News and Updates

Post-Meeting Update

March 21, 2020

Our Board of Directors met this morning to create a path for Nickel City registrations given the cancellation of Nickel City 2020. To note, when we use the term registrations, it means each registrant’s entire order, including all dancer and spectator registrations, t-shirts, syllabi, and buffet orders.


If you pre-registered, you will receive an email from our secretary and registrar, Kim, by Wednesday, March 25 asking what you would like to do with your registration. You will each receive three options:

(1) Roll over your registration to apply to Nickel City 2021; OR

(2) Receive a full refund; OR

(3) Convert your pre-registration to a charitable donation and receive a tax receipt from WNYCA, a 501(c)(3).


The email will give instructions for responding. We will begin working through this process immediately, but it may take several weeks to complete. All we ask is for your patience with us while we work through this.


Once we have this process underway, we will announce the method for 2021 hotel reservations more towards the end of March or early April.

Nickel City UPDATE

March 18, 2020

After much consideration and monitoring of the daily changes made due to Covid-19, our board held an emergency vote this evening.


Tonight, we announce the cancellation of Nickel City for April 16-18, 2020.


While this may be a foregone conclusion to some of you, our festival has run successfully for 34 years, and as a board, we were required to protect the association and ensure we were cancelling compliant with our contractual requirements. As such, we felt it necessary to gather and process as much information as possible.


Our hearts are heavy but we are hopeful and looking forward to the future. Our board will be meeting Saturday morning to put in place procedures for return of registrations and next year's hotel bookings. We will be reaching out to all who have preregistered to process a refund or credit your registration to next year’s festival. This will take several weeks to complete, and we will update you on the process after our board meets Saturday. Please note, all rooms reserved through the WNYCA hotel block at the Buffalo Grand will be canceled by WNYCA; you will not need to call the hotel to cancel.


We wish you and yours health and safety during these trying times. We will clog together another day.
