The Duluth Entertainment Convention Center will host its first event since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic and shutdown in March. The Ovation Dance Challenge is a livestreamed dance competition which will be held in Symphony Hall on Friday and Saturday.

It is the first event to take place in the center since Manion's Wholesale Spring Buying Show on March 12, according to a news release.

The dance challenge is overseen and designed by Dan and Susan Kuhn. The organizers are working with the DECC to ensure the competition complies with the Minnesota Department of Health and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines.

Guests and staff are required to wear masks, dancers will have their temperatures taken on arrival daily and physical distancing will be enforced. The total number of participants will be closely monitored and non-immediate family members will watch the event via livestream.
