Keeping Up With What We’ll Miss

With performance venues and dance studios closed, here are this week’s SoCal dance events that won’t happen due to the Covid-19. Why list dance events that have been cancelled or postponed? As a reminder of the investment of work, time, money, and heart from dancers, choreographers, creative and technical staff, who now are without work or pay. With the statewide stay-at-home order extended to April 30, many events still hope to eventually reschedule. Meanwhile, more and more dance is shifting to on-line performances or classes. (Latest info below, but please check the websites as these transitions are occurring daily). For now, here are links for information and connection.
