Dance is inevitably about human connection. So when Social Distancing became the world's reality, Dance could have easily dropped out of the game. But it didn't. In fact, extraordinary dancers from all over the world showed their true grace. Remarkably, and perhaps faster than any other industry (outside the tech one!), the dance industry built a boat and sailed the choppy waters as if that's where it always lived. It's not surprising when you consider that a dancer's work is in finding balance in the most extreme of physical conditions... seemingly, the skill translates to navigating life's extremes, as well.
Please find an unbelievable amount of resources the greatest dancers and dance companies of our time have made available online to the world in just the last few weeks. They are creating human connection, taking an unprecedented leap into online artistry and making things available to us that only a few weeks ago would have been unthinkable.
