In solidarity with the movement to dismantle white supremacy, Dancing Alone Together is observing #blackouttuesday on June 2.
#blackouttuesday asks that you suspend all streams (music, YouTube, etc), suspend participating in dance classes, and do not post on social media. Use the day to identify ways to help your community. Talk with (not at) your peers. Strengthen your knowledge on contemporary race relations and the history of black social, political, and economic plight.
This is a black out, not a check out. Please scroll down for resources assembled to help mobilize and engage you through this day of collective reflection, planning, and preparation.
Dancing Alone Together was constructed to serve dancers in response to COVID-19, and strives to remain a project that amplifies our community’s needs and actions.
