DECLARATION OF SAFE SPACE
The Arizona Lindy Hop Society is dedicated to providing a safe and comfortable event experience for everyone, regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation, ability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion (or lack thereof). We do not tolerate harassment of dance participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery in social situations is not appropriate for any event venue, including dances, workshops, competitions, Twitter, Facebook, and other online media. Participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from a venue or event temporarily or permanently without a refund at the discretion of the organizers.
CODE OF CONDUCT IN DETAIL:
No forms of harassment will be tolerated. Harassment includes offensive verbal comments (related to gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, OR religion), sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of workshops or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.
Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.
If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the event organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the event or venue with no refund.
If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a staff member immediately.
Event staff will be happy to assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the event. We value your attendance and your safety.
We expect all participants to follow these rules at dance and workshop venues.
GOOD ETIQUETTE TO FOLLOW AT ALL EVENTS:
• Please do not offer unsolicited advice to fellow dancers either in class or on the social dance floor.
• Please use your full range of senses on the dance floor to avoid accidental collisions and injuries. It is every dancer’s responsibility to be aware of their own and their partner’s movement and position, as well as the movement and position of the dancers surrounding them, in order to avoid all forms of dangerous contact.
• Please be respectful to all in attendance.
• Finally, be aware of your own boundaries and physical needs.
Please contact a staff member immediately if you are encountering anyone violating this code of conduct or e-mail us at Safe@AZLindy.com or Call/Text (602) 717-2787
