Reopening our Concerts, Jams, and Contra Dances


We have restarted our events, although we will continue to monitor the rate of breakthrough COVID cases from both the Los Angeles County and Orange County Departments of Health.  We want to do our best to provide a safe environment for our performers, volunteers, and audience.  Thank you for your understanding and patience.

COVID Data Sources

Here are links to both LA and Orange counties’ data tables and graphs for COVID infections.  This data is updated weekly or biweekly.

For Orange County data, click on the following link, scroll down to County and Statewide Data, type Orange in the Get County Data box, and then click Get County Data.


For Los Angeles County data, the California Dance Co-Operative takes the LA County Public Health statistics and converts them to an easy-to-read format.  To view this data on a Cal Dance Co-Op webpage, click the following link:
