On Tuesday evenings, the new business Lost and Found Country Swing hosts a dance on the top floor of the CoOp building just down the street from Snow College. Because the college cancelled the school’s country swing dances, some students felt like something in their lives was missing which brought about Lost and Found Country Swing.
Auree Thomas and Jonah Sorensen, the owner and manager of the business respectively, decided to start renting the CoOp in order to continue dancing even through COVID-19. Jonah Sorensen says, “I feel like even though we are in a pandemic, people still want to dance and have social interactions. If we can do this and be safe at the same time, then we should be able to have a fun time and continue to dance.”
Lost and Found Country Swing has a COVID-19 policy where they require masks upon entry as well as making sure participants sanitize their hands. There are also waivers that need to be signed saying that people are testing negative for the virus and not showing any symptoms.
Overall the business seems to be doing very well considering they aren’t affiliated with Snow College in any way. People in Ephraim city really enjoy dancing and according to Auree Thomas, the last couple of dances at the CoOp have been “very successful.”
