The City of Kitchener Brings a New Version of The Safety Dance for 2021

When we heard the words “The Safety Dance” it conjured up memories of Men Without Hats and their 80s hit Safety Dance.


Now in 2021, The City of Kitchener has a new Safety Dance to help citizens remember all the precautions they should be taking during the pandemic. It includes reminders to wash your hand, wear your mask, stay 6 feet apart and shelter at home. The Safety Dance Challenge is up and running and by posting your version, you have a chance to win prizes too!



Even Mayor Berry is getting in on the action.


“As the pandemic wears on, it’s important that we keep public health safety measures top of mind,” said Kitchener Mayor Berry Vrbanovic. “Our safety dance challenge is a fun, lighthearted way to get up, move, and challenge friends and family to do the same. I’d encourage everyone – families with kids, teens, adults, and seniors to all take the challenge.”
