Keeping The Dance Floor Safe!!!
Thanks to Genevieve Kent for coordinating SAFE Training through the SAFE Alliance Austin. Several dance organizations in the community have benefitted from attending this training which helps groups develop procedures for keeping dance events safe and fun for everyone. The main focus is to help set standards of appropriate conduct that allow people to realize when they have stepped out of bounds and quickly self-correct. More importantly, the guidelines allow groups to recognize unacceptable behavior and create a strategy for counseling individuals whose actions are deliberate. Genevieve arranged the training as part of her role as the TIFD Safety Committee Chair. You can find her report at tifd.org/september-2017-tifd-safety-news/.
