In order to help prioritize the health and safety of all conference attendees, hotel employees, and the Vancouver community, the Dance Studies Association requires that all in-person conference attendees verify vaccination status in advance.  Scan the QR code below or click HERE to upload your vaccination card now.  NOTE: Canada requires proof of vaccination at entry, using ArriveCAN appDSA's COVID safety protocols also include masking, negative rapid test 72-hours ahead of arrival, and health attestation at badge pick-up.  Click the purple button below to read the full protocols and plan for your arrival in Vancouver. 
As international regulations and WHO recommendations change rapidly, we reserve the right to update these protocols and will notify all registered attendees of any changes. With similar safety protocols in place, DSA had a wonderful gathering in October of 2021 and we anticipate that these updated mitigation measures will again ensure a safe gathering for all of our community.
