**Camp Hollywood updates for May**

As of this date, things are still looking very promising for being able to hold our in-person event this September. Unless things take a dramatic turn for the worse in the next month, we plan to open registration on June 1st.

Please be aware that although we plan to run our “normal” program, some safety restrictions may be required by law and/or common sense. We will most likely require all attendees and staff to be fully vaccinated, and mask coverings may still be required by the state of California for indoor events, so if you would like to attend this Labor Day weekend, be prepared for these possible requirements.

Let’s all keep our fingers crossed that we can dance together again this fall!

04/05/2021

**Camp Hollywood updates for April**

With the vaccine rollout ramping up and Los Angeles now in the orange tier, we are starting to get a glimmer of hope that Camp Hollywood has a chance of existing, in some form, this September.

We will wait to see how infection rates and vaccination rates go for April and May, and as always following science and legal guidelines, will make a determination whether to proceed with registration open around June 1st or postpone until 2022.

Let’s all keep our fingers crossed that we can dance together again this fall!

02/01/2021

Hey, Camp Hollywood friends!

Normally on this date we would be opening for registration, and I would have the pleasure of watching the sign ups flood in from all over the world, some familiar, some brand new. Camp Hollywood would officially be “on”, and we could move on from pre-planning and hiring to getting the finer details in place to welcome you all in September.

As I’m sure I don’t have to tell you, the future for dance events in 2021 is currently very uncertain. As in 2020, we will follow science and our state mandates to see if we can safely and legally open or not. We will wait until we have a definitive answer before officially delaying until 2022.

We miss you all terribly and are eagerly anticipating the day we can be together again! Stay tuned!

Is there any new news for 2021?
HERE'S YOUR CAMP PICTURE, ALL! It's the first year I didn't have to yell, "Wait for the legends to get off the floor." ;)
I missed Friday night's livestream. Where can I see the Solo Team performances that were to be on at 10pm?
First night so much fun!

YAY! Buddy wanted to let everyone know that Rusty loves her Camp Hollywood 2020 T-shirt!
Hello lovely dancers! I lost a musicians earplug at the Sunday dance in the blues room. Did anyone see it or pick it up? Sorry if I’ve already posted about this; in deep into the 6 week old baby no sleep haze!
https://www.facebook.com/kisawings/media_set?set=a.10206346515658625&type=3 Here are my photos from this weekend! Feel free to save and tag people! thank you all for the most amazing time!
Another incredible year at Camp Hollywood! A HUGE thank you to Hilary Alexander and staff for organizing such a wonderful event every year. My first CH was in 1999 and 2019 was my first year teaching. I am so grateful for that opportunity and had so much fun teaching with Jean Veloz and Rusty Frank. Every year Camp Hollywood is a reunion of previous Camp Hollywood's and dancers I meet on the Lindy Cruise. I love this dance family. Thank you all!
Hi! I’m looking for a pair of glasses with a orange stripes on the bottom rims of the glasses and a black Anker powerbank. PM me if you’ve come across them!
