FSGW Dance Programs

FSGW sponsors events that are intended to foster a pleasant environment and a tolerant community, and to provide a comfortable experience for all. As a sponsoring organization, FSGW has the responsibility to ensure attendees', participants' and performers' safety and security at FSGW events. Behavior that FSGW deems to be disruptive, aggressive, threatening, harassing, dangerous, or inappropriate in any way will not be tolerated.

If you are an attendee at an FSGW event and you experience such behavior, please immediately verbally report the incident to the nearest FSGW representative, and, if possible report the incident in writing to the President and/or Vice President, or to the Officer responsible for the event (e.g., Dance@fsgw.org if the incident occurs at an FSGW-sponsored dance event).
