition on Sunday, February 21, 2021 at the Royal Park Hotel in Rochester, MI. Until then, we will continue to monitor the situation and strive to make the best decisions for our staff, community and athletes in the coming weeks for the rest of the summer games.
